Butch Cassidy - but no Sundance Kid

While Lacey was working tonight, Mom and I took a little drive down to Meeteetse. It is a cute litte town in the middle of nowhere, Wyoming. A few things they are famous for: they found black ferrets near town a few years ago, when the world thought they were extinct. Thank goodness we still have black ferrets in the world. Another item is that Butch Cassidy used to hang out here in his younger days. He was arrested in Meeteetse too. The only time he went to jail was when he lived here. So we had a burger in the old saloon where they nabbed him. Pretty neat if you are into Butch Cassidy. Mom saw a picture of him and said he didnt look like Butch Cassidy. "Paul Newman only played Butch Cassidy, Mom!" He didn't really look like him. We liked the Sundance Kid (Redford) too, but I don't think he ever set foot in Meeteetse.

Black ferrets huh? I have never even heard of them. But now that I know they exist, it really makes that town stand out in my mind.
