Fred Foy - the voice behind "Hi-yo, Silver - the Lone Ranger" died Wednesday of age-related causes - he was 89.
"A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty "Hi-yo, Silver" - the Lone Ranger! With his faithful companion, Tonto, the daring and resourceful masked rider of the plains led the fight for law and order in the early Western United States. Nowhere in the pages of history can one find a greater champion of justice.
Return now with us to those thrilling days of yesteryear. From out of the past come the thundering hoof-beats of the great horse Silver. The Lone Ranger rides again!"
And all this accompanied by the stirring strains of Rossini's "William Tell Overture".
I watched The Lone Ranger when growing up - it was one of my favorite shows.
My chickens are doing fine during this burry cold weather we've been having. It's a little tough to get water sometimes but Miss Minnie looks fat and sassy standing in the frozen goldfish pond. Dumpling joined her later.
Probably some good bugs and stuff hiding in the corners.
We're supposed to have some snow, maybe sleet, and rain today and then the possibility of more this weekend.
Completed in time for Christmas! A nice lap size quilt with Santas on the back.
I've been working on this quilt for some time and would go back and forth with how it should be quilted so it took a little longer to finish. I finally did stitching in the ditch on the rows and outlined around the trees.
I love all my ornaments - some I've had for years and years.
Lily decided to try to eat three of them - she did a pretty good job.
So the dog proofing gets set up again this year.
Styrofoam seems to be her choice - thank goodness these were not some of my really special ornaments - I think I got two of them at a gas station years ago for filling up the tank and the other was a crochet ornament but I have several more of those.
