Ah, I know I'm just a lucky guy, but---

I just had to share the latest in my lifetime of great good luck that started with marrying the W 1 FE unit over fifty years ago.

Friday at the Harrisburg show, my friend Tommy booked his first Cape buffalo hunt in Africa. Tommy bought my .416 Remington Mag a few years ago in anticipation of going on such a hunt, and now it has become reality for him and his wife. For some reason, he and Pam have wanted us to go along with them, so Doris and I stopped by the outfitter's booth yesterday and checked out whether that would be possible. It is, and it looks like we are going. I will not be hunting. My role is to go along with camera in hand and take photos of Tommy's hunt, then when we get back, write a story for him about his adventure.

I know, I know. Just one more reason to use me as a bad example, but somebody has to be THE LUCKIEST HUNTER ALIVE, doesn't he?

Looking forward to the next volume George...Or the "boxed set" for that matter!

If anything gets boxed, Ken, it might be my ears.
Sometimes the W 1 FE unit gets a bit vexed with me.

It gets shorter as I get longer in the tooth, RR. I was just telling another poster that I've slowed down a bit in recent years, but all of a sudden my travel planning got a tad more complicated. Tommy's buffalo hunt is from June 21-29. A group of us are leaving for a fishing trip in Quebec on July 2. I'll be hustling back from South Africa and leaving a couple of days later for a fishing trip. Oh well. Somebody has to do the hard jobs, right?
