It's that time of year when one thinks back to Christmases past... and all the excitement and anticipation... and searching thru the Christmas editions of catalogs at all the toys!

Television cowboy shows were popular when I was little and we all wanted to be like Roy Rogers and Dale Evans... or Gene Autry.... or The Lone Ranger.... and the catalogs were full of all sorts of things so we could be cowboys too!

Me... I had a major crush on Gene Autry, The Singing Cowboy, who wrote the words to Here Comes Santa Claus as well as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer!
