3 Ways To Know How Your Stick Floats

Author Stephen Blyby Stephen Bly

A man from Bellevue, Washington wrote to me that he could recall his grandfather always saying, “Well, if that’s the way your stick floats.” He wondered where that came from.

 I wasn’t sure if it was a western-ism, but dug around until I found the source.

Western Movies & Women's Wear

Western Movie: Shane starring Alan Ladd, Jean Arthur, Van Heflin
Movie: Shane

by Stephen Bly

The main drawback to some western movies is what I call "Shane's Disease." This is a cinematic illness that's non-fatal, but that weakens a tad an otherwise decent movie.

For instance, in a couple different scenes of Tom Selleck's Last Stand at Saber River, Lorraine Kidston (played well by Tracey Needham) wears pants. The movie is set in 1865, Arizona Territory. No lady of any standing would have dreamed of wearing pants.
