Thread: Happy DR Martin Luther King Jr day.

    Happy DR Martin Luther King Jr day.

    Happy Dr Martin Luther King Jr day.


    CYA friends:


    My life long hunting buddy, and mentor, Lawrence Parson, was a black man....and I'm a white man...


    As long as I knew Lawrence I never looked at him as having a different color skin than me, and vice-versa.



    Me and Lawrence in 1973

    CYA friends:



    Dr Martin Luther Kings most important quote, in my opinion, is this:



    I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.



    That's the way Lawrence and I dealt with each other....


    Your friend, Bill Calfee

    CYA friends, this is just my opinion:


    If Dr King and Lawrence were with us today, I believe they would be horrified at how the "cancel culture" is attempting to silence free speech in this wonderful Nation...

    It ain't the color of your skin...

    CYA accuracy fool friends:


    It ain't the color of your skin...



    CYA accuracy fool friends, I'm glad my time on this old Earth is about over...


    I don't belong in the world we live in today.....neither does Lawrence or Martin Luther King Jr....

    He taught me a lot....

    He taught me a lot....


    CYA accuracy fool friends:


    My old hunting buddy, Lawrence Parson, taught me a lot.....


    Not only about hunting, but about the way human beings, of different races, should treat each other....


    Anyway.......


    Lawrence could do something I had a terrible time with...



    If I removed a groundhog from a farmers field, and if the shot was way out there...


    I'd have a tough time walking directly to it, to remove it....



    Sometimes I'd walk back and forth, here and there, trying to locate the groundhog...so I could remove it...


    I don't care how much time I spent studying landmarks....


    I still had trouble finding the groundhog...


    Not Lawrence...................



    That man would head directly to the groundhog, not vary a step off course, and pick it up...


    Like this example:

    These shots was over 250 yards......


    See the white arrow....



    But he walked straight to the groundhogs......never varied an inch...

    How, I never learned......



    Memories.........

    For you varmint hunting CYA folks:


    I made those two shots using a Model 722 Remington, in 244 Remington caliber.....later to be re-named the 6MM Remington, but with a quicker twist....

    The 244 Remington was 12 twist.....perfect for a 6MM varmint rifle....

    The ill fated 6MM Remington was 9 twist......a fatal mistake by Remington....bc

    Lawrence hunted for sport, like I did, but, he consumed the game he took in the field.


    The two groundhogs you see him carrying in the above photo were barbecued by him.....



    I'll tell it like it is......I tried barbecued groundhog and it didn't appeal to me....



    When Lawrence barbecued these two groundhogs he also included a chicken for me....


    By the way.............


    Lawrence had a special barbecue sauce that he developed......


    When he barbecued, he'd first take a mixture of white wine, water and butter, and base the meat with this, slowly, until it was almost done....


    Then....


    He'd take his secret barbecue sauce, tomato based, and finish the meat with it....


    CYA friends, it was the best tasting barbecue sauce I've ever tasted......nothing else close...




    Anyway.................


    That man consumed what he killed in the field......he wasted nothing......



    Memories.....sweet memories....

    Wally, Lawrence is the one who got me into headcheese sammiches.....

    We'd always stop at a grocery store around noon, when we were hunting, and get some sammiches, chips, cookies and pop...


    Lawrence always got headcheese and pepperjack sammiches.....


    It took me a few times before I decided to try a headcheese sammich....


    I'd get headcheese, on rye if they had it, with cheddar, red onion and brown mustard.....


    A killer sammich.....


    Lawrence always got a package of Murray peanut butter cream cookies....


    I'd get a banana Moon Pie........chocolate if they didn't have banana...


    Or a banana flip if they didn't have Moon Pies...


    We both drank RC Cola along with it.....


    A lot of pleasant memories........and learning some things about life in the process....

    Bill,

    You gotta have RC if you have a moon pie. I think in Indiana that's the law right before the one that says you have to shoot if you build a new rifle. I think in Kentucky it's in the KY Bill of Rights.

    No, Bill. The last time I saw it I handed it to J Pat and told him I wouldn't bother him. I think he told me a little bit but that was it. I guess he'll let me know when it's time to get it. I can't do anything with it right now anyway.

    But if it's close to another Gingersnap that sounds good.
