John's book threw me for a bit of a loop. I wanted to file it away in the brain cabinet reference drawer titled "Biography", but it would not quite fit.

Some of you who have read the book sent me emails with your personal stories similar to the ones I wrote about Shooting Blackie and Billy the Goat. I don't have a picture of Blackie. I wish I did.
