Wild And Woolly [Oct. 14th, 2015|10:03 am]
Tony Grist
"Great news. They've found a new photograph of Billy the Kid. You'll never guess what he's doing. Give you three tries."

"Shooting his six gun?"

"No."

Riding his horse?"

"No,"

"Drinking in the saloon?"

"No, He's playing croquet."

"Croquet!"

"Very popular in the Old West. General Custer played it too. There's Billy, Tom O'Folliard, a woman who could be Sallie Chisum and some others-  and they look just like a bunch of Victorians...

Excellent. I hope it's true (i.e. a correct identification).

They say it is. There's been a lot of research. The place where the photograph was taken has been identified and it all stacks up.

Billy has bags of attitude- in a thuggish sort of a way.

That's wonderful! And if you put it in a novel, no one would believe it. :)

They will after this.

I'm hoping all future westerns will include not only the big show down but also the croquet scene.

Well exactly, but it's hard to see them that way- what with John Wayne and all...

Croquet, at least the way my friends play it, is NOT a nice and polite game. The whole POINT of it is to mess up all the rest of your friends and family, and, if you add in beer at the party, the presence of mallets does begin to pose a potential threat.

Plenty of people I know will screw over another player in PREFERENCE to moving their own ball forward.

That's very true. I've played croquet and- yes- it can get mean.
