Daddy and Dale Robertson

Today would have been my daddy's birthday. Here is a little remembrance of the wisest and kindest man I ever knew.

Dale Robertson played in the TV Series Wells Fargo from 1957-1962. Daddy liked the show and watched it faithfully each week. Westerns were his favorite.

We were living in a basement apartment on College Avenue when the time for Wells Fargo neared. As the opening credits rolled, the music played, and Dale Robertson's face appeared, Mama said, "Ah, there's my man."

Daddy turned the TV off.
