May 1907 - May 2007: John Wayne
A few days ago, May 26, we celebrated John Wayne's 100th birthday. Pictured here with Maureen O'Hara from the eternal favorite The Quiet Man, it is a duty of honour to mention The Duke: Patsy is a huge fan of John - probably the biggest in Ireland! So a tip o'the hat to The Duke and we leave you with a few lines of dialog between John and Maureen O'Hara from The Quiet Man:
Thornton: If anybody had told me six months ago that today I'd be in a graveyard in Innisfree with a girl like you that I'm just about to kiss, I'd have told 'em...
Mary Kate Danaher: Oh, but the kisses are a long way off yet!
Mary Kate Danaher: Well, we just started a-courtin', and next month, we, we start the walkin' out, and the month after that there'll be the threshin' parties, and the month after that...
Mary Kate Danaher: Well, maybe we won't have to wait that month...
Mary Kate Danaher: ...or for the threshin' parties...
Mary Kate Danaher: ...or for the walkin' out together...
Mary Kate Danaher: ...and so much the worse for you, Sean Thornton, for I feel the same way about it myself!
