Weekly Photo Challenge: Admiration

My admiration goes out to millions of people over countless millennia. 

Who??  What Is she talking about!?

Who and what I’m talking about is everyone who has ever ventured into the unknown.  From the prehistoric peoples who packed up and moved to unknown lands to the explorers of several hundred years ago to astronauts.  Jacque Cousteau is in there also, of course.  And then there are the inventors and scientists like Madame Curie, Tesla, Algoritmi and the father of peanut butter….George Washington Carver.  No I didn’t forget Edison and Alexander Graham Bell.

Wandering Iris Tuesday Pik – Billy The Kid – Lincoln, New Mexico

The town of Lincoln, New Mexico was home to Billy the Kid for a while.  Billy worked as a cowhand at a ranch near town which belonged to Henry Tunstall.  The largest building in town is the Courthouse which was also a General Store in Billy’s time.  Billy was arrested for killing the sheriff and instead of keeping him in the town jail he was kept in chains in a room upstairs, guarded by two deputies.  Billy shot both deputies and escaped.
