It’s the 17th! Again! How in the world does this date sneak up on me every single month? 🙂
I’ve been working on my next sports romance – Southern Heat. While I love writing sexy, alpha athletes, I do miss the cowboys of Shadow Maverick Ranch. I blame my need for more cowboys for the fact that I’ve become enamored with the TV series Bonanza. The show comes on my satellite every afternoon (usually around the time I break from the writing cave for sustenance), and every afternoon I’m glued to the TV – watching Little Joe, Adam, and Hoss be, well, cowboys.
I love old movies, and it seems I also love old TV series (I think I was 2 when Bonanza went off the air). There is something about the way stories were told – something real and romantic – that speaks to my heart. Of course, I do find myself giggling at how dramatic some of the scenes are – over-acted fight scenes, women swooning (seriously?), and guns firing too late.
So, what happened to all the cowboys? I think shows like Bonanza provided a good example to young men about honor and integrity. Something our world desperately needs, don’t you think?
What are your favorite old western TV shows or movies? I’ll run out of Bonanza episodes eventually – so give me some recommendations!
