The ghostly civil war soldiers of Patterson Road, Houston; the groaning Enchanted Rock, said to be genuinely magical; Pecos Bill with his coyote family, his rattlesnake Shake (that served as his lasso) and his true love the catfish-riding Slue-Foot Sue (Neil Armstrong may have been the first MAN to set FOOT on the moon but Sue banged her HEAD on it many years earlier, after being thrown by Bill's appropriately named horse, Widow-Maker); the spectral cowboys who, in the hours before dawn, walk in the courtyard of the Y.O.
