I have never seen a John Wayne movie. Really. I owned one once….until we lost all of our DVDs this summer!?!? No one has ever taken the opportunity to tell me how important it is that I spend some time with the American icon…perhaps when I am old and need to spend time sitting in a large leather chair…in between re-readings of the most-treasured tomes. Either way, I like this Wayne quotation and try to use it to settle people down sometimes. It doesn’t really work, but I like saying it.
“If you get nervous, count your toes. Let me do the masterminding around here.”
