Growing up in the 60's I watched a lot of westerns, shows like Roy Rogers and The Lone Ranger. I credit such shows with leading me into a career in law enforcement. After a full career as a State Trooper I believe I have a sense of what it must have been like in those cattle towns and mining camps. Now in retirement, I have the time to really study the men and women of that long past period in America history known as the " Old West". Plus, I get to hang out with like-minded folks and relive those days of yesteryear. Life doesn't get any better then that.
