  1. Hi Lily, for some reaon I can only see the pic of Sofia Loren. I’m of an age that these guys are the stars I know best. Rio Bravo is the best western ever. It has cowboys, love interest, humour and music. What more could you want?

    • Hi, Hun!
      Not sure why it decided all the pics were corrupted….. but anyways, I think I’ve fixed it!
      Hope you enjoy them as much as I did and do!


    • Hi Jen!

      Still haven’t figured out why my PC or blog had a dummy spit! LOL the cyber gremlins are clearly alive and well! I’m just glad I was able to re-upload the pics.

      Thanks for stopping by!
