The others noticed the stranger as he walked over to the bar, ordered a beer, then proceeded to enjoy it. The man paid for his drink and started out the door. It was not a second after he walked out, he walked right back into the bar.
The cowboy pulled his pistol out, shot one round into the air and exclaimed, “Alright you son’s of bitches! One of you knows someone that has stolen my horse! Now I’m gonna tell you what I am going to do! I will sit down at this bar and order one more beer, by the time I get done I better see my horse tied up out there, or I’m gonna have to do what I done in Texas, and I DON”T WANT TO DO WHAT I DONE IN TEXAS!!!”
The cowboy sat down just as before and enjoyed his beer once again. Maybe ten minutes passed and the cowboy got up once again and walked out the door.
Nothing happened. The bartender ran out the door to see the man riding away on his horse. He ran after and yelled, “Hey mister! We got to know! What is it you done in Texas?”
The cowboy replied, “I had to walk home.”
