I really recommend the book.  The young girl in the story has so much spunk!  It has a lot of funny bits.  It's the kind of book you want to keep reading and don't want to end.  Good movies usually are adapted from good books.

I like most Clint Eastwood movies.  I watched them with DH who watched my Hallmark movies with me, so just an even exchange in marriage.  :))

I loved watching westerns on tv when I was a kid.  Rawhide was probably my favorite and that is where I first saw Clint Eastwood.  I didn't know that True Grit was in book form.  I really enjoyed that movie.

We certainly get into interesting discussions.

Janet, you are so right.  Men love Eastwood's movies.  I like the old westerns, especially the ones from the 50's and 60's.  I like Maverick, Wagon Trail and Gunsmoke.  We watched all the John Wayne movies.  Did I mention that I recently read True Grit?  It was so good and has a Christian message.

I did enjoy Clint E in the Every Which Way But Loose movies, but I really disliked his spaghetti westerns.  Some of them didn't even make sense.  I never heard of a man who didn't like them though.  Same with his Dirty Harry movies.  I also liked the one where he played the secret service agent & John Malcovich played the assassin and I liked the one called "Grand Torino".

We have spent many a Spring in Carmel and at the Hog's Breath, his bar...he started in Spaghetti Westerns, then on to Rawhide, his big series here in the States...I too like him a lot better since he has aged and mellowed...

My book stash is way bigger, handstitcher!!!  I cannot seem to get rid of books, I just stack them somewhere else. I know that there are some I really should donate, but when I start to go through them, guess what happens? A member of my family will find me hours later sitting on the floor reading, with a donation box holding maybe two books in it. So, it is not a quick process. :0)

 I have never really thought about Clint Eastwood one way or another, I don't think I have ever seen a movie with him in it, or anything.

My, Clint has had an active life!

Comment by Janet/MO on Tuesday

Vilma, I'm sorry that I missed your question earlier.  Yes, Scott Eastwood is Clint Eastwood's son.  Clint Eastwood has 7 kids by at least 3 or 4 different women.  Some he was married to & others he wasn't & I think Scott is from one of the non-married relationships.  Allegedly Clint Eastwood owns a ranch about 20 miles south of where I live in Mid-Missouri, but I don't know that to be true or not.  I have to admit that I immensely disliked him for many yrs as I thought he was an egotistical jackass, but then when he got older & started poking fun at himself I started to like him better.  Now I'm back to not really liking him very much.

With older favorites, I do pick them up when I see them cheap because the library regularly culls their collection. I'm one of those people that likes to re-read favorite books. My sister has a Goodwill Outlet store (who knew Goodwill had an outlet store?!) where all the books are 15 cents on Sunday. She regularly gets brand new hardcovers there. She also picks up quilt books for me when she sees them. Nice.
