Arnie the Armadillo lived in a vast, open area of plains and desert and cattle and cowboys. Technically, he lived near one of the few big watering holes in northern Texas, but Arnie wasn't concerned with that. The only thing Arnie much thought about was how much he loved his home and his friends. Yes, Arnie was a happy armadillo, and he was even happier than normal that day. For you see, it was Arnie's birthday!
