In 1902 Owen Wister, a good friend of Theodore Roosevelt, wrote a novel set in the romantic American West called The Virginian. It grew in popularity over the years, was transformed into movie after movie, and served as the basis for the prolific 1962-1971 TV series.
Recently, near Toledo, Ohio, cast members of the show reunited for a charity benefit called Cowboy Up for Vets. A deserving military family will receive the funds raised. And everyone involved had a wonderful time, celebrating old and new friendships.
A mounted shooters group and singing cowboys provided plenty of entertainment.
