As ancient as I feel when there’s moisture in the air, I wasn’t (and I imagine many of you weren’t) around for the golden age of the TV Western. Sure, we had Walker, Texas Ranger to call our own, but The Lone Ranger? Roy Rogers? Rawhide? Forget about it. Now, some people may find it silly to be nostalgic for television (be it a program or an era), but hey, one can’t predict from where one’s inspiration will come, right? Also, this makes me feel much better about my Designing Women/Murphy Brown sleeve.
