These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

One more thing

When I was a little bitty squirt I had SUCH a crush on Roy Rogers. I know some of you have no idea what I'm talking about. Allow me to enlighten you. Roy Rogers was a cowboy movie star and singer in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. I fell in love when I was about three or four, in the mid 40s. I had a cowgirl outfit ( red corduroy skirt and vest with white plastic fringe, and a red cowboy hat with white trim) that I would put on and when I heard his music on the radio or could talk someone into putting his records on the record player, I would dance like a crazy woman, er, child around the living room. Often I was entertaining the adults, but I wasn't particular. I just danced for love !!!

Here he is with his wife Dale Evans.

And here he is alone, Hubba, hubba!

One more. Sighhhhhh.

And then I got to be a little older and my crush faded. I still liked him, don't get me wrong, but I was too old for childish crushes when I was a more mature eight or nine.

And about the time I was nine, I fell for another man. This time it lasted for 55 years. It began when my sister brought home this handsome man.

Hmmm. There is a likeness between the two men, don't you think? Getting right down to the nitty-gritty, I think my brother-in-law was the more handsome of the two.

I honestly didn't notice this until the last couple days, so I just had to share it.

Tomorrow I'm moving on to other topics, but that just had to be recognized tonight. :')


  1. If I can find a movie of Roy and/or Dale on I make sure to point it out to the kids and we usually watch them him and Gene Autrey. Great cowboys with great values your bro in law had to be a great guy to compare to him. Just know he is at peace peace and hugs to you my friend


  2. Thank you, Bobbie. He was an exceptional man. I don't remember ever seeing him angry. I'm sure he was from time to time, but only his better side showed.

  3. I would die without my Western Channel on Encore. Well, I love cowboys and we have some handsome ones around here, Oh to be 50 years younger, lol. Your BIL was a very handsome guy and I know you will miss him greatly.

  4. Moni, I haven't watched that channel much. Do they still show Roy Rogers films? Yes, my BIL was very handsome and is missed deeply.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
