I'm Your Huckleberry

One of my favorite
movies of all time is
Tombstone.
I can still hear
Val Kilmer
saying,
"I'm your Huckleberry."

Of course,
that leads to me Tom Sawyer
and Huckleberry Finn
which leads me to dreams
of building a raft of wood
and setting sail down the river.
It's never to late
to dream.

So please join me
on my journey.



















Look closely,
this is the reflection of the sky
in the river.









Tom and Huck?

Oh to be on a little boat on that river floating along with not a care in the world. Bliss!!!

I wondered if you were going to mention Tombstone. I think I like Wyatt Earp better -- I always get the two confused.

Beautiful sky photos and reflections. :)

Kathy said...

There are days when I'd love to float down the river too and leave it all behind--THANKS for the ride, today is one of those days! :-)

Marissa @Life On Our Side Of The Mountain said...

Isn't it funny how one thought can lead you to others? :)

I had to laugh, when I saw your title Jill. My husband really got into that movie this summer. He will go around the house saying I'm your Huckleberry, to the point of annoyance! He he. The photos are beautiful, I love the fall.
