Happy Birthday!

Phoebe ANNIE OAKLEY Mosee

born 8/13/1860
(d1926)

An Annie Oakley Pass is not some passable cut through the mountains such as the anthropophagously notable Donner Pass. (See 10/23.) Rather, it is a free ticket or pass to a show. Seems to be an association of the punched ticket with one of her bullet-riddled targets. As a matter of fact, this was on today's cross-word puzzle. (in year 2000) See how good Folk trivia cn du fer yu?]

Most of the books dealing with female warriors, especially transvestite ones, are British & tend to ignore the frontiers-persons of the American West. Belle Starr, Annie Oakley, Wyatt Earp's S.O, Josephine "Sadie" Marcus (1861-12/20/1944) - tough ladies you wouldn't want much to mess with. We made much of them & told the real & tall tales, but we didn't do much with traditional songs about them.

Still:
         I'm quick on the trigger with targets not much bigger than a pinpoint
        I'm number one, but my score with a feller
        Is lower than a celler, oh you can't get a man with a gun.

                from "Annie Get Your Gun" by Irv Berlin
