Truly A Kid


Blog Posted:9/26/2012 6:25:00 PM

BILLY the Kid was truly a kid when found in the company of children.

Many children of his day would go on to say

how much they wished their playtime with him would never end.

Good Guy / Bad Guy were one of the games

that Billy would play with the children in town.

"Bang! Bang! You're dead Billy!"

Billy would then grab hold of his chest and comically fall down to the ground.

Salsa Bocca recalls her playtime spent with her playmate Billy Bonney.

"He used to bounce me on his knee for what seemed like hours,

as  if I were riding a pony."

The following story might not be true

but I'll still share it with you

because it certainly fits Billy's profile.

This young boy in dismay

kept following Billy all day.

Wherever Billy went he was followed by this star struck child.

"Do you know who I am?" Billy asked the young lad.

The child simply nodded, "Yes" was all that he said.

Billy took off his hat, dusted it off and placed it on the young boy's head.

The innocent young child was overjoyed and smiled

and then this is what Billy said and did.

"If anyone ever asks you who gave you that hat,

you tell them My Pal, Billy, the Kid."

Billy was also very respectful of the elderly

and very sympathetic towards they who were poor.

So many times he would extend acts of kindness towards them.

He was a true philanthropist at heart to be sure.

The newspapers portrayed him as this dangerous desperado,

someone to be hated and feared and appalled,

but to all of the residents of Fort Sumner, New Mexico

Billy was very fondly adored by all.

    Reminds me of that anonymous saying. (At least I don't know the author.) "There's so much good in the worst of us and so much bad in the best of us, it hardly behooves any of us to talk about the rest of us!"

    Hey a man with two guns and a horse - is he married? I like a man who can act like a kid, as opposed to one who is just childish.
