I’ve always been a fan of all things western. Even to this day I’ll watch a Gene Autry or Roy Rogers movie. And a couple of careers ago I even played Roy and Gene music over the radio.
Given these were actually popular about the time I was born makes me a little bit out of the loop.
Now I read that many of the items from the Roy Rogers museum, including Trigger, were sold at auction.
Some how this seems wrong on a couple of levels.
First, obviosly interest in the Roy Rogers story has dropped off enough so the museum wasn’t a paying proposition. This world needs more people who pay attention to the philosophy and life style of the cowboy heros.
And secondly, if you spend more than a quarter million dollars on a horse that’s been dead for 45 years you have way to much money on your hands.
