It was awesome, all decorated in western style with lots of Roy and Dale pictures:)
I loved the shadow and saddle in the ceiling beams.
On the way into the museum.
This is the 1923 Dodge the took the Slye Family to California in 1930, Roy was 18 at the time. Slye is his real last name by the way.
The Rogers' Family Table it was made for them by George Montgomery (a western star too).
"The Sons of the Pioneers" the best western harmony group ever! And they are still going, they started in about 1936. Of course the members have changed over the years. Roy, Tim Spencer and Bob Nolan were the founding members. Clockwise started with 12 O'clock Bob Nolan (he wrote a lot of their songs, his best known being "Tumbling Tumbleweeds"), Carl Farr, Llyod Perryman, Tim Spencer (also an author of their songs), Hugh Farr and Pat Brady. Not in this picture, Ken Curtis (of Gunsmoke fame), Ken Carson and Shug Fisher and a few more over the years.
Yes Roy really did Mount (he preferred not to say stuffed) Trigger "The Smartest Horse in The Movies"
One more shot from the show, the man in the hat is Gary LeMaster He was a member of "The Sons Of the Pioneers" for 20yrs. and he knew Roy.
Notice Dusty's squinty eyes just like his father, it's their Choctaw blood:) .It is sad knowing that the museum is closing, I planned on bringing my (in the future) children to the museum. But I thank the Lord for allowing me to go. It was like heaven for me, I just loved it.
