Will this unrepentant villain pay for his crimes?

    1. LOL. Think again!! Joanne was the prosecuting attorney....and she won her case!! He paid for his crimes. But, of course, he was back to do it all over again the next day :-))

  4. From his face expression, probably with God's mercy, he is going to escape! LOL

  5. Maybe he should plead for mercy...sometimes life hangs in the balance because we come close to hanging ourselves by what we do or fail to do.

    1. It was an interesting (and amusing) little play. Two members of the audience played the prosecuting and defending attorneys. They had to put forward their cases and then the judgement was given. In this particular instance the prosecutor won the case.

  6. I don't think that's a smile...looks more like a grimmace.....but it doesn't matter because this is an excellent post. Should he survive, he can tell everyone he played 'hangman' and he was the star!

    1. Despite being found guilty and hanging for his crimes, he still survived to play it again....and again....and again. LOL.

    1. This was taken at a place called Bonnie Springs, in Nevada. They have a re-enactment in a 'Western' town, including a 'melo-drama' in the saloon, a gunfight, and then a hanging party. After the bad guy is arrested, they get two members of the audience to act as defense and prosecutor, plead the case, then the audience vote. Joanne was actually the prosecutor this time, and won her case!!! LOL.
