Living In Harmony!

    What’s all this about a Manor House in The Village? Just because it’s printed on a poster doesn’t necessarily mean its there! Be a bit disappointing though, for those wanting to attend the exhibition of mime and entertainment to be held in the grounds of the Manor House, if it doesn’t exist, don’t you think?
    So if it’s an “out of The Village” experience you’re looking for, how about
Living In Harmony stranger, an American frontier town in the 1800’s?!
    As a general rule, they do say that a murderer always returns to the scene of his crime. But I don’t know the ruling on a murderer returning to the scene before the crime has actually been committed! So it may be wondered what they would say in this particular instance. Yes an act of murder was committed in the Silver Dollar Saloon, the perpetrator was the Kid a psychotic gunslinger, the victim Cathy a saloon girl who was strangled to death. But the murder never physically took place, it wasn’t real, although to Cathy it might have seemed perfectly real at the time. Because some time later, Number 22 {Cathy} returned to the scene where she had been strangled to death by the Kid {Number 8} in the Silver Dollar Saloon. But Number 8 {the Kid} was already there waiting for her, such was his obsession with Cathy that he carried out the murder for real, and strangled Number 22 to death with his bare hands.
   “Well stranger, fancy living In Harmony?” That’s a reference to the episode ‘Living In Harmony,’ but it’s what the committee, and the citizens wanted Number 6 to do in ‘A change of Mind.’ The citizens of The Village are sheep, and Number 6 a goat. When a goat comes amid sheep things generally happen, meaning there is always trouble. Number 6 was brought before the committee for seemingly to attack two citizens in the woods, but that was a set up. All Number 6 was doing was to mind his own business. And yet having his own private gymnasium in the woods, preferring that to the gym in the Recreation Hall, could itself be seen as anti-social. Number 6 doesn’t want to live in harmony, so he was posted as being unmutual, and the citizens will have nothing to do with him. Because they are socially conscious citizens and are provoked by the loathsome presence of an unmutual! The citizens are misguided, and manipulated sheep! As soon as they are fooled into thinking that Number 6 has undergone the operation known as Instants Social Conversion they welcome him back into the fold. Living in harmony that’s not for Number 6, he’s unconventional, an eccentric, and should probably be living in that cave just outside The Village, once called The Therapy Zone. He could have become the “Wiseman.” Citizens looking for help would go to him, and he would offer words of advice. And in exchange they would bring him food to sustain him. I can see him now, with long matted hair and a long beard, wearing his dirty, tatty threadbare piped blazer. Would Number 2 have allowed Number 6 to live the life of a hermit? Perhaps, had Number 6 told them what they wanted to know. But Number 6 is wiser than that, if he had told them what they wanted to know, he might not have been of any further importance, and thereby no longer the centre of attention!
   When it comes to sheep, there’s nothing to choose between the citizens of The Village ruled over by a manipulative Number 2, and the

townspeople of Harmony who are ruled over by a bad Judge! That’s because they are one and the same, and Harmony is sub-joined to The Village, if not physically attached!
   I like the “Wanted Bills” for Tom Nixon. Jesse James. Sam and Belle Star seen on the walls in the Silver Dollar Saloon, together with framed photographs of “Buffalo” Bill Cody, Annie Oakley, and actress Lillie Langtry, the “Jersey lily,” who became an American citizen in 1897, who was a one time favourite of King Edward the 7th as well as Judge Roy Bean who was an eccentric U.S. saloon-keeper and Justice of the Peace in Val Verde County, Texas, who called himself "The Law West of the Pecos"

Be seeing you
