Breathtakingly Magical and Mystical... and Billy the Kid

Billy the Kid is looking Old West dapper.

Sunday into Monday meows, my darling Big Cats... the tame prairie, home of the Tomatoes Gone Wild... sorta... the Kougaress discovered about ten rebel tomato plants in various stages of growth... from tiny to a couple of feet with beginning blooms... yowlsa, it’s late in the season, that is, if you’re a regular gardener type... with the cool spring, and no sign of any gone-wild tomatoes, this Big Cat had given up on her last year’s rebels seeding any new plants... well, she was wrong... and, hopefully! There will be tomatoes.

Breathtakingly Magical and Mystical ... in the deep darkness after midnight, when there was nary a light source, and the sky was overcast, the few fireflies out and about looked like glowing ephemeral beings... their slow beckoning flashes of fairy-brilliant light held this Big Cat in utter was another world, one that was breathtakingly magical and mystical.

Billy the Kid image sells for more than $2M

By COLLEEN SLEVIN, Associated Press – Sun Jun 26, 12:57 am ET

DENVER – What is believed to be the only surviving, authenticated portrait of Billy the Kid went up for auction in Denver and sold for more than $2.3 million.

The tintype on Saturday evening went to private collector William Koch at Brian Lebel's 22nd Annual Old West Show & Auction, where auction spokeswoman Melissa McCracken said the image of the 1800s outlaw was the most expensive piece ever sold at the event

A 15 percent fee was tacked on to the bidding price, making selling price more than $2.6 million.

Organizers had expected it could fetch between $300,000 and $400,000.

The tintype is believed to have been taken in 1879 or 1880 in Fort Sumner, N.M. It shows Kid standing with his hand resting on a Winchester carbine on his right side and a Colt revolver holstered on his left side.
