Okay, not really. Well, they really were robbed but I am sure that the culprits gave it back after the show. This weekend is Desperado Days, part of their Living History program.
Tonight they had the cowboy supper. Brisket supplied by Hutchin’s BBQ (yum!) and dutch oven cooked side dishes and desserts.
Two side stations served patrons various sides.
They even had pies and cobblers over by the blacksmith’s shop. The man at the dessert station said that it is easier to cook pies in a dutch oven than it looks and that they’ve taught the boy scouts how to do it. They looked so scrumptious!
Mustang Swing provided live music for the diners. They sounded great. I am never going to get “Miles and Miles of Texas” out of my head. (There was a fourth member I couldn’t get in the frame).
Everything was so nice and it was nice to see some real cowboys show up for the dinner too.
They were very friendly and roamed about and talked to the diners. But it wasn’t too long before they showed their true colors.
They were so bad! They robbed the Chestnut Square ticket desk and retired to the Two Bit Taylor House. When Newton and Fig showed up, I was hoping that one of them might be the sheriff.
Alas, they were not the good guys. They donned masks too and were chagrined to find that they had been beaten to the score.
Things went from bad to worse when Fig and Newton decided to confront the first outlaws.
Predictably, things didn’t go well. These types aren’t familiar with civil discourse. There is only one way to resolve an argument for these men.
Luckily, all four men are terrible shots and despite the raucous fury of their exchange, no one was harmed. In fact, after further discussion, they all ended up leaving together.
It’s my understanding that they are planning to return with a lot more of their friends tomorrow. (1:30 and 3:00). They didn’t exactly make any promises to behave. I’m off for the lake tomorrow so I won’t get to see if their other friends are more gentlemanly. You might want to leave your valuables at home.
