When Butch Comes To Shove

Wild West Outlaw Could Have Had English In-Laws

American outlaw Butch Cassidy had Geordie heritage, according to newly discovered records. The leader of the Hole In The Wall gang had strong ties to the north-east of England as his mother, Ann Gillies, lived in Brandling Village, in Newcastle, before migrating to New York.

FOOTNOTE: Lordy, Geordie.

My brother and I actually met Paul Newman at the Hole in the wall camp when my brother donate 200 trophies for the kids. Now those eyes are something you don't forget.

Another groaner; this time, it's the title! :) If your children are only half as witty/clever as you, the world is in for a grand time!

Trust the English to be involved with outlaws(not to mention in laws!) We can be a wild bunch.
