Baggie: Clint's heard you're a great cook and he wants to come over for dinner ... better make that, he and Dina want to come over for dinner. What will you fix? And will you ask him to come early and scrape the carrots? ;)


I have had enough company who are used to "upper crust" to know that sometimes the most plain of meals is the best route to go. I can't compete with great chefs, so I wouldn't even try. I would, however, dig through my family cookbook for some really good stuff.  I don't know what he likes, but I know what I like!  ;D So I would probably cook my pork chop and yam cassarole a la orange. And waldorf salad, using pecans. With fresh, warm Italian herb bread. And homemade cherry-berry pie. I would con my friends who drink wine into donating the proper wine, although I would go with Jekel Vineyards Johannesburg Reisling, myself. And since I have it on good authority that Clint indulges in cookies, I would make my favorite Oatmeal-chololate chip.   God, now I have made myself hungry...

And I have quite a reputation for not having everything in order, so I probably would end up with them peeling the apples! Both Clint and Dina. So I wouldn't  be tempted to scrub the tub!   :-*

Baggie(b):   You're having dinner with a friend at the Mission Ranch, and you're discussing John Denver's music.  At some point during the conversation, Clint happens to sit close enough to overhear part of your discussion.  He explains that he's working on a film that would have a feel similar to Bronco Billy and he was looking for just the right song for a slow dance between him and his leading lady.   Clint asks if there's a John Denver song that you would recommend for a scene like that.  Assuming that you're not in a state of shock, and are capable of answering him ;) what song would you recommend?

Funny you should pick that scenario...up to the Clint part, that has happened many times. We often sit around at Mission Ranch Restaurant or the Rio Grill and discuss John's music and other legacies.  It would be very easy for such a conversation to be overheard.
I was with some of my John Denver group last weekend and put this question to them.  We all agreed that the song which first came to mind was For You originally from the Higher Ground cd. I tried to find a web site that would have an audio sample, but couldn't.

John Denver and Clint Eastwood ... my mom's two favorites.  I grew up with both.  But Clint's artistic view has always been a little ...um, darker,and closer to my heart, and even more so as I've grown older, and even movies like Bronco Billy grow on me more because of it's relation to his total artistic view.  John Denver had a dark side, but he didn't let it show enough in his music -- for good and bad.  When I got a computer and learned my way around it, it became my mission to find the album Aerie on cd, and get it for my mom.  I had to buy an overpriced import from Japan, but I finally got it for my mom and myself -- it's my favorite album of his.

I have to say I've never heard (that I know of) the song For You.   I'm sure my mom has it; it's a nice song.
