Happy Trails

In my last post, just a few minutes ago, I ended with my usual closing wish for you to enjoy "Happy Trails" and then I mentioned the recent (January 27, 2013) death of Sally Starr.  You may have wondered what the connection was.  It was simply that I always thought of the Happy trails son as a 'cowboy' song and when I think of cowboys, I think of Sally Starr, although the song belongs to Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, who were not a New Jersey celebrities, as Sally Starr most certainly was.  By the way, the song was written by Dale Evans.
Anyhow I like the lyrics and here they are:

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you, 'till we meet again.

Some trails are happy ones,
Others are blue.
It's the way you ride the trail that counts,
Here's a happy one for you.

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.

Happy trails to you, 'till we meet again.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcYsO890YJY

(Here's a link to youtube where you can hear Roy Rogers and Dale Evans sing this song.)


(Maybe hiking every day at Big Timber Creek, site of the former Slimm's Ranch, has put me in a cowboy mood.)
