A Favourite Christmas Gift




'Cowboy Joe' wearing one of her most favourite Christmas gifts.   My trusty steed by my side, my six shooters at the ready, bring on the bad guys.  Probably 1951 or 1952.

    1. I'm very happy that, while warming my own heart with my memories, I warmed up a few others.

  2. My brother had a cowboy outfit and an Indian out fit too. I always had to be the Indian and get shot dead within the first five minutes. fine with me, I could lie there and read a book while they all played around me.

  3. That is an adorable photo, Delores. I loved playing cowboys when I was young also. I also had my first crush, not on The Lone Ranger, but Tonto. At that time, I was attracted to a quiet man.

  4. That would have been my favorite gift, too. :) My girlfriend has the coolest fringed cowgirl outfit, with the hat, holsters, and guns. Loved it! I had the gun... and probably a holster, too, but I can't quite remember. But I loved that cap gun. And the smell of caps. If we didn't have a gun, we made the caps go off with a rock. Good memories. Thanks.

    1. I had an army tank you wound up with a key, the turrets turned and it fired caps along with a lovely puff of smoke. Can you still buy the rolls of caps?
