    Envelope detail from Leanin' Tree. Love those sepia tones.

      This is a rare photo of Roy and Dale because Dale's horse is not Buttermilk but a palimino named Pal. Dale occasionally rode Pal in the movies and referred to the horse on their radio show. However, when they went into television, it was felt that having two paliminos together on the small screen might somehow be confusing to the small fry. Therefore Buttermilk was purchased for Dale. It was also a lot more gentler horse because Dale, despite her Texas upbringing, was not a good horsewoman. She chose the name Buttermilk because it was her favorite drink
