Roy Rogers Museum In Branson Closes - Prices At Auction Of Memorabilia Skyrocket!

Happy Trails To You


HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU

The young guns may not understand the meaning of this, but you should!

The Roy Rogers Museum in Branson, MO has closed its doors forever. The contents of the museum were sold at a public auction.

Roy Rogers told his son, if the museum ever operates at a loss, close it, and sell the contents. He complied.

Note the follow-on article truly the end of an era.

Here is a partial listing of some of the items that were sold at auction.

Roy's 1964 Bonneville sold for $254,500. It was estimated to sell between 100 and 150 thousand dollars.

Trigger sold for $266,500.

Do you remember the 1938 movie The Adventures of Robinhood, With Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland? Well, Olivia rode Trigger in that movie.

Trigger was bred on a farm co-owned by Bing Crosby. Roy bought Trigger on a time payment plan for $2,500.

Roy and Trigger made 188 movies together.

Trigger even outdid Bob Hope by winning an Oscar in the movie Son of Paleface in 1953.

It is extremely sad to see this era lost forever. Despite the fact that Gene and Roy's movies, as well as those of other great characters, can be bought or rented for viewing, today's kids would rather spend their time playing video games.

Today it takes a very special pair of parents to raise their kids with the right values and morals.

These were the great heroes of our childhood, and they did teach us right from wrong, and how to have and show respect for each other and the animals that share this earth.

You and I were born at the right time. We were able to grow up with these great people even if we never met them.

In their own way they taught us patriotism and honor. We learned that lying and cheating were bad, and that sex wasn't as important as love.

We learned how to suffer through disappointment and failure and work through it

Our lives were drug free.

So it's good-bye to Roy and Dale, Gene and Hoppy, the Lone Ranger, and Tonto.

Farewell to Sky King and Superman and Sgt.Friday.

Thanks to Capt. Kangaroo, Mr. Rogers, and Capt. Noah and all those people whose lives touched ours, and made them better.

It was a great ride through childhood.

HAPPY TRAILS MY FRIENDS

P.S.
Don 't send this to anyone under 50...they won't understand or care!
