ME AND DUKE WAYNE – BY GARRY ARMSTRONG

I liked him so much I named a dog after him. Now that is appreciation. Our Arizona vacation is a trip back in time to some of my favorite western movies and TV shows. The cactus covered fields and surrounding mountains evoke memories, especially of John Wayne-John Ford classics. The locales around Phoenix are similar … Continue reading ME AND DUKE WAYNE – BY GARRY ARMSTRONG

MOSES, MEL, AND ME – GARRY ARMSTRONG

Before I put a finger on the keyboard, I admit this is probably heresy, at least to some people. One simply doesn't make fun of religious movies. It is simply not done. Especially not these days. But I do. Every Passover or Easter (usually, it's both together), Marilyn and I watch "The Ten Commandments." We don't watch it … Continue reading MOSES, MEL, AND ME – GARRY ARMSTRONG
