Smiley Burnette

Here is my Dad with Smiley Burnette (1911 - 1967). I'm not sure what year - Dad might remember the date and event. Burnette appeared in dozens of films - mostly westerns, usualy as comic relief. He also made recordings and appeared on television's "Petticoat Junction and "Green Acres" as the Cannonball's conductor Charley Pratt.

Smiley Burnette was in Flora, Illinois around 1951-52. We also have a picture of Him and my older brother Johnny when he was around three. Ruth Ann
