Happy Trails to You, Arch

I know many of the people who read my comments about the passing of Arch may be too young to understand why I ended my comments with Happy Trails to You, Arch.  This was a popular song in the 50’s and 60’s sang by many but made famous by Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.  Here’s how it goes.  🙂  I’m barely old enough myself to remember !  🙂

Arch loved to discuss B&W TV Westerns

  2. Carmen you can’t be over 39 . You were just a gleam in your Daddy’s eye when this song was popular. 🙂


  3. Ahhh. . .but you’ve been kissing the Blarney Stone. 🙂


  4. I found this comment from Arch about Gunsmoke. As I said earlier, Arch loved to talk about old TV Westerns. 🙂

    @KC – RE: “Gunsmoke” – 9 o’clock, Saturday nights, on CBS!

    My parents used to plan their Saturday night around it (they didn’t get out much)! We’d have sandwiches, and chips, and Pepsi on TV trays in front of the television. You may not know whether or not it was going to rain, but you KNEW that “Gunsmoke” would be on at 9 o’clock, Saturday night, on CBS!

    The show ran for 20 years, and until “The Simpsons” beat them out a few years ago, had the record of being the longest-running show on TV. Networks today will run a show for 13 or so episodes, take it off for a few months, then put it back on – how is a show supposed to gain a following like that? I’ve seen some quality shows canceled because they were poorly presented.

    (Years later, watching re-runs, I would get quite a chuckle watching Matt Dillon riding his buckskin with the “mountains of Kansas” in the background! For those who don’t know, Kansas is flatter than a flounder.)

  5. I liked the way you signed off. Didn’t know the origin of it, but the sentiment was perfect.
