Back when I was a kid, way back in the stone age, Saturday was my favorite day of the week!
My sisters and I always looked forward to Saturday with unbridled anticipation. We used to turn on the television (10 inch screen) and watch the test pattern until the shows started! Cartoons, the serials, Sky King, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Zorro...the list just goes on and on! By noon we were all outside reliving and acting out the shows we just saw! By 9 PM we were worn smooth out! Tired from riding the range, chasing the bad guys, saving the universe and all the other adventures that our very active imaginations could come up with! Falling asleep was never a problem, ya know? Those were some wonderful days, remember?
I don't think that anyone could argue that back in the 50s, the western was very popular. In fact, the television shows made big stars out of a lot of cowboys and cowgirls!
Do these videos bring back some memories for you? I hope they do, and I hope that those memories are good ones!
Coffee in the kitchen this morning. It's supposed to warm up to the 70s, but that won't happen until the afternoon!
