Happy Trails – Friday Fictioneers

Good Wednesday morning, my peeps!  It is time for another round of Friday Fictioneers, brought to you by our faithful leader Rochelle, who is, as we speak, on her way to Israel for a humanitarian endeavour with her cousin, Kent.  Happy trails to you both!!  And thank you to Jean L. Hayes for donating your picture.

I admit, I was completely corny this week.  How could I not be?  I mean, my name is Dale and my last name is Rogerson (a mere two letters off from Roy’s) and this picture just sang to me.  Apologies.  Next week I’ll be way more serious.  Buahahaha!  Sorry, no guarantees on that…

Now, if you can come up with a good story for this picture, please do and add your link by clicking on the blue frog below.  Not sure how, just click on Rochelle’s name above for the how-to’s.  Easy-peasy.  Now, forgive me 😉

Happy Trails

“Happy traiiiils, toooo youu, until we meet again!

Happy traiiiils to youuu, keep smiling until then!”

“Are you gonna sing that bloody song during the whole friggen ride?”

“You don’t like?  Seems rather appropriate as we ride our horses across this land.  This was a great idea for an activity, by the way.  It’s been ages since I rode a horse.”

“I doubt our trail leader is enjoying your nonsense, Roy.”

“You know what, Dale?  It sounds a lot better as a duet…

Who cares about the clouds when we’re togeeeeether?”
“Just sing a song, and bring the sunny weeeeeeaather!”

  1. Love your take, Dale. Though I confess, I had to listen to the song to get the full drift. Thanks for providing that. Full thoughtful of you. Big smiles. As big as the Big Country.

  2. I guess I am stupid… I had a cousin, who unfortunately passed away in the early 1980s, who was named Roy Dale (yes, southern, so everyone called him “Roy Dale”, not just “Roy”). I never once thought that he might have been named for Roy Rodgers and Dale Evans until today! Thanks 🙂

  3. Aw, Dale, you made me smile at this one. It brings back memories of a more gentle and kinder time where there were more smiles and happy trails. And as for you….serious??? Well I’m not putting my money on that horse. Lol.

  4. Happy Trails, Dale, to back when I was a teen and went to the movies every Saturday afternoon. I grew up with Dale Evans and Roy Rogers – as well as Gene Autry and The Perils of Pauline serial episodes .Love what you’ve done with this prompt.

  5. Dear Dale,

    Roy Rogers and Dale Evans seemed like lovely genuine people. Seems only fitting you should share the name. 😉 I feel all saddled up and ready to hit the trail. Love this.

    Shalom and lotsa hugs from Israel,

    • Dear Rochelle,

      They did, didn’t they? Kinda of funny I share part of both their names 😉 If you are ready, are you ready to sing, too? Tee hee.
      So very glad you enjoyed my little ride.

      Shalom and lotsa love and good wishes for your trip!



  6. Good story and memories, Dale. Like many kids in the 1950s, I used to watch the westerns on TV. I even read a book written by Dale. Roy was originally from my home state, Ohio. Well written. 🙂 — Suzanne
