Celebrate Fifty Years With THE VIRGINIAN
In Loving Memory
In loving Memory of James Drury (April 18, 1934- April 6, 2020)
We lost a true legend on Monday, April 6, 2020. His memory lives on in all who admired him.
The Heavens surely gained another hero. I know the horse tales must be very interesting as he meets his co-stars that got there before him. What a party it will be as he celebrates his 86th birthday April 18th.
In these sad times, it’s our memories that keep us sane. God bless everyone.
Remember the cowboy way when you think of James Drury. He lived it. He was an inspiration to everyone.
The Cowboy Way: If it’s not true, don’t say it. If it’s not yours, don’t take it; and if it’s not right, don’t do it. The Virginian
It seems like only yesterday the episodes were seen.
Cattle drove by cowboys, dusty trails and beans,
Blue horizons captured of the big Wyoming sky,
Shiloh brought excitement as an entertainment high.
Branding out a memory for decades yet to come,
Young and old took values from every single one.
The tale evolved around a handsome foreman’s trust,
And knowing not his name did not discourage us.
The mystery brought excitement waiting to be found,
The Virginian’s act of courage surely won his crown,
With cattle by the hundreds and the cowhand's brutal pride,
The magic sought for westerns was more than satisfied.
Gone, but not forgotten as the show went off the air,
Reruns reunite the fans with memories still there.
The golden anniversary of The Virginian will be,
A celebration of many friends, just like you and me.
