Going to Tombstone this morning. It's a long run, four hours each way, but it's important enough to me to make the trip. I'm also printing out labels for the 250 140th Anniversary of the O.K. Corral Gunfight special Bozecards that are hopefully going to have a Tombstone postmark with the actual date of the gunfight on them. Had to buy a special Dymo Label Writer 550 Turbo Printer to get the job done, but it is a problem loading the software app, and we couldn't get the software to recognize my computer, so I emailed all the names and addresses and plan on writing them by hand on the trip down. I have hired a local videographer, Bill Watters, to shoot today's historic talk and he will drive while I do the cards.
We're taking along a drone so that should be fun
Special thanks to Garrett Roberts for the image. And speaking of images that are too good to be true. Thanks to Gold Lady (real name Lauren K.) this photo which I posted the other day, is fake.
My talk in the corral today will be basically this: in the last 140 years what has changed and what have we learned? The short answer is, at least for me: everything.
"Wyatt Earp matters because of what he means, not for who he really was."
"They say such nice things about people at their funerals that it makes me sad that I'm going to miss mine by just a few days."
