When Ed and his wife were on their 2008 Alaska vacation he got ahold of me and I flew the 100miles to home from a remote camp and had him over for dinner. She had already flown south. He gave me a signed copy of his Shooting Flying book once we had finished dinner. I recently found the book hiding underneath my set of The Parker Story on a shelf. It is an excellent book and the memorable evening we had was unforgettable and very worth the flight to town.

I forgot to add that I gave him a look at all my Parkers and he noticed something on my inherited VHE20 that I had never noticed. It doesn't say "Parker Bros" on the sides of the receiver and doesn't have "Parker" on the bottom. It's the only one I've ever seen like that. I had possessed that gun for 34yrs at that point and I had never noticed that. Go figure, eh?

What an enjoyable thread. Thanks, Richard, for adding a memory.
