that movie about the guy in the bearskin

I'm about halfway through my first watching of True Grit, and it's taught me two important things.

1. I really need to reread Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry.

2. If you give characters odd quirks, they can become truly memorable. I have trouble recalling the main characters' names, but I sure as hell remember Forster. You know, the guy in the bearskin?

He reminds me of the old man in Labyrinth, the one with a bird for a head.

Also, he's a dentist.

And on an unrelated note, has anyone seen these guys?

Missing, since yesterday. We had all these blueberries, and now I can't find them anywhere.

Where is the blueberry picking place? I've been wanting to take my 2 year old picking, but I don't know where to do that here in Atlanta......If you don't want to broadcast it, my email is brickergirl at Thanks!

This one is on Jones Road in Roswell-- it's just a little old house with a bunch of berry bushes in back. There's also a big one in Woodstock called Berry Patch Farms. So much fun!

Lonesome Dove is one of my FAVORITE FAVORITE novels ever. A great western saga like no other...

Charis, if you were a guy, we would totally get married and buy a horse ranch together. Provided your name wasn't Bob, BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO POOR CLARA.

Also? We'd know to steer clear of the water moccasin-infested rivers.
