A Christmas Welcome - 1996 Many elements of an earlier and simpler time survived in my boyhood hometown. Rustic scenes like A Christmas Welcome, where horses wait patiently at a split rail fence while their riders enjoy holiday festivities in a rustic stone cottage, are treasured memories. This painting is the seventh in my decade-long Christmas Cottage collection. — Thomas Kinkade
Annie Oakley (Gail Davis) Annie Oakley was a 30 minute western action series that aired in syndication. It was about a young woman who was 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighed only 95 pounds. Unlike most women of her day, she didn't get married, cook, clean and bear children. Annie could shoot, rope and ride with the best of 'em! Annie Oakley, her little brother Tagg and Sheriff Craig kept their little town of Diablo safe from wandering outlaws.
