Treasure in the Attic: Roy Rogers auction stirs thoughts of childhood

The Marietta Times

As a kid growing up on Ravenswood Pike in Ripley, W.Va., in the early 1950s, I remember every Saturday morning just like clock work turning on our old floor model black and white TV and watching Roy Rogers "King of the Cowboys." I wouldn't dare miss watching the show for anything in the world, and if I had an extra 15 cents in my pocket from not eating lunch at grade school I would happily get out the old galvenized wash tub take a bath on a saturday afternoon and head over to the Alpine Theatre in Ripley with my twin brother Gary tagging along to watch Roy Rogers and Dale Evan's once again on the silver screen.
