Hi Ho Silver, Away!

You're not seeing things. That's Roy Rogers & Dale Evans above, even though "Hi Ho Silver... Away" is from Clayton Moore of The Lone Ranger, who's horse was "Silver." But I just loved watching Roy & Dale and The Lone Ranger too. Actually, I think I loved his horse Trigger the most. However, I did adore Roy because he always, and still today, reminds me of my Papa (my dad's dad) with the smiling blue eyes. Not only was he your typical loving grandpa, he had the sweetest smile, loving personality and twinkling blue eyes that I've ever seen. I miss him more just thinking about him.

Anyway, I loved the part where the Lone Ranger said "Hi Ho Silver, Away!" Wow. Does this date me or what?! Oh and I used to sing the "Happy Trails" song all the time. Hmm, sometimes I still do.

Speaking of silver. I've now added my handcrafted Fine Silver (.999) Ball End Headpins to my shop. Yep. I just keep adding and adding - what can I say, I'm enjoying playing with metal so much that I don't know when to quit. Oh, and I'll be adding oxidized headpins as well, but they can be requested until I'm able to post them.


Well, I need to 'skedaddle' on out of here and mosey on over to my studio as I have a ton of work to do today. Hi Ho Silver, Away!

"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."

(p.s. Just a note that I updated the post to include The Lone Ranger, just so you don't think I've lost it. But then again... ;)

Oh, oh, oh, YES!! Roy Rogers!! Growing up in LA there were Roy Rogers restaurants, Roy Rogers Museums, Roy Rogers State Park, Roy Rogers Blvd, etc, etc... :D Oh and you even included the song! ♫

Ok, so I LOVE the new headpins and will have to check them out! I've been ordering them from "another" seller so I'll be hitting up your shop as soon as I run out. :D

Yay for the headpins! Woot!! :o)

And this may sound a bit ignorant, but I thought the saying "Hi Ho Silver...Away!" was from the Lone Ranger. DOH! Man, I need to brush up on my TV History or sumpin...

Have a great weekend my dear!!
Hugs,
Ang

Thanks Sue!

Oh we've been to the Museum years ago, love it! And thank you Sharon :)

Ang you are correct about the Lone Ranger (played by Clayton Moore), but I wanted to use the Hi Ho Silver... and include the "Happy Trails" theme because I love Roy Rogers & Dale Evans :) Guess I'll add Clayton, the Lone Ranger (watched that one too!) in the post too. Thanks :)
