Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier

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.

    It seems he keeps good company. That appears to be the Pope on the stand. I had no idea he was born on a mountaintop in Tennessee.

    The pope had a prior engagement. What you see is actually an Oriental statuary. Quite ugly and it gave me the creeps when I was growing up. If I remember correctly there were two of them. They were eventually replaced by lamps made by Mom during her ceramics phase. One lamp base was Tom Sawyer, the other Becky Thatcher (no kin to Margaret for those of you not versed in Southern Litterchure).

    I always thought it was ugly too and that type decor still does very little for me! Thank goodness for Ev’s ceramics phase.
