The last Stand
The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral was a 30-second shootout between lawmen and members of a loosely organized group of outlaws called the Cowboys that took place at about 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26, 1881, in Tombstone, Arizona Territory.
It is generally regarded as the most famous shootout in the history of the American Wild West. The gunfight was the result of a long-simmering feud, with Cowboys Billy Claiborne, Ike and Billy Clanton, and Tom and Frank McLaury on one side and town Marshal Virgil Earp, Special Policeman Morgan Earp, Special Policeman Wyatt Earp, and temporary policeman Doc Holliday on the other side. Billy Clanton and both McLaury brothers were killed. Ike Clanton, Billy Claiborne, and Wes Fuller ran from the fight. Virgil, Morgan, and Doc Holliday were wounded, but Wyatt Earp was unharmed.
As you all may or may not know, I haven’t been “in the economic saddle” much lately because of my wife’s Surgery and follow ups. It’s been a rough couple weeks and I’ve had to spend a lot of time helping her. Things will get “right” again, it’s just a matter of time.
In fact, great strides were made just today, as her “drains” were removed and for the first time in a week, she can take a full shower instead of a sponge bath. For the past week, I’ve been the “drain maintenance” guy, the sponge bath guy, and the “make a poncho out of a garbage bag” guy so she could wash her hair in the sink. So, today was a stunning success!
