“The Waltzing Bandit? That’s a stupid name for a crook. Did he really steal gold or did he dance for it?”
My best friend Ricky Delgado had a point. It was a stupid name. My mother, the history buff, had been the one to tell me about this Waltzing Bandit.
“She just made it up to send us on a wild goose chase,” Ricky replied, “to get us out of her hair.”
Is that what my mother had done, or was she telling us the truth? Read about it (here).
