Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Once they heard - don't ask, it's too complicated - that Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane were in residence, the members of Shottstown Ladies Quick-Draw Club turned up in a Charabanc for one of their outings, much to the pleasure of my Aunties and the dismay of Tavish, who cursed himself for not slapping a DND Notice on the country's newspapers, but when he found out that the source was entirely other, he gracefully relented and like a bear leader ushered his acolytes into the garden, where they quickly established a desire line across the lawn I had imperfectly mown yesterday, to congregate with their heroes, or two of them at least, and Wild Bill welcomed them as confrere's happy to dispense his wisdom and listen to their views, while Calamity, on the other hand, took one look at the septenary of "wimmin dressed as cowpokes!" and, pleading a headache, took herself over to the other, more shaded, corner and glowered at them, from beneath her stetson: "ah'd like to shoot their stoopid grins off, an their flutterin lashes, and their inflated bahookies n bahoomies!" she turned to me: "what's he see in them, apart from their buttons near poppin an their stitchin strained fit to bustin?"
