Roy Rogers: King of the Cowboys

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you, 'till we meet again.
—Dale Evans Rogers; lyrics from her song Happy Trails

It's the birthday of the "King of the Cowboys," Roy Rogers, born Leonard Franklin Slye in Cincinnati, Ohio (1911). He was my boyhood hero as I was growing up in the 1950's in central New Jersey. He was to me, I think, as Clancy of the Overflow was to my mom growing up in New South Wales, Australia in the 1920's and 30's. Roy Rogers passed away July, 6, 1998.
