VISITED ME IN HOSPITAL WITH BROKEN LEG IN TRACTION

by Norman Keaton
(Roselle, IL)

MY MOTHER ARRANGED IT. I WAS IN AWE, TOTALLY UNEXPECTED. THAT WAS IN 1958.

MY ALL TIME FAVORITE COWBOY WAS GABBY HAYES. AT THE COW PALACE I WENT OVER TO MEET HIM. STANDING ALL ALONE IN A CORNER, HE LET ME HOLD HIS PISTOL, SAID NOT A WORD. IT WAS FOR REAL AND I ALMOST DROPPED IT.

I DID NOT LIKE SINGING COWBOYS. MADE NO SENSE TO ME FOR THEM TO STOP TO SING WHILE CHASING BAD GUYS.

WHEN I SAW IN ONE MOVIE GABBY DIE ON A ROCK, I CRIED UNTIL NEXT WEEK WHEN I SAW HE WAS VERY MUCH ALIVE.
