Who knew spending Thanksgiving with strangers could be such a dynamic experience! Sure being away from family on holidays is always a little sad…or at least it is for us (I know some would do anything to get away from the in-laws). The key to having a successful out of town Holiday is all about finding someone to spend it with. Maybe it’s friends or as in our case, the couple we met at the College Bar last week. We never turn down an invitation to a party!
It always feels a bit dicey each time I visit a place I have always wanted to see. I build up all kinds of expectations (even thought I try hard not to). Now, Tombstone Arizona hasn’t exactly been on the top of my list, but growing up watching old western’s does spark a good bit of curiosity. Tombstone was one of the last boomtowns of the west in the 1800’s. Silver, silver, and more silver produced $40 to $85 million in cold hard cash! Can you imagine that amount in the 1800’s? It’s like hittin’ the big one on every state lottery combined!
