Picture of the Day....
John Wayne won his first and only acting Academy Award in 1969 for his role in True Grit. He played U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn, an eye-patching drunkard and lawman, who helps a young woman named Mattie (Kim Darby) track down her father's killer. A young Glen Campbell joined the pair on their mission. Rounding out the cast, Robert Duvall and Dennis Hopper were among the bad guys the trio had to defeat. Upon accepting his Oscar, John Wayne said, "Wow! If I'd known that, I'd have put that patch on 35 years earlier."
Only 1 Oscar! Hmmmm.... He was awesome. In fact once when I was working with another deputy he wanted to pull a car over and give him a ticket. I said, "You can't do that." He asked why and I said, "Because he has an 'I love John Wayne' bumper sticker!" He laughed and didn't pull the guy over!
Also, when my Jerry was born his mother said to his dad, "here is John Wayne Maxwell". His dad said, "no, that won't work!" So they named him Jerry Wayne. :o)
