Great photos by the way. I don't care for men with beards, but there is one there of Ben that's . . . . well.
I know, Anne, I know! sigh...

Lz, you truly have the gift for scenario..... Oh my word! That is a hoot....

Anne- do you think maybe you could step out with bad boy Mitchum for just a little bit.... I'd be glad to help console Ben in the meantime......

Wagon Master is my favorite movie of all time. Ben's wonderful in it, and it's the most lyrical movie I've ever seen. It just flows like a river....

I love the 3rd-from-the-top photo about "much obliged", the way he cocks one eyebrown oh-so-slightly. Just perfectly. His expressiveness is dead-on.
