My Version of The Apache Kid Story

 April 2, 2023

   Funny what a little push can do. Based on a rumor, I need to tell my version of this story before someone poaches it and ruins it. My version of the story deals with what really happened to the Apache Kid. Of course, I am not alone in this quest (see quote below).

Daily Whip Out:
"The Enigmatic Apache Kid"

   In my version a certain head hunter brings in his bounty to San Carlos.

Daily Whip Out: "San Carlos Bounty"

   The bounty hunter bagged his prey deep in the Sierra Madres, with the help of this guy.

Daily Whip Out: "Arizona Charlie"

   And this guy.

Daily Whip Out:
"Young James Young"

   All three of these intrepid scouts rode across the border and made their way up a blood-soaked trail.

Daily Whip Out: "A Long Trail of Death"

  Of course, it must be said, to this day, the same trail is littered with the carcasses of numerous failed screenplays.

"I met a tour manager for the band Genesis in Vienna years ago. When he found out I was from Arizona, we bonded over our respective failed attempts at screenplays of the Apache Kid story."
