No thanks on the horse, but I wouldn't mind having his '64 Bonneville.
Sad actually, and I think there is a generation who don't know anything about Trigger, Roy or Dale Evans.
I've always heard they were super-fine people. Didn't they adopt about 12 children or so, during their marriage?
A guy like RR was just about the ultimate role model.
It seems like yesterday that Clint Black and RR did a music video together, though I can't remember the name of the song

Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
I'll withhold any and all comments about "kicking a dead horse...."
"I practice the ancient art of Klik Pao."
Oddly, that horse is worth a whole lot more money dead than mine are alive. If I'm going to buy a horse, I better be able to ride it.

Holy crap! Trigger's dead?!!!
Spent a lot of time with Roy, Trigger, and Dale while I was growing up! Roy was one of the best, loved children, stayed married to the same woman his entire life. He never had a scandal which surrounded him. He was a Master Mason, which is a good thing! I wish the kids today had such a role model.

Socialism tries to give the slave all the advantages of his security together with the benefits of freedom, and, in the process, destroys both the free and the enslaved.
I discovered the best thing about owning horses is selling 'em.
Clint and Roy's song/video was called 'Hold on Pardner'.

But Roy was so violent, brandishing weapons at all the bad guys. Much too poor of an example for kids theses days--especially with SpongeBob to look up to!
