Happy 2016!!!!!

 Do you remember these 2?  Dale Evans and Roy Rogers?  I used to watch them every Saturday morning along with Hop Along Cassidy, Gene Autry and The Lone Ranger.  They're both gone now and probably all the above names also.  Yesterday would have been their 69th wedding anniversary.
I was watching some biography sketches about them on You Tube yesterday.  You can find out more there.  Here's a few pictures I nabbed..........
What a sweet couple they were and big hearted too.
I always though Roy was the handsomest man I'd ever seen and Dale was so pretty and a real cowgirl!  I never knew he had a receding hairline as he always had his cowboy hat on.  I wonder if the hat caused that?  They were married in 1947 at the Flying L Ranch in Davis, Oklahoma.
 I was born in 1949 so I missed the wedding.
I don't know much about their lives before they got married but it seems like Dale might have had 2 children already?  I'm not sure and then they adopted a bunch and had foster children so it's hard to tell.  They both loved children.
 Dale must have dyed here hair at sometime....I loved the old hairstyles..........
 And of course who could forget Trigger?  What a horse!  I still can't get over that he had him stuffed.....not sure how I feel about that but he was an awesome horse there was no doubt about it!
 This must have been in the days of "big hair" and look at the sideburns on Roy!
 I sure loved them and their show and what great role models they were.  I remember a book I read more than 40 years ago called Littlest Angel or something like that.  It was written by Dale and told about a child they  had that died.  I don't know if it was theirs or adopted.  I'd love to find the book again and read it.  I think I'll search for it online and see if I can find it.
***I found the book      Angel Unaware
 They went to church every Sunday with their entire family and Roy and Dale (and even Trigger sometimes) would visit children in hospitals.
I think I'll see if there is a biography written about them.  I'd love to read about each of their lives even before they met.  They were some of the best that ever came out of Hollywood along with their other cast members and who can forget The Sons of the Pioneers and their songs?  Our generation was very fortunate to have these types of people and shows on t.v.  They were wonderful role models.
Happy Trails!

P.S.  Here's a short biography of Dale 
and Roy
I guess they were both married a few times before they met....who knew?
P.S.P.S.  Dale wrote the song Happy Trails and also a song I sang in Sunday School....Yes, Jesus Loves Me, The Bible Tells Me So

  1. Roy's first marriage only lasted a year. His second wife died of childbirth complications. So sad, but not unusual at the time. Maternal care has come so far. Dale had her first child when she was only 15. Together they had one daughter who had Down's Syndrome and died when she was 2. They did raise Roy's 3 , Dale's son and adopted 4 more. Lots of adversity in their lives, but it must have been true love!

    1. I know....they seemed to rise above it all. I'm sure there are lots of people like that but we just don't hear about them because they're not famous. I admire all people who "rise above" whatever struggles they go through because, let's face it, we all do. It just seems that some get more than their share.
      I couldn't believe she got married at 14 and had her first child at 15! She never had a childhood! Thanks for sharing all the info!

  2. I thought Anna Warner wrote Jesus Loves me in the 1800's? I cannot believe they stuffed old Trigger either. Loved the Saturday Morning Cowboy/Horse shows") Happy New Year!

    1. Well, it could be wrong as it was a biography website or maybe it's a different song called The Bible Tells Me So. Happy New Year to you also!

  4. I always loved Roy and Dale. Thank you for sharing so much about them. I doesn't seem that there are role models like them in the public eye anymore but maybe I just don't see them. :-). Happy New Year!
    Blessings,

  6. Never got to watch their shows, as we didn't have t.v. growing up.
    Always thought that they looked like a kind couple and very much in love though.
    I'll have to read about them and see some of their shows one of these days.

    Have a happy day!

  7. It's been years since I'm seen their shows. Thanks for reminding me of the old Saturday morning TV shows.

  8. I can remember watching reruns in the 70s. In fact, I just commented on another blog the other day that when we would visit my Mammaw in Mississippi for the holidays, I can remember everyone walking down the street to church and I'd be stuck in front of the tv watching The Roy Rogers Show. I thought he was so handsome and was totally in love! :)
