OK, this particular morning, i woke up, thinking about my great grandmother. I used to love talking to her, she had so many story's to tell. She was an Indian from Zacatecas, she got married at a real young age. I believe she was 13, when she got married, to my much older great grandfather, they had 13 children together. She was born in 1894, and died in 1989. Anyway..... she would always tell me story's of Pancho Villa, on how Pancho Villa, would go to different villages and kidnap all the pretty young ladys. She told me one time her mother had to hide her under the bed, so Pacho Villa, wouldnt kidnap her. As i grew up, i would talk to the older people on my block and to my friends great grandmothers and grandfathers, and it seemed, that all of them at 1 point in their lives, had an encounter with Pancho Villa. Do any of you ["city-data'ers"] have any storys similar to this, i know all my friends granparents and great grandparents had encountes with pancho at one time or the other.
