i asked father who his favourite cowboy was (he was mine)
he said Tom Mix back in those days i loved cowboys with a
passion too big for a small girl but i did Mark the rifleman’s
son visited my room of an evening +when father took me to
meet him at maple leaf gardens i swooned +swanned around
Tom Mix and his horse rode the shadow range, punishing evil-doers.
But Tom never kissed the heroine. He seemed very much in love with
his horse. (Al Purdy 1993)
..daddy was way better looking than tom..
