My Mom "The Gun Slinger"

I made a scrapbook a while back for my Mom's birthday. We spent a lot of time going through old pictures because we wanted the scrapbook to span her whole life. When we were growing up my Mom was always trying to get me and my sisters to wear dresses and "act like ladies". We just wanted to wear jeans and climb trees. Mom, why is it that every picture that we found of you as a child shows you sporting a cowgirl outfit complete with a gun belt and toy gun? Was that what ladies wore in the 50's? I am just asking...

I maybe your Mom's age or close (60) and I have a similar picture of myself in cowgirl garb. Little girls in that era escaped into the world of Sky King, the Lone Ranger and Hop-along Cassidy. Dress the part was a big deal. At least for me.
