Roy Rogers is Riding Tonight #WordlessWednesday

Last week, my spouse and I visited the Tioga County (New York) Historical Society, which has its annual Christmas display, "Oh Tannenbaum".  

Each year they have a different display of toys or something similar.  This year, the theme was Westerns.  

I couldn't take good pictures due to not wanting to get close to other museum goers, but I got this picture of a display of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans memorabilia.

Here are some other Oh Tannenbaum posts of mine from past years:

Oh Come O Ye Memories (that year, the theme was the circus). 

After a Major Flood

Oh Tannenbaum 2019 

And this song immediately came to mind, complete with a fan made video including clips of Roy Rogers.

Joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for her #WordlessWednesday.


  1. Thank you for the video. I like the image, even it's a little bit surprising the choice.
    Thank you for sharing this and the links. I'll explore them later.
    Happy WW and a fine week!

  2. Wow, I’d forgotten about the Elton John song

  3. I remember him well. I grew up with him. Beautiful.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  4. Oh, my! And suddenly the memories are just so thick and lovely!

  5. I get so inordinately homesick when I read your blog.... Carol C

  6. Roy, Dale, Trigger... My husband has discovered the Lone Star channel and pre-Tv Roy did his own rather amazing stunt work in movies! I think they were pre-Dale.

  7. Oh, how fun. Nice you got a chance to see it, even if it was interrupted by other people. Too bad these things are open to the general public ;)

  8. Roy Rogers was a Marriott fast food joint round here. They were by and large acquired by Hardees- and now Hardees is Carl's Jr. Amazing how the Westerns fade away. (Thankfully NOT Yellowstone!!!!!!)

  9. Roy is definitely riding haha!

    Have a neightaatic week 👍

  10. your photo was just fine to show all those lovely treasures

  11. The first Roy Rogers Museum was in CA, and my family visited when I was a little girl. It was horrifying for me! It had his horse and dog there, stuffed! I was especially upset by the dog. I don't know how I knew about him really, the show went off the year I was born. Books maybe? All I know is they had horses, and I was crazy for them!

  12. I liked Trigger...don't think I would have liked to see him stuffed, either. People outlive horses, but still...I'm glad their children didn't have Rogers & Evans stuffed.

  13. I haven't heard that song by Elton John in a very long time. It always was a favourite.
