Happy New Year's Eve

Always check your fireplace because Pa taught Israel to hide in the chimney when they were under attack.  Now can someone lend me a bar of soap and wash rag?

Now & Then

Remember Peter Richman who played Hawk in 'The Renegade' on the DB TV show?  He starred on the Daniel Boone TV show in the Season 4 episode 3 'The Renegade' as 'Hawk', a former chief that breaks out of prison to reclaim his son who was living with a family.

There's two ways to get involves staying out in the sun too long.  There other is to watch the Daniel Boone TV show's 'Tanner' episode.

That's Neville Brand and Darby in the Daniel Boone TV show 'Tanner', which aired in October 5th of 1967.
On a side note, for those that enjoy such things, according to the imdb website, after Israel first encounters Tanner, Israel attempts to run away but falls down a hill and is knocked unconscious. When Tanner picks up Israel to carry him to the creek, a large mud spot about a foot square shows on Israel's right rear hip. At the creek Tanner sprinkles water on Israel to awaken him, then Israel quickly gets up and walks away. His pants leg is now dry with no signs of a mud spot.
And this wasn't the 1st time these two appeared on screen together. Check out part of their history together in these two photos!

DID YOU KNOW - Facts about Wild Faith the movie

It only rained once during the filming of "Wild Faith." It lasted 30 minutes and then stopped.
For a movie filmed mostly outdoors in unpredictable Michigan weather, that seemed like an unexpected miracle to many among the cast and crew.
But not the lead actor, Shane Hagedorn.
“I can honestly say that, every film that we’ve done, the weather has done exactly what we needed it to,” said Hagedorn, who also is a producer for the film, which was shot in and around Hastings and Battle Creek. “I’ve even had cast and crew going ‘This has never happened on any other film I’ve worked on.’ We’re just glad to have the opportunity on this earth to create, and God provides those opportunities."

"Wild Faith" is an independent Christian movie set in Michigan in 1875. It follows Emmett Murphy, a Civil War veteran struggling with his memories and his community as he tries to keep his family together, including a black woman and her daughter whom he has taken in.
“We had to find areas of Michigan that had historical parks and could look like it was untouched by time,” Hagedorn said. “Barry County was a no-brainer for us. It was beautiful, and we appreciated their enthusiasm in bringing us on board.”
A lot of the filming happened in Historic Charlton Park in Hastings and a frontier cabin at the Battle Creek Outdoor Education Center campgrounds in Dowling, which is between Hastings and Battle Creek.
It took the director, Jesse Low, weeks of scouting to find a cabin that would work for the movie.
A pioneer cabin from the early 1800s was brought down to the campground in the 1970s from Alpena, said Matthew Santner, the events and day program coordinator at the center. It burned down in 2004. The cabin at the camp now was based on the original.

“They filmed on site at the Outdoor Education Center for five days, and it was fun to have them here,” Santner said.

Bill Tilghman and the Outlaws

For those that asked, the new film from One-Eyed Horse Productions is called 'Bill Tilghman and the Outlaws', and it's now in post production. Written by Dan Searles and directed by Wayne Shipley, this light-hearted, action packed western is about what happens when a movie production company in the early 1900s tries to make a motion picture about a bank robbery–with the help of real lawmen and real outlaws. Help spread the word!
