    The Old West Lives On

    This is for all the old geezers (like me) who grew up with the old Western movies and TV shows.

    Remember Saturday afternoon matinees and primetime TV that we watched with the whole family?

    Cowboys and Indians, gun-slingers and outlaws, white hat heroes and black hat villains, they're all here, brought back to life.

    Watch this all the way through. You won't be disappointed.

    Those Old Westerns


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Rudyard Kipling

    Brought back many memorys, so many of the greats gone, but not forgotten. when the last of them go an era will have forever ended, except in the memories of us "old timers".
