Nice work Phil. Concerning the "GS" you may as well start at the top. How about George Strait or maybe George C. Scott

I've enjoyed Phil's writing ever since his first contribution to Parker Pages, Winter 2015 Issue, "The Fox or the Parker".

Lately he has been sending his poetry, which I especially like.

Please keep writing Phil!

I saw the article..and thought I would post a photo/story of my 311 20 gauge. Dad bought me a new Remington 510 in 1957 to shoot Jr. NRA in our town. I still have it. I thought I was ready for my first new shotgun, so all of 1959 I made my case to Dad. He was not as enthused as I was..(or so I thought)..All through December I searched the house for it..NO luck..But on Xmas morning..Dad went into my room and returned with the 311 . It had been under my bed for a week..NEVER thought to look there. I have a front page picture from our hometown paper (1960) with me and 2 friends..and a pile of pigeons that we killed on a Saturday morning when we used to have pigeon shoots..on US 40..to get some of them out of downtown shopping area...Years later I had Dennis Smith restock it in XXX wood..and shape a small beavertail. Oscar Gaddy made the triggerguard. The blue and color are original..It will be up to my oldest daughter which of the grandsons gets it..and others. Memories...... I have the original hang tag..It cost Dad $68.50 in Clay City, Indiana..
