On the fringe with Roy Rogers

Our Boy Roy

Dale shouted to Roy "Are you still messing those fringes. Darn you Roy, you spend more time on that jacket then you do cleaning your Peace Keeper!".
Roy Rogers was the last of the true bon vivant cowboys. A beau beau brummel at heart Roy spent an inordinate amount of time on his Western wardrobe. His lead hands would make fun of him, often asking him what his favorite color was, or if his boots were made in Paris.
But today Roy was ready for rough weather (the fringes help rain run away from the jacket), and an even rougher time at the Sawtooth Ridge. Photo: Jacket of a book viewed in "Country Antiques", Excelsior.
