This saloon is in Texas? When was it moved to Texas? I always kinda thought it might be in Kansas--possibly Colorado.

And don't take that shootin' personal. We all pretty much shoot each other all the time here, 'ceptin fer the women folk. They beat us down with cold, hard stares.

There you go, Haggis. I don't forget much I see. As long as I got my eyes open, that is.

Yeah, I always thought we was either in Dodge City or Tombstone or somewhere like that. A classic western town. Maybe one that had cattle drives running through it.

I know this won't be popular for eighty, or so years, but I've always wanted to do this.

Just the facts, ma'am.

I didn't think anyone lived in Texas back then. Too hot!

I still choose Dodge City. That conjures up all sorts of cool western fantasies.

Speaking of which, since it's 1876 now, was it 1874 when we started this thread?
