We don't get out much. Still talking about our vacation a couple weeks ago. Time to put this puppy to bed.
We did fun stuff.
We ate well.
We were in "Cowboy Christmas", one of the larger shopping gatherings during the rodeo national finals, when we saw this display.
Bullet and Trigger. Roy Rogers' faithful sidekicks.
While looking at the display, a younger women asked "Who is Roy Rogers?"
Words fail me. I am old. Oh My Goodness, I named my mustang "Ranger" because we bought him the day Clayton Moore died (okay, for you children, he played the Lone Ranger on over half of the TV shows) and I thought "Clayton" would be a stupid name for a horse.
Who is Roy Rogers? Gene Autry? Hopalong Cassidy?
How about- Who is 50 Scent? Enema (or is it Eminem)? Snoop Doggy? Assalt and Pepper?
I am old now.
I remember, years ago I heard Roy had Bullet stuffed after he passed away. Roy had Trigger stuffed after he passed away. I remember thinking "Man, I hope Roy dies before Dale...".
If you get that, congratulations. You are old, too.
