It's been too many years since we looked in on Tex and Rosie and high time we did so again. To those dear readers unfamiliar with this romantic Old-West couple, I recommend clicking on their blue names in the previous sentence before proceeding.
Francis: You will never be a good singing cowboy!
Tex: How would you know?
Francis: Because I am a psychic.
Tex: I know that. Well, we're here, and that's my darlin' Rosie steppin' outta the schoolhouse.
Rosie: Tex! You've been gone for years! Where have you been?
Tex: Still trackin' the Driscoll Gang. You wouldn't believe how many people are named Driscoll in this country.
Rosie: And who's your friend?
Tex: Danged if I know. People call him Pancho; other people call him Cisco...
Francis: My name is Francis, senorita.
Rosie: Tex, Pancho and Cisco are both nicknames for Francis.
Tex: Well, I just call him Sidekick. He was recommended by a barkeep in Abilene. I asked where I could find a good sidekick t'help me round up all the Driscolls and the barkeep sent me next door. There was a sign, said, "Gifted Francisco, Psychic", and I reckoned it close enough no matter how they spelled it.
Rosie: It can make a difference, Tex. What did your parents name you before you before you got stuck with "Tex"?
Tex (thinks hard for a while): Henry! I believe my name is Henry!
Rosie: Might there also be some confusion between "sidekick" and "psychic"?
Francis: Excuse him, Senorita Rosie. He needs me to foresee his future mistakes --of which there are many.
Rosie: Very well, but...but Tex, Henry, O Henry, couldn't you change your career to something safer? You've had so many adventures. Perhaps I could help you become a writer!
Francis: Yes, I see it growing more and more probable! The knight without armor, "The Caballero's Way"! Tell him!
Rosie: My poor Tex, O Henry, confused all this time by sidekick and Psychic.
Francis (riding off at a gallop down Main Street): ¡Ándale, Loco, let's went!
And in the distance the image divides into two riders who shout, "Oh Pancho!" and "Oh Cisco!" and, if your hearing is very good, "O. Henry!", followed by rapid hoof-beats and laughter.
