Magical Nanny University graduate Wednesday is excited about her first assignment at Dr. Thomas Anderson’s home. Since the death of his wife, Tom has buried himself in his work. He has little time for his three daughters. Wednesday’s first goal is to make Tom see how important it is to spend time with his little girls. Secondly, she needs to get rid of his girlfriend (with a little magic of course!) who hasn’t a shred of compassion or love for his children. Third, she wants to bring laughter and fun into his life. But Wednesday never plans on falling head over heels in love with Tom. It’s forbidden for her kind to love a mortal. How will she ever explain she’s a cauldron-boiling witch to the scientific doctor and that she has to leave him and his girls forever when all her goals are achieved?

Saturday, July 16 is National Day of the American Cowboy. I used to read lots of western romances and I still love watching a classic western. When I taught college American cinema courses one of my favorite genres to discuss was The American Western. It is the oldest type of American film. The Great Train Robbery, a silent 1903 film, was the first movie to tell a story – a narrative.
The American Cowboy: A symbol of independence and individuality
Favorite western movie: The Big Country starring Gregory Peck
Favorite western romance: Outlaw Hearts by Rebecca Brandewyne
Favorite film cowboy actor: Tom Selleck and Sam Elliott (it’s a tie!)

I’m very patriotic. I love my country. My favorite holiday is the Fourth of July. I sing the words to the Star-Spangled Banner whenever it plays. I tear up every time I read the Declaration of Independence. My favorite biography is John Adams by David McCullough. My two favorite historical books are 1776 by David McCullough and April 1865 by Jay Wink. What the United States of America accomplished during the Revolutionary War was amazing, incredible and its victory shouldn’t have happened, but it did and I’m thankful for it every day. My country is not perfect, but there is no perfection in this world, only the ongoing universal struggle for “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
My Fourth of July involved a classic small-town celebration with bratwursts, a parade, music in the park and fireworks. Loved it!
I also visited the Minnesota Marine Art Museum over the holiday weekend. It’s located in Winona, Minn. Beautiful paintings, including Washington Crossing the Delaware by Emanuel Leutze. I’ve posted this before but it’s such an iconic painting I have to post it again!
