Two points of interest for October 26

It’s my birthday.

It’s also the anniversary of the gunfight at the OK Corral.

One other point of interest: From Wikipedia — so take it for what it’s worth — Doc Holliday’s last words came after asking for some whiskey:

As he lay dying, Holliday allegedly asked for a drink of whiskey. Amused, he looked at his bootless feet as he died — no one ever thought that he would die in bed, with his boots off. His reputed last words were, “Well I’ll be damned. This is funny.” John Henry “Doc” Holliday died November 8, 1887. He was 36.

I’ve outlived Doc Holliday by 3 years, so I’ll be hoisting a glass of whiskey in honor of the gunslinger tonight.
