No, it's not a Lyle Lovett sighting, but I do have quite an affinity towards western wear at times. I'll have to blame my grandfather for this one. Back then, I'd spent a lot of days sitting on the cellar stairs in Westbrook watching him work, covered with sawdust, making furniture. In the late afternoon, he sit me down, in front of that big Philco in the corner, to watch Hopalog Cassity and my favorite, the Ranger Rider. The hats, the leather vests and bandanas- oh my! I was intrigued! If not Dickens' England, then transport me back to the ol' West. Cast me in period costumes of "Lonesome Dove" and "Deadwood", and I'd be a happy man. Have a restless day, pardner!
