FOR REAL


Posted by: Dan

ust thinkin OK corral time . I be Doc H with the Earp Bros. I like the Earps but like Doc Holliday did, I only agree to be deputised at the very end. Wyatt is Sheriff Sin, my old Chinese best pal. I was best man at his wedding. Morgan Earp is Dave Sweeny, my ex Mountie Canadian pal {that is RCMP to non=cop dudes], As Virgil Earp, my dead brother. Inspector Charles Docherty, bravest man I ever knew. Fortunately I was able to tell him how I felt about him a few days before he died. He said, 'Coming from you that means a lot.' I meant it.
Charlie would have played it by the book [police nickname Mr Persil]. Sheriff would have effortlessly wasted someone without getting a hair out of place and picked up his widow after collecting his winnings. Dave would have gunned down his cowboy after a 20 minute bareback chase. [sorry pal all the saddles are out] and then stripped him of all ID. Charlie would only talk after making a 25 page notebook entry and then just to say, 'Sign here'.
And me, Doc H? Sorry pal, I don't remember. Sic transit gloria mundi. Point is them cowboys never had a chance. Thank God International Women's year is over for another year.
Errh Sheriff, is it ok to hold 5 aces?
