The "Tarnation" calendar with the old coot who blasted up his greenhouse shooting at a hawk flying off with a chicken?

I don’t know where you can get one.
I have one but I’ll be keeping mine.

Would you be willing to share a scan? Hoping to put something together on the “working mans” Parker for the pages!

I can do that Rick.

It will be after the Annual Meeting - I've got my hands pretty full at the moment.

Best, Dean

Awesome! Thanks Dean! No rush on this end, I'm still piecing this together, now I have to work on a direction!

That "Tarnation" painting was done by William Harnden Foster and he painted a lot of similar situations with a Parker involved.

He had quite the sense of humor... In the third picture the neophyte duck hunter is using a .410 Parker and one of his oars has slipped out of the oarlock. All three situations were painted to allow us to laugh at ourselves.

Rick, A little late, but I have some of the "Tarnation" calendars. I can mail you one if you're still interested.
