    Cowboys of the Silver Screen

    When I was a kid, I wanted to twirl my six-guns, just like Roy Rogers and the other cowboys I watched on Saturday mornings. I never could. Then, about 10 years later, I was babysitting and putting the kids to bed, when I picked up the boy's toy gun without thinking, twirled it and in one smooth motion, stuck it in my holster (pocket) — and froze. Darn! Another skill that came too late.
