CATTLE PUNCHING ON A JACK RABBIT

CATTLE PUNCHING IN THE WEST!
Some Cowboys use their favorite Bronc for Cattle Punching and some, as you can see, prefer the Jack Rabbit.

Mailed from Norton, Kansas on June 11, 1963 with the message:
"Dear Bud. Haven’t seen any this big yet but maybe tomorrow. Drove 603.9 miles today. Good roads. Very little traffic. Both fine. Don’t worry. Love, Hilda"

HAPPY MUSEUM DAY

ROY ROGER’S [sic] MUSEUM
Apple Valley, California
Roy Roger’s Museum is located near the Roy Roger’s Apple Valley Inn. The Inn is the center of activity for the valley. The museum is the art center of the valley with paintings by great western artists. One of the greatest is Bill Bender who not only can paint but a fellow who grew up in the saddle.
Here one may see mementos that Roy has collected on his hunting trips and from years in motion pictures. The old fort-like building is topped with a large replica of Trigger that stands guard above the entrance.

I love errors and awkward writing on these postcards. Here, they misplaced the apostrophe in Roy’s name (Roger’s vs. Rogers’). They tripled down on the error so at least they were consistent. Fortunately, it is correct on the museum’s sign.
It must be really uncomfortable growing up in a saddle.
I once had a pony named Trigger.
That is all.

WESTERN COWBOY RELOADS
When I was 4 years old, I had an imaginary Cowboy friend. His name was Tex. One summer day my neighbor across the street was sitting in her breezeway with a female friend I hadn’t met before. They were laughing a lot and loudly. I walked up to them and the friend thought I was adorable and she asked me my name and I told her and I introduced her to my friend, Tex, “He’s a Cowboy” motioning with both arms to the air at my right. They laughed a lot and loudly.
Tex died that day. They killed Tex.
