THE QUIET MAN
I don't know how I missed this movie, it's been on the boob tube at least a zillion times throughout the years AND I love John Wayne movies but I have never seen 'The Quiet Man'. Oh my goodness! What a good love story and a really fun entertainin' one at that. CD even watched it with me, and he enjoyed it. It is one of the best love stories and if you have never seen it be sure and check it out. It is traditionally shown on TCM every St. Patrick's Day and I'll be sure and watch it from now on.
I so wanted to just put the video clip here but I can not get it to work for me that way, I don't know what I am doin' wrong, so if anyone knows what to tell me, please do.
Click on the link and watch the clip. I so LOVE this movie. I am such a sucker for a good love story. They don't make very good ones anymore.
Thanks to Jodi over at Live Today, Cherish Yesterday, Dream Tomorrow, I am now able to put that video on here for you. When you see the movie on TCM the quality is a lot better than on this video. Hope you get a chance to see this movie.

Wikipedia lists a
Hillbilly as: Someone who lives in the Ozark Mountains.
I know a lot of people who have moved here from other parts of the country and they are definitely not hillbilly's.
So visit for a spell and I'll show you some pictures of these hills, give you some recipes for good down home vittles and fill you'uns in on a little hillbilly way of talkin and some history on them thar hills!
I hope you and yourn enjoy my website.
