Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier

January 23, 2010

BigBroSteve, aka Davy Crockett, in the spring of 1957

Here’s Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier.  He’s really my big brother.  And he’s got a gun!  Just like the gun in yesterday’s post. 

I’m pretty sure that Davy Crockett carried a long rifle, or as my BabyBoy called it when he was the same age as Davy Crockett BigBroSteve, a long gun.  I wonder where BigBro stashed his rifle.  Probably wasn’t allowed to carry a rifle in the house so he had to resort to a hand gun.

According to my BigBroBob, Irma Jaques’s niece, Margaret Kaylor, gave the Davy Crockett outfit to BigBroSteve.  That Davy is one cute and happy kid.  He probably slept in those clothes.
