Beware, Matt!  It's headed your way.  I don't know how strong it will be when it reaches you but don't underestimate Harvey!

Forgot my password so had to go through all those steps to retrieve it!   That's what I get for being away so long.

Anyway, I am fine.  I live in Katy, TX which is about 25 miles west of Houston.  We got over 30 inches at my house but, thankfully, no flooding.  My son lives about five minutes from me and he is fine, too.  There were some major concerns for a while because I live where a bayou runs behind my house (part of a Federal Reserve) but it never even threatened.  The scariest part for us, if there really was one, is that our subdivision was cut off from the rest of the world for about 36 hours.  It's a strange feeling to know that no one can get to you if you need them.

Compared to everyone in this area, my concerns were minimal.  Who would have thought we could get between 30 and 50 inches of rain (depending on where you lived) and NOT all be floating away.  I feel so sorry for those who are suffering so much.  Cleaning up and rebuilding will take forever!

I use to live in Victoria, TX and they got hit hard.  I still own one rent house there and it took some serious damage.  Trees were blown on the roof...and knocked a big hole in it and all of the carpet was ruined.  (I could send you pictures but have forgotten how to do that, too.). I've already filed a claim and the adjuster is supposed to be there by the end of the week.  With the deductible, I guess that will cost a pretty penny.  Ugh!

But, all in all, I am grateful I'm still here (with no major problems) and my extended family is safe.  I have a great deal to be thankful for.

(Forgot how to use the smilies, too.  Otherwise this post would have been more colorful.  LOL)

mgk: Which of Clint's movie dogs do you think would make the best pet for children? The main ones I have in mind are the four dogs in Tightrope, the "mangy red-boned hound" in The Outlaw Josey Wales (but cured of the mange, we'll assume), and "Meathead" in Sudden Impact, but feel free to choose another one!

The easy part is that I would choose one of the dogs in Tightrope because I already know that they are great with kids.  The hard part...which one?  I think I would choose the one they found in the street when they were playing football.  How can you not love that homeless, filthy dog that the girls pressured Wes into keeping.  Just what they needed...another dog!  ::). But he cleans up nicely.  :)


The Scoffield Kid:  If Clint contacted you about making a movie in the vastness of Australia, what would the story be about and where would you recommend they shoot it?  I've always enjoyed movies made in Australia by Austrailians.  They are usually good stories and the filmmakers usually take their time telling the story and they are usually character-driven.  My kind of movie.

Matt:  This is a question I tagged Whistledixie with earlier but haven't heard from her.  I like the question so am passing it on to you.  If Whistledixie answers, too, that's okay. Might be interesting to see what each of you comes up with.  if you were an actor, which role in any Eastwood movie (male or female) do you think would have been the most difficult to try and capture and then express?  Explain why you think so.

Great!  But, you're probably not going to let me off that easy, are you?  >:(. I guess I'm supposed to tell you who said it and to whom!  Right?  :tickedoff:

Well, if anyone else can jump in here, that would be great!  I moved a few years ago and I'm not set up to critique these movies like I used to.  IF....IF I get myself set up anytime soon, I'll try to find it. ::)

By process of elimination, I don't think it could be Unforgiven because the two prominent kids are both Munny's and no other kids come around.  In The Outlaw Josey Wales the only kid is Josey's but he is killed early in the movie.  As for Tightrope there are two prominent kids but both are Wes Block's and I don't remember another kid in that movie.

That leaves True Crime.  We have Everett's daughter, Kate (played by Francesca Eastwood) and we have Gail Beecham, (played by Penny Bae Bridges) but I don't remember them on screen together.  I don't recall any other children.  However, I must the movie True Crime?

Hmmm, and it takes a woman to do it.  Bless their hearts.

SKIP this one until we answer the one above.  I got lost there for a minute. :-[ ::). I'll bump it after we figure out who's talking about the kids in KC's post.

(Just a giggling behind the scenes.   :knuppel2: :knuppel2:  I'll figure all of this out one of these days.)

Is it Wes Block in Tightrope?

Well, that was dumb!!  :knuppel2: :knuppel2:  Of course it isn't Wes Block!  It's a NON-Eastwood quote. 

Back to the drawing board.  :-[

I played a first-rate detective in an Eastwood film.

Other credits are mostly TV movies and series but I did play a person with a famous last name in one of those and a "movie GIANT" as a co-star.

The most overthunk (is that a word?) "this or that" in history.

So true.  ::). And, I thought all genius minds (Matt, Conan, KC and mgk) were supposed to run in the same direction.  We sputtered and spewed and finally shot off in four different directions on this one. ;D

Well, obviously, I didn't get it!  :knuppel2:  Read something entirely different...made it more difficult.  Now I get it!  That falls under "can't see the trees for the forest" or something like that.   :idiot2: Right?   Okay, going along those lines, I still have to choose:

Lee Van Cleef

He's too good. two.  Worst actress!

Wanda de Jesus as Gracialla Rivers in Blood Work


Sonia Braga as  Liesl in The Rookie
