One of my more vivid memories , was in 1958 .
I was 10 , my Grandfather had rented a house in Lake Chapala , Mexico for a month .
My Folks, Sister and I went down for two weeks....
I recall I had a metal SAA cap firing gun that you could load a single BB ( it did not revolve) and the single cap would launch the BB.
I remember I'd  wear it and wander around and the local boys would follow me , some so young they did not wear pants ,
nothing but a T shirt ....
There was a local man that would rent his horses for my Sister and I to ride all over town and he'd follow (walking).
Once my Sister did not go, so he road with me where ever I rode around town.

I read of the Crime and abductions now and wonder how I ever survive  :o  that vacation

This was my aunt and cousin’s idea of babysitting me.  They worked the pony rides at a local amusement park in the summers.

Loved the smell of sweaty horse in the morning!!
