Blogger is scaring me


mr_ed:  Blogger sure took a long time loading a new page to edit! We're keeping all 84 fingers and toes crossed here.

Last hour's trivia answer:
Vance D. Brand, born in Longmont (Boulder County) 1931;
Malcolm Scott Carpenter, born in Boulder (Boulder County) 1925;
Stuart Allen Roosa, born in Durango (La Plata County) 1933 (d. 1994); and
John Leonard "Jack" Swigert,Jr., born in Loveland (Larimer County) 1931 (d. 1982).

If I remember, all attended the University of Colorado (Go Buffs!) at one time or another.

This hour's trivia question:  This man came West due to his "consumption" (tuberculosis), became a famous gunslinger, and died in Colorado ... from consumption. What's his name?

Next hour's trivia category:  Sports!

fine print:  Each household is limited to three prizes total.

Doc Holliday.

Whassup, Doc?

BTW: my Human went to the University of Missouri and everytime she hears mention of the U of Colorado she remembers the Buffs beating the Tigers when they got a 5th down. My Human needs to let it go!

Oh, our guess is Doc Holiday! When our mom was a kid, her family visited his grave and watched a gunfight show.
