The ravings and ramblings of a retired lunatic....once professional, now just an amateur.
Your memories have warmed many hearts this season.Thank you.
I'm very happy that, while warming my own heart with my memories, I warmed up a few others.
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.
One of my parents friends had three boys.....I always ended up tied to a post.
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.
For quite a while I was Roy Rogers...then I discovered Annie Oakley.
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.
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?
So Cute!!!I see that you have saw-horses in the corral :}
One of those was 'old paint' lol.
Oh, this is a great photo ...Thank you for sharing with us such wonderful memories of your childhoodAll the best Jan
How adorable!!! Gifts were so simple back then--kids actually had to use their imagination.
You look SO happy in that photo! I'm with EC - your memories have added to my Christmas this year - thanks for that :)
It's lovely to know someone else is out there. Please leave me a comment...pretty please.
