Nice article and hope they are successful in erecting the statue. He was up our way several times, though I did not get a chance to meet him myself.

I believe he started out right handed, then hurt his arm pretty bad in a freak accident causing him to switch. He was ambidextrous and a marksman with a rifle as well, great hand and eye coordination. He could shoot and aspirin out of the air with a bb gun.
Flip Pallot’s book is a great biography. Very humble man. Not large in stature but certainly a giant. Thanks for the news Al.
