No new posts “Just Remember the Lessons!”
There is always a lesson to learn when you watch “The Rifleman.” There is no better teacher for Mark than his father, Lucas McCain. Lucas teaches Mark from “The Bible” and from experience. Sometimes the lessons are hard ones and at times rather easy ones. They are still lessons learned! Let’s discuss the lessons learned in each episode. “Every lesson you learn makes you a better partner.” “Just remember the lessons!”

Mark McCain was a fine contribution to The Rifleman and as important to the show as the rifleman himself. Let's give him the attention he deserves by talking about Johnny's character, his sweet nature and sensitivity. Always learning from Lucas sometimes the hard way, fear of losing his only parent, times he got into trouble, their respect for each other, and how he was portrayed as a motherless kid but had the insight and determination of a disciplined adult. Let's share our thoughts about Johnny Crawford the actor, musician, teen idol and downright fabulous guy.

Pa left out lots of detail that I think you'll get a kick out of anyhow. So take your boots up, put your feet up on top of the table if you want, cause Pa ain't here! Sit back and relax while I take a ride on Blue Boy down memory lane and tell you 'bout how I saw things! (psssst: you can even eat some rock candy or popcorn while your're reading these.

In the television series, The Rifleman, we are given one of the West’s most memorable fictional characters. Not only did he see extensive service in the Civil War, scout for the Army, fight Indians, serve the law, and become a cattle rancher, he raised his only son as a single father. A number of episodes depicted Lucas as being haunted by characters from his past.

Why the title? Well, I'm a night owl and, as Deanne can attest, I do my best writing late at night. Living vicariously in the 1880's through Lucas McCain and his son, Mark, here are my stories about the Rifleman including "The Test" and "Shadow of Vengeance." There's more to come and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do writing them.

No new posts Clara's Corner aka CTW
Discovering the path of the stories in this corner will be an adventure for both author and readers. There are several ideas in "Remembering Wyoming" that might carry over into future stories. Perhaps, for example, each will include a trip that takes Mark and Lucas to a city that was critical to the development of the West in the 1880s. Perhaps one will put Mark in touch with the woman who invented the first automatic dishwasher in the early 1880s. (Imagine his delight!) Perhaps each will continue to tap into Mark's interest in music, exploring how music might have been part of the North Fork community's life. On the other hand, perhaps each will stand on its own. Whatever direction future stories take, readers can be assured that the primary theme will always be the unconditional love between father and son as defined by the creators and writers of the series and so beautifully portrayed by its two co-stars. If you enjoy "Remembering Wyoming," check back soon to discover which path is chosen for the next story.
