My Heros Have Always Been…

In case you aren’t familiar with the song, it’s cowboys. It’s true. I dreamed of riding horses and shooting guns. I adored Chuck Connors in The Rifleman. I was thrilled when I got to pet his horse at the 1963 Houston Fat Stock Show, as we called it, and one of my most treasured Christmas gifts was a toy Winchester saddle gun from Mattel®.

A trip to Smithville, Texas for the Texas Photo Festival yielded several shots of cowboys. While some were actors, others looked as if they had just come to town from the ranch. This guy was a favorite of mine.
