'THE AMERICAN ADVENTURE' (1991 - 1997)
|(Please allow time for photo's to load] |
The mock town of 'Silver City', was where 'Johhny Ringo and his Hole in the Head Gang', came to rob the bank at least three times a day
The fastest gun in town.....
This was Sheriff Rex Roper, who kept the peace in 'Silver City'. Why he rounded up that gang, and put it's leader in his jail. They just wouldn't listen to reason, that good always wins over bad, and his shoot - outs were the highlight of their visit.
In the Saloon, there was 'Lil'...
|The heart of 'Silver City' was 'Lazy Lil's Saloon'. Here's the beautiful 'Diamond Lil', she was such a darn lovely filly, that all the cowboys stayed in there all day, watching here sing while the girls danced.

Watching from above.....
Then there was this fella that kept in the shadows; we thought he fancied Lil, because when she was on stage, well he never stopped talking about her! He kept on telling everybody what she was going to sing next. He was with the band that played behind the curtain, but sometimes he sang as well. They called him Chris Andrews.
Good and Bad.....
|This is Miss Shelley, well you can see how she treats the kids; I wondered if she treated her men like that too!|
She was a great horse rider, and on occasions she drove the stagecoach.

Who's the Dippy?
Shucks folks, this is 'Dippy', this senseless half-wit kept on getting himself blown up,whenever they robbed the Bank!
Anyhow, he sure attracted the gals at 'Lazy Lil's' Saloon; like bee's round a jam - pot.
