That day we all crowded around and watched Roy Rogers? That's when we recalled the older days, when it was exciting to go to Grandma's and borrow her videos with all those Roy Rogers adventures. Of course we loved Grandma's house. Period. But it was us, all children again, with Roy and Trigger. And Roy's girl. And pistol fights and chases on horseback. Gabby Hays. I love Gabby.
I love old things.
Old dreams I used to live.
It's good to be reminded of where you've come from, where you've been. You can see where you're going just a little bit clearer.

Going somewhere? How to see where you're going
