    When you get there make sure you do reservations at Guildings. We were there not too much after they filmed the new Lone Ranger ( which is very bad ) they had to drive back and forth to Flagstaff as there wasn't any rooms. The Navajo village is not close to anything.

    Just a few years ago we stayed a few days Guildings lodge at Monument valley. Standing in from of Cpt Brittles and driving around the Mittens. I could barely sleep at night thinking of what we could see and do the next day. I think the road down into the valley is the same one John Ford made in 1939. Have been to Winterset a couple of times but it pales to being at the valley.

    A touch late for Merry Christmas so will go with Happy New Year. Our house took in numerous JW movies this past weekend. As mentioned above we missed the Christmas classics like Godfathers etc.

    Every time I see someone pick the top 5 I go those are good and change one or two on my list. When you are JW fan and most people know it then you always get asked what one is your favorite, One day I really thought and came up with the top one but after that it is the top 20 or so.

    Rooster Cogburn (even over True Grit)
    Searchers the dark character is so much different then other movies
    Yellow Ribbon mostly because I've been to Nathan's home at Monument Valley
    Cowboys so many lines I use in everyday life
    Quiet Man just to show he made other movies besides cowboys movies

    Tbone, Thanks....This whole idea started when I moved my JW standup and I noticed the buckle. Then started looking at other pictures and noticed it showed up a lot. Based on Red River being an older movie I thought it had to be worn a lot more than one movie.

    Last year I asked at the Winterset museum and they could not offer any info on the buckles. With the exception of course they are available on line. BTW I'm only 3 hours from Winterset but if you haven't gone since they built it a few years back you surely should.
