Don’t be a victim on vacation

With the Fourth of July behind us family vacations are kicking into high gear. Remembering my childhood growing up in Phoenix, Arizona, my brother and I would always get excited when summer vacation time rolled around. My Dad worked for the City of Phoenix and my mom was a stay-at-home mom. Our family took a one-week summer vacation every year and boy, did my brother and I look forward to it. I remember great family vacations to places like Disneyland in California, the Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, the Painted Desert and Tombstone Arizona - yes Tombstone, the best vacation a 9-year-old cowboy could ever have. Why? On October 26, 1881, the most famous gunfight of the American Old West took place in Tombstone at a place called the O.K. Corral and I was vacationing there. I had my cowboy hat and a pair of double holstered cap guns strapped on, ready for trouble and walking the same streets as Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday once did. Wow, what a great vacation for a kid!
