Justified is quite a ride


I mistakenly purchased season 2 of Justified, I will have to reset my brain and go back for season 1, but this series is stark, entertaining and quite unlike anything I have seen before.  Timothy Olyphant ( he formerly of Deadwood) is the lead, US Marshal Raylan Givens in the world of today, the world being his old home zone of Harlan County.  Bad people are there.  Margo Martindale plays the matriarch of a crime family who will I am certain be popping up in my nightmares for years to come. Walton Goggins as Boyd Crowder, reforming criminal (or is he really just returning to form), is a wonder and I hope to keep on the track of following his work for years.

Graham Yost (son of Elwy, if you live in Ontario you know who I mean)  is the brains behind this TV work.

Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty and so many more like Valdez is Coming and Cat Chaser) created the characters.

A Dutch Leonard quote: “If work was a good thing, the rich would have it all and not let you do it.”

Inger Stevens


Caught the 1969 thriller movie, House of Cards, starring George Peppard and Inger Stevens. A movie i had seen many years before on TV. She looked stunningly, achingly beautiful in it. I have fond memories of her from her successful TV show, The Farmer’s Daughter. I found a collective biography of actresses who died young and read about Stevens. She was beautiful, talented, worked to help others and died senselessly at the age of 37.
