On Canarian Safari

Robbie The Tour Guide: 40 years ago I used to be a cowboy at the Gran Canarian Sioux City. I was shot and hung four times a day!

Dylan: How did you survive?

Robbie: We shot blanks – there were no pointy ends on the bullets, just the powder to make them go ‘bang!’.

Dylan: Did they just bounce off you then?

Robbie: They didn’t go anywhere, they just made the noise. And when I was hanged, I wore a parachute harness under my jacket – with a hook at the top.

Dylan: Did YOU have a gun?

Robbie: Yes – it was a real gun. I had to leave it behind, with my horse at the end of each day.

Dylan: What did the horse do with it?

Robbie: The horse went into the stables and I left the gun with my colleague, the sheriff. We were enemies during the day, but we were friends at the end of the day.

[Dylan looks perplexed]

Mum: He was acting, Dylan. It was his job to act – in a show about cowboys.

Dylan: Oh!
