Duke Days of Summer {$100 Giveaway}

This post and giveaway is sponsored by INSP.

As many of you are fellow Baby Boomers, I thought you all might be interested in this giveaway! Did you grow up watching westerns on television? I sure did! My dad was a big fan of westerns and he gave me a love of westerns also, so this genre was a part of my childhood and I still love them to this days. Cowboys were the real He-men back then and John Wayne was one of the best!

Today I’ve got a different post for you, but a fun Summer giveaway and something you might be interested in too for these lazy summer days!

When there’s not much on TV for summer you can find something to watch which will take you back to childhood and those old Westerns we grew up with.

    A man’s man definitely a western hero I think maybe forever. Always wanted a guy who could compare with my hero cowboy. I’ve always loved John Wayne as a child I wanted to be just like him. After I had grown up I have a lot of his ways. Nowadays I watch him with my great grandchildren. I love all his movies. Would have to say Red River is my favorite.

  2. When I saw this post I knew I had to call my 38 year son who is a huge John Wayne fan and get his input. As expected, I stayed on the phone with him for 30 minutes listening to him go through every John Wayne movie and debating with himself his favorite. He got into so much detail about the cast of each movie and the winner was finally “The Comancheros” with Rio Bravo coming in second and Big Jake coming in third. I didn’t realize that John Wayne’s son/grandson were in that movie with him as well. All in all there is no bad John Wayne movie and there will never be another Duke!

    • Hey Teresa, I loved hearing this! Westerns really made a mark on our generation and the younger ones too.
