There's a tiny rural farming town that I visited last weekend with roads outside town that sound like our boys would be right at home there. They're actually all named after local families - makes you wonder. They are, all in a row: Swindle, Crook, Gamble, and Hood. Isn't that great? Plot bunnies abound!

There are some fantastic place names over there. There is a Kidnapper's Lane in Cheltenham, which is a glorious old Regency town. I've never been able to find out how it got it's name though. Maybe baby goats used to sleep there?

That's an amazing real place name, MAP. Somehow, I have a feeling the explanation for Kidknapper's Lane is far more colorful than the ones I cited, which are simply accidental names.

A friend of mine is in a band that is playing a gig called "Music to rob trains by." What music would you like to see the boys robbing trains by?

Not really sure I'd actually want them to rob trains to the music, but 2 songs immediately sprang to mind: "Wanted Dead or Alive" and "Blaze of Glory" by BonJovi.

Have to think on it a little more...

LOL Hunkeydorey.  Love your choice!

Generally, though, I agree with Stepha3nie, and she named two of my favorite songs.  However, if music were in the background, I'd also throw "Bad Company" and "Renegade" into the mix.

On Prairie Home Companion this weekend they had a good outlaw funny. It was about a cowboy who went around in a paper shirt, vest, and pants. They got him for rustling.

OK, maybe good is too strong a word for it. Dusty and Lefty are certainly not quite like our boys. Today Dusty was trying to get a job in marketing. Didn't work. But his partner got an intern to work toward replacing him, anyhow. Can you see a Devil's Hole intern?

I guess Wheat might have perceived Heyes as a sort of pesky intern at first...
And they definitely could use someone to help with Public Relations...

I just looked up some old newspaper articles about my late mother. I found one from when she was ten years old, in 1934, saying that she had spent a week in Comanche, Texas visiting with a friend. Can you imagine such a social notice in any newspaper now? I actually remember Mother's story about that visit - the two girls went to a ranch rodeo together. Can you imagine social notices in the newspaper about the boys, under aliases or not? Such a thing could put a real scare into an outlaw!

Sheesh, HW. That could indeed have been scary for the boys. On second thought, it could have saved them a lot of money for telegraphs to Lom... He would just have had to let the law community know to keep an eye out for mention of Smith & Jones in the social notice sections.
But the article also shows how much more common traveling has become. And it reminds me that it was always big news in our local paper when people went on visits to our twinned towns (or when people from there came to visit).

Social notices still exist for the upper classes in England in some periodicals. Needless to say, MAP's movements are only worthy of mention for their clumsiness. Banana

Did you folks see about the newly discovered picture that is supposed to show Billy the Kid and his gang playing croquet? Can you just imagine two rival gangs playing a croquet match? Somehow, I think our boys, with their hand-eye-coordination, would be pretty good at it. Does anyone know the game well enough to write a funny story?

Did you folks hear about the Danish robbers who dumped a safe into a lake only to have it just sit on the ice? Sounds familiar doesn't it?

It definitely does.  I wonder if there are bunnies in twisting things that happened in the series like this seems to do?

Sounds like an interesting book, Helen.

I'll have to check if it's available in the UK.
