When we were at the book sale last week, my mom found a Landmark book titled “Garibaldi.” I was holding it and looking at the picture when I noticed something interesting that I hadn’t noticed before. We already have this book, so I’m not sure why I never noticed. Maybe it’s because I never really looked at it. See if you catch it.
Let’s take a closer look.
Did you see it? It’s the lady. She’s riding horseback (sidesaddle too!), holding the baby, holding the reigns, and shooting a gun – at the same time! Oh, and might I add, looking cute doing it!
Now I find that impressive. Wouldn’t you like to do that? She’s got talent! She’s holding the baby and the reigns with the same hand/arm. You know how tired your arm gets holding a baby when you are just sitting – imagine holding the reigns, too.
I wonder if the book tells you how to manage a horse, a baby, and a gun simultaneously like that. I don’t think it does. If it did, though, it would be worth reading.
There’s one thing I am curious about – what does she do with the baby when he’s a toddler?
