Roy Rogers

Well today is Roy Rogers 100th Birthday.

I really had a good laugh the other day, I was watching an old Roy Rogers movie on RFD TV.....and before I knew who the star of the movie right in the middle of a shoot em bang bang gun battle they break into a song

Did you ever notice that they could be in a rolling on the dirt drag out fist fight and they lost their white hat I guess way back then they had super glue.

Happy Trails to all of you.

It didn't take rocket science to separate the good guys from the bad guys.

Hat colour was real important way back when.

I won a contest when I was about 8 and got to meet Mr Rogers on stage in my home town. Talk about being impressed with this man and his troop. He became my mother's favorite cowboy actor from that date until she died.

He sure made me feel like an extra special kid too.

A great memory that I will carry to my grave.

Great guy was good ol' Leonard Slye - not only the movies but the Pioneers and
Son's of the Pioneers songs.

Yep, loved Roy Rogers. Use to go see him (his movies) at the Relto Theater for the grand total cost of NINE CENTS. What I loved was that 106 shooter he had. He could shoot 106 times without reloading and then he only would put in a couple of bullets and ''bang bang'' all over again. Trigger was smarter than all the bandits and crooks put together and who could help but love Gabby Hayes? Like you said.... Roy could ride like the wind, jump off his horse and roll down a hill fighting a bad guy all the way, wrestle on the ground and never but never lose the white hat. AMAZING.. I was always amazed at how they could always arrive at the ''ranch'' just as Roy finished the song.
such were the days back then for a skinny kid watchin' his hero Roy Rogers...

Thank a vet for your freedom. Some died to give you that freedom ....

Howdy!

Roy was and still is my role model I look up to. I would hate to fine a role model for my grandchildren in this day and time. Roy and Dale were not only TV and silver screen stars and great family.

Yep, they don't make western movies like in the past. I miss Roy and Dale, The Lone Ranger, Gene Aurty. Kids don't have heroes like we did.

Got to meet Roy a few years before he passed - he made a point of wandering around the lobby of his museum every day, to meet his fans. We purposely showed up at opening time to have a better chance of seeing him - shook his hand and he treated us like family. If everybody was like him the world would be a better place...

When I was stationed @ George AFB in Victorville Ca, I remember going through their museum. I see now that it was moved to branson in 2004 then closed a few years later. Too bad

I sure felt priviledged to have them as role models. No comparison to the Hollywood "trash" of today. Sure will be glad when "nasty" goes out of style.

That's one of the first shows I can remember watching on tv. I really liked Roy and Dale, and Gene Autry and their style. Tv nowadays should step back and take a look at the junk they put on there.

SiriusXM ran a number of Roy's radio shows today on Radio Classics (My favorite channel).

For those of you that are missing Gene Autry, he is on the Encore Western Channel every Sunday morning. They have a lot of the old classic TV shows.

My faves were Buster Crabbe and Al "Fuzzy" St. John.
