Butch and Sundance may ride again


Well, sort of. Paul Newman and Robert Redford are considering pairing up again in a new movie. No they won't portray Butch and Sundance or reprise their roles from The Sting. It will be an adaptation of Bill Bryson's travel book "A Walk in the Woods," the story of the author's hike through the American wilderness with a friend.

Ever since it's release in 1969, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid has been one of my favorite films. I was 12 when I first saw Butch and Sundance ride across the screen. That was the first movie I ever saw multiple times in the theater. They were my heroes and were the subjects of many hours of playing "Butch and Sundance". We would strap on our toy guns (they really used to sell them in the olden days) and re-enact the movie to the best of our abilities.

All these years later Paul and Robert are still my heroes in different ways. Especially Robert with his tireless work as a founder of the NRDC and other pro environmental causes such as the U.S. Green Building Council. Paul is no slouch either. He donates all his profits and royalties from Newman's Own to educational and charitable organizations. Paul has given over $150 million to thousands of charities since 1982. Pick up some of his products. They're wonderful and the product descriptions on each jar of sauce are hysterical.

Redford and Newman may pair up again on screen

Still the Sundance Kid

Hey guys, oops I mean ferries. just finished cleaning my double wide and mowing my grass that hasn't been mowed in a few years. Glad to see your still up to your same old garbage. Hopefully you will have a brain by the next time I waste my time visiting your commie anti-american site.

Ferries? Do we look like vehicle transport boats to you? You never fail to entertain us with your lack of spelling skills. I hope we can accomodate you and have brains the next time you come back. Then at least one side will have some. Ours. All joking aside, thanks for stopping by. We love to hear from our fellow American patriots. Don't wait so long next time. We missed you.

One more thing - I decided to correct your spelling so you won't seem quite so ignorant in the future. I'm willing to do anything to help another fine American.

All right, he's back ! Glad to see that after a hard day of drinking beer and sitting on the porch shooting at his mailbox and the occasional stray armadillo, he can still find time to impart us with his wit and wisdom ! Welcome back buddy, we missed you !

I'm still trying to figure out why he commented on a Butch and Sundance post. Yes it mentions their charitable and environmental work but aren't those good things? I think we can officially refer to him as a troll. Just trying to stir things up - and not doing a very good job of it.
