With Cowboy Happy Jack
With Cowboy Happy Jack
Today we're off scouting shooting locations for our new series:
Striving for the utmost realism for our new show, I'm taking some time out of my busy rehearsal schedule to see if I can find places that will truly reflect how it was living in the old West. Like in 1974 old!!
Here I've come upon a waterin' hole. I don't know why anyone would want to water a hole, but it seems like all the westerns have to have one.
And of course you have to run across a bunch of THESE before you find the waterin' hole. This is the no-waterin' hole. This is where at least one of the guest stars for the week has to come to die because they didn't listen to you when you told them there wasn't any water in that direction. I think this will be a pretty good place for dyin'. (And possible Emmy nomination in the 'best dying scene next to a no-waterin' hole because you didn't listen to Cowboy Happy Jack' category!)
That reminds me, everyone needs to practice talking without putting a 'g' on the end of words. Evidently the letter G wasn't invented in the old West. They had this letter (') instead.
Our next location is on MARS. Yes, our new TV series
may include some SCI-FI elements to attract the young geeky-nerdy types. Maybe our wagon train will be attacked by aliens and we will be transported to distant planets. Who knows? Certainly not the writers!!
LOOK! LOOK! LOOK!Casting news for the new series will be posted shortly! All of my bloggy friends have so much talent, it was easy to find the best of the best to star in our new show.
So, here's Cowboy Happy Jack, wishin' you a rootin' tootin' hi-falutin' shootin' scootin'...
(TG: That's enough. Say good-bye now.
CHJ: 'ood bye!)
An important note from the TG:
I was reading Khyra's blog yesterday and she brought up a very scary point. Do you have your blog backed up? I didn't (I kept a pdf file until recently - when my computer crashed and burned!) So, I'm trying the WordPress backup to see if it will keep a copy of the entire blog (not just the last post). I would hate to think about losing almost 2 years worth of work (and I should have known better!) I'll let you know how it goes!
5 minute later update!
It seems to work pretty well. I would give it an A-. It copied over all the stuff WITH THE EXCEPTION of BLOGGER VIDEOS - the YouTube videos came over fine. There are some formatting issues, but as long as the content is there, I don't have a problem with that. The issue with the blogger videos may be something that I can correct (as I haven't used WordPress before). It took about 4 minutes to copy over 500 posts AND the comments AND the pictures as well. It only takes a few minutes to set up a WordPress account. So thank you Khyra and Khyra's mom for reminding me to do this!
