Happy Valentine’s Day Birthday Arizona. I know it’s Valentine’s Day today, and I think I’ll go look for some cute girls to get some loves from – but my person told me it’s also Arizona’s birthday. She says it’s Arizona’s hundredth birthday – something called a Centennial.
Okay person, I don’t know what centennial means but if you’re asking, I don’t have ten cents to give you. Maybe you should increase my allowance – at least give me more doggie treats.
My person has been really busy on her computer the last few days and not paying much attention to me. Okay, she did stop and take me out on my trails. She says she was working on a presentation for her church on the Christian history of Arizona because it’s the Centennial. Person, I told you I don’t have any money.
She told me about this town named Tombstone that she learned some new things about. Have you heard of Tombstone? It’s kind of famous but I’ve never been there. My person says she and my younger person have – before they got me. My person says they’ve made lots of movies about Tombstone. Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday lived there, and that’s where they had the shootout at the OK Corral.
Person, is this an animal story? Why are you telling me this?
Horses? They had horses? Okay. I guess that’s good enough.
My person says Tombstone had lots of miners, cowboys, and gunslingers, – and horses, but they had something else too. She says the very first Protestant church in Arizona was built there.
Person, wouldn’t all those tough guys beat up the church people?
Really? My person says the priest who oversaw the building of the church was a boxer and nobody wanted to mess with him.
What??? You mean that church was started by a dog!!!?
