We were all 'straight shooters' back then

(Continued)

We had a ball, letting our imaginations roam, let me tell you. We walked the walk and talked the talk.

When I see grown men today wearing a cowboy hat, I just feel jealous. Some even have the Western shoes. I often think that they are play acting too. Recently seeing a rescuer at the marathon bombing wearing a Western hat, I couldn’t help but say, “There is a straight shooter for you.”
