Gabby Hays, Sans Beard

Baby Boomers like me spent many hours before their black and white TVs watching Western during our youth, which prompted a previous blog title, “My Heroes Were Cowboys.”

One of the best cowboy stars’ favorite sidekicks was Gabby Hays, whose appearance and voice made us love him.

What I had never seen before just now was a photo of him without his beard.

I doubt most people would recognize him without his characteristic beard shown in the last photo below.
