    Ok, so none of that is true.

    I was born in Joliet, lived in Campus until I was 4 (anyone know Campus? Anyone? Any of the 100 or so residents here?). At 4, moved down to Quincy, right on the Muddy Mississippi, Adams County.

    After HS, joined the Big Green Machine, saw the world for a few years, came back to Q-Town. Followed some work to the Macon, GA area for about 8 years, and moved back here to Quincy in 2006.


    Now, if anyone in my area knows of a place to shoot besides PASA Park in Barry (45 minutes is a touch long for a short session), I'd be GREATLY obliged.

    If you lived there long enough, you would have heard of Blackie Woolsey. He used to run the gas station, & I delivered to him. Also, George Rogers in Petersburg, back when he flew the Phillips 66 flag. Also had some farm customers up that way.

    But, that was 20+ years ago ...........

    Yes sir, same guy ! I don't think he'll ever quit. His son David used to be with him, and at one time, worked for the FBI or something. Ed ? used to work there, and was a really nice guy.

    You know "Radical" that cuts meat over there ? We were classmates for a lot of years .....
