Carl’s rootin’ tootin’ shootin’ nights were back on course

Sunderland Echo - - Retro -

There looked like be­ing a show­down at the hoe­down when a crit­tur made off with cow­boy Carl Gip­pert’s gun.

But now things are darn tootin’ again down on the De­n­e­side ranch after the bad guy came clean and did the de­cent thing.

He re­turned the replica Colt 45 after Carl alerted the sher­iff ’s men down at the lo­cal po­lice sta­tion.

Carl who hails from the Sea­ham area, was wor­ried in case some young­ster who fan­cied him­self as Billy the Kid got hurt with the gun, which fires blanks.

It was taken at a County and Western Night at the Ge­orge Inn, De­n­e­side.

It hap­pened as Carl was danc­ing to the Nashville Edi­tion group.

Now that ev­ery­thing is fine and dandy once more, he is look­ing for­ward to a lot more rootin’ shootin’ nights, as more and more peo­ple put on their stet­sons and mosey down to the dance.

Hon­est In­jun, the cow­boy nights are get­ting more pop­u­lar in the town. Were you one of the peo­ple who went along to the reg­u­lar coun­try and western nights and what do you re­mem­ber of them. Or is there an­other mem­ory of Wear­side and County Durham you would pre­fer to share with us? It could be any­thing from your favourite pub to the depart­ment store you loved the most.
