I love college football and, with it being Saturday, I plopped myself in front of the TV and was a couch potato all day. It has been years since I have done this, and it was nice getting my “fix” of football.
We did try to contact Allison’s parents and will be driving over to Surprise, Arizona tomorrow to visit them. Allison is our daughter-in-law and our son’s, David Paul, wife.
We also tried to hook up with my cousin, Ken and his wife, Karen. We discovered that they are now visiting friends in Scottsdale, which is near where we are at. We have been playing phone tag, so we will continue to try tomorrow.
Since we did not do much today, I will just post some more of the photos I took which exploring Tombstone earlier this week.
The Bird Cage Theater survived the various fires that distroyed most of the original buildings of Tombstone. It was an unusually place as it combined theatrical productions with gambling and prostitution. The photos below show the boxes that were actually prostitute cribs where the ladies of the evening would service their clients. The theater obtained its name from these “birdcages”.
There was a continuous poker game that lasted over 8 years, going 24/7, down in the basement.
The theater’s clients enjoyed a rip-roaring time and would fire off their six shooters into the air to express their enjoyment or displeasure. There are over 47 bullet holes in the ceiling and walls. Here are a few of them.
I have also posted photos of the famous people who performed here in the early 1880s.
