postheadericon Longmire is Back! Season 4 is Available on Netflix NOW!

Longmire Season 1 at Red Barn Blue SkiesLongmire Season 2 at Red Barn Blue Skies Longmire Season 3 at Red Barn Blue Skies

There is a lot of happy dancing going on around this place tonight. One of our all-time favorite TV series is back! Longmire’s long awaited Season 4 is available TODAY on Netflix.

Hubby and I did a marathon viewing of the first 3 episodes last year when we finally got internet service that would stream Netflix. We were hooked on the series after the very first episode, only to find that it had been cancelled.  What the heck is wrong with the idiots at A & E? (This isn’t the only series we love that they have cancelled..)

Anyways, Netflix to the rescue! They were smart enough to see the absolute obsessed cult following this show has and did some negotiating to order the 4th season. Whoo hoo, yay Netflix! So today is the day, we are finally getting to have another fix of one our favorite cowboy lawmen and his trusty sidekicks. We are re-watching the last episode of season 3 first to reacquaint ourselves with the happenings and then we’re good to go. It’s going to be a late night here. Pop that popcorn hubby.

postheadericon Old Movies and Comfort Food

So what do you do when you’re feeling a bit blue?  Do you exercise, pig out, shop, talk on the phone?  I tend to hole up at home.  If I’m not reading a book, I’ll put in a DVD. And of course, pig out..


Last night was no exception.  Mr. MoonCat had to work late and I was puttering around the house by myself with the critters.  So I put in a movie that always cheers me up (and one that the hubby doesn’t like to watch).  Donovan’s Reef is from 1963.  It stars John Wayne, Lee Marvin, Cesar Romero, and Jack Warden among others.  It is such a departure from John Wayne’s cowboy, soldier and swagger roles.  That is probably why it is one of my favorites of his movies.
Another factor that came into play for me last night was that the movie was filmed in Kauai, Hawaii.  That was one of my Mom’s favorite places that she’d ever been.  Several years ago she was able to go over there for about 10 days.  It was one of her fondest memories and favorite trips of her life.
So anyway I ended up eating pizza while watching this great old, nostalgic movie.  Cheered me up immensely!  Comfort food for the soul and belly..
