is named after a ponderosa pine flagpole made by a scouting party from Boston on July 4, 1876 in order to celebrate the United States Centennial. At least that is the story some tell.

I am looking forward to a nice visit tomorrow also. In the meantime we will take in the sights, visit the party spots ... or I may take a nap.

I was just getting ready to tell you that Jim Taylor

are old too. All 3 are the adjustable sight model from about '75 thru '81 or so and were all made within the same 2 or 3 year period. No new fangled plastic guns for us.
