In the 1969 movie, True Grit (for which John Wayne won his only Academy award for Best Actor With an Eye Patch), Rooster Cogburn (played by the aforementioned Mr. Wayne) is standing on a ferryboat (as opposed to a fairyboat.

Without the Mrs. Penwasser part.
Plus, she has pictures. Quite a few pictures. With captions. Now that's right up my alley (NOTE: Often heard in a gay bar). And probably yours (NOTE: Often heard in a swinger's club).
Let's face it, pictures grab your attention. And pictures with
Thanks to the A-Z Challenge, I have more than just a bunch of parentheses laying around. I was also fortunate to be visited by Valerie which caused me to return the favor.
I'm glad I did. I have yet to find a clunker, unlike the occasional goose egg you'll find here. One of them, a post about how how she wishes she were a phone virus, was so funny I avoided drinking milk.
And put up with the hassle of typing in the link so you could automatically go to it. If for nothing else, have a look at how she handles a wrong number. You'll learn a lot about Pluto.
Apparently, it's no longer a planet.

But, at least my name doesn't make middle school boys laugh.

And there's still no pictures in 50 Shades of Gray!!!"
Anyway, do yourself a favor and have a look at her blog. I don't often recommend blogs, but when I do, I recommend Valerie Nunez and the Flying Platypi.
