    Huck Fellani was a product of the era. As westward expansion took hold in the first half of the 19th century, Fellani, accompanied by his wife and two sons, headed west in search of opportunities, spurred by dreams of grandeur.

    Huck reached Arizona, settled and opened up a pawn shop with a man from Lexington he met on his travels. His pawn shop was the first of its kind in the region.

    One Wednesday morning, Hank woke up to shattered glass. A brick was tossed through the front window of his establishment. A note, tied to the brick read: "blanco out." That night would be his last.

    Reports indicate that natives surrounded the shopkeeper's establishment, ordered him outside and put 573 arrows into his body.

    As he lay dying, he uttered his last words...

    It wasnt all that surprising then, being the brutish individual he was, that Huck wanted to tell off his killers before he passed.

    "You M(gurgle)aaaaa."

    Motherfuckers indeed, Huck. Motherfuckers, indeed.

    Yuma, AZ is a city in America (Wikipedia).

    Angels/Padres spring training. Ah, the memories. Benito Santiago's autograph still sits in my attic.
