Notes Tied On The Sagebrush

I was thinking about a film in which one of the main characters is a woman living out in the middle of the frontier in the American West. Her husband goes off on some business and does not return. He had died when his horse stumbled and fell on top of him, trapping him. She is waiting for him, and in the meantime, trying to hold things together for her family. She is very lonely and writes notes about her feelings and ties them on tumbleweeds. One day a cowboy finds the notes. (The film is โ€œConagherโ€ with Katherine Ross and Sam Elliott based on a novel by Louis Lโ€™Amour.) In the film and book she ties her notes onto tumbleweeds which are different plants from sagebrush. But I like the idea of sagebrush better for my blog.

    Hi, Deborah. I see you’ve done the Gratitude Hop and am hoping you’re good with being Tagged for the storytelling. Am thinking you can put a lovely sagebrush spin on what is turning out to be a dark tale! I had oodles of questions for Apple Pie, who tagged me, so please don’t hesitate to holler back. Heck, I don’t know if I followed the rules correctly ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have fun!

    Hi Deborah, just jumped from your post about The Ghost & MM to see About You. Pleasure to meet a fellow movie fan. I watched Conagher one day and was surprised how good Katherine Ross was. I always thought of her as just the pretty girl from Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid. The girl had chops ๐Ÿ˜‰ Those are the girls we want to be like!

    Hi, Deborah! I stopped by yesterday, with plans to nominate you for an award. Then, I saw that two other bloggers had nominated you for different awards within the past couple of weeks. I decided that you probably had enough on your plate without my adding a third award; yours was the first name that came to mind for the award, however. It’s exciting to see that you have passed the “200” mark in followers, and you truly deserve it: your blog is personal, well-written, interesting, topical, illustrated with photos or graphics, and — most important — never boring! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Deborah,

    This isn’t an award. I don’t accept those either. This is fairly easy and doesn’t consume any more time than what you already spend creating a post. If you choose not to participate I am okay with that.

    I know many of you like me donโ€™t accept awards or participate in challenges. This one however, is just doing what I do when I post so I gave it a try. There isnโ€™t any obligation to participate if I pass the challenge on to you.

    Here are the rules for the โ€œFive Photos Five Storiesโ€ challenge: โ€œPost a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.
    (Sporadic posting is alright if youโ€™re unable to post each day.)

    Hi Deborah! I came across your blog through TJParis. Love the photograph (everyone seems to, but it does draw you in) and am looking forward to exploring. I come from Greece, so it does look very exotic to me!

        Quite true, but my own background can be “read into it all” and good memories abound. I grew up on the plains of Texas and remember the sagebrush and the tumbleweeds well. I wore a headscarf most of the time to keep from being blown away with them. โค โค โค
