Saturday, December 12, 2009


This is the last day... the end of the Museum. A sad day for the Rogers Family and for the fans.

I heard Dusty say that he went to a restaurant one time and found out they had changed the drink (a soda type drink, of course) named for his father "Roy Rogers" to "harry potter".

Well that's what's wrong today, parents don't let their kids watch good things like Roy. Oh, they are too violent, they talk about God, right and wrong, well, we just can't have it that clear, it's all relative, and punishing bad behavior and bad guys (they were probably mentally unstable at the time, so therefore should not be punished) well it's just not good for children, very harmful. AHHHHHHHHHHH!
Ah, but instead of that! we let them watch more educational things, movies that make them want to read, Good Wholesome family movies like harry potter... HOGWASH!!!!!!!!

Alright I'm finished raving for the moment :) Too bad the days of Roy had to go, but of course
they will be alive at my house always.

Hey let me know, Do ya'll hear a word and a song pops in your head?? I have that bad, all the time a word triggered a song like "always". When I typed it the song "Always" by Irving Berlin ( I love Irving Berlin) popped into my head and will probably be there all day:)

If I knew how to put songs on here I'd put Dusty's song "King of the Cowboys" a tribute to his father. Well I don't know how to do that but here's the lyrics:

He's rode across our silver screen
For over sixty years
He's brought bad men to justice
he's seen laughter he's seen tears
and I know forever in many hearts he'll reign
As the King of the Cowboys
There is honor to his name

He's a kind and gentle legend
a hero's right to fame
he's taught folks to see the right from wrong
And he's taught me the very same
And I know forever in many hearts he'll reign
As the King of the Cowboys
There magic in his name

He's the King of the Cowboys, a legend in his time
A man who loves his country
Where he will always ride
Saddled up on his golden Palomino
A six gun by each side
His spurs and boots and his white hat
Walks a man with a lot of pride

He's the King of the Cowboys, a legend in his time
A man who loves his country
Riding off into the sunset
In a western sky of blue
He has given precious memories
and Happy Trails for me and you!

~Happy Trails to you all~

Adventures in Friendly Club Forrest

A Jungle Window
Don't you just love this bridge?

Look before you step. What do you see??

I didn't see him and almost stepped on him before my brother stopped me.

Of course I had to stop and take pictures of flowers along the way:)

Deep in the (the hundred acre woods... ah childhood memories:) woods we found a little dam,

And on it we found this plack(sp?). Awesome huh, 1944!! World War II was still on. If anyone knows what the Friendly Club is let me know.

A giant pecan downed by hurricane Ike. Most of these picture look better bigger.

Same Pecan.

The depths of the woods. When you're there it takes you back to a different time. There's nothing but God's creation so it could be any era. This swampy looking place makes me think of the days of the underground railroad.

Suns coming down...

the end to a perfect day:)

It's snowing!!!!!!!

I'm having a ball, it's so much fun to have snow. Our's is still going hasn't stopped yet. I'm building a snowman, it's going to be the biggest one in Texas!!! Ok maybe not, but the biggest one I've ever made and only the 4th (2 in Tx.) one in my life.

Kinda looks like Jack in the Box:)

Very blurred pic I know but it gives size. It weighs a ton, I could hardly push it around when I was finished. It is the base, I'm about to go back out to do the rest of him.
Be back soon with more snow adventures. Merry Christmas
P.S. Snowman making tip: put on mittens then put rubber kitchen gloves over that and you'll bee warm and dry:)

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Howdy Ya'll

The forecast says there is a 20% chance of SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for Fri. evening. I hope I don't miss it if it does:)

Here's some snow memories

'04 the big snow(ha ha). It came on Christmas Eve. night for us, talk about story book perfect. All the neighbors were outside, throwing snowballs (including grown men, they were the worst:)or just standing watching it fall. We actually had enough snow (by rolling in all the neighbors lawns) for a snowman!

As you can see no snow remained on the ground during the day, He lasted 4 days though.
