Signs of Aging
For those of a certain generation, this is a reminder that time waits for no man (or woman) as we celebrate Roy Roger's 100th birthday, November 5.
He personified the "good guy" in countless Western films and his TV series. By all accounts, he was one in real life, too. His signature song was "Happy Trails."
America used to have lots of Hollywood heroes like Roy, Gene Autry, and, of course, John Wayne. It's hard to think of one from today's flood of films.
Like many, I miss the Saturday matinees of my childhood. And with good reason!
