the story of the Armadillo Cowboy Club
Everything in Coyote Canyon is dusty, dirty and & slow. Nothing looks
new, just weathered with layers of dirt and dust. But none is dustier,
dirtier or more mean looking than the local sheriff, "Sam the Rattler".
He has folks shivering at the sound of his tail as it rat-a-tat-tats all
over town. No one really knows what is in the end of his tail. Some say
it is a bank robber with a bag full of gold coins that was just too
stubborn to be digested. But even Sam didn't know his tail was a lot
more special than just having a rascally robber rattling around.
Sam's tale is as interesting as his tail, as to how he got to be named
Sheriff. Sam used to be just an ordinary big, nasty rattlesnake living
in the desert on the outskirts of town. He minded his own business and
ate the odd neighbor, just like any other snake. He had no dream of
being a sheriff or running a town. He dreamt of eating everyone in town,
but that's about as far as it went. I guess that sheriff's badge had
other plans, because it seemed to be waiting for him in Coyote Canyon as
he slithered around in the hot sand. It must have been his voracious
appetite for villains that led him to his destiny. Or maybe it was his
tail that made him shake, rattle and roll his way to fame.
