DAD AND TEX By P.S. Joshi
Dad was an armchair cowboy: western books, movies, TV shows. We never missed a big western movie.
Dad hadn’t been to a stage show for years. I went to an occasional country and western stage show at the civic theatre in the city. I found out the stars ate at a nearby Chinese restaurant. One evening I took my parents to a show.
One of the performers that evening was big American movie, TV, stage, and singing star Tex Ritter. By chance, he sat near us in the restaurant. Dad was thrilled and kept turning around to look at Tex.
