I love happy endings that just keep going.

Dean, that is a great story, and how cool is it that the ol' Trojan will be in your hands once again! I hope you get to down a bird or two with it!

Great story, Dean!! Really enjoyed it.

I found a little leather-bound 1876 edition of Snow Bound and Other Poems by Whittier on the arm of my Father's easy chair when cleaning up after his death.

I have that book Dave and remembered that quote that I used. I referred to the book to be sure I had it right. Only had to alter the name of the month for the purposes of my story.
