It is a cold, rainy, miserable day here in western Washington. I am sequestered in my den, which is not a bad place to be. The walls have numerous pictures of great archery friends that I have had for the last 68 years. It's nice to sit in the comforts of my warm snuggery and meditate on past friends and events. On one wall is a photo of Ron Hoiland, who was endowed with a spirit of traditional archery in every fiber of his body.
Ron loved shooting his Hill-style longbows. He was also a master of making Hill-style broadhead arrow points.
What a pleasure it was to go to some remote, old stump-fields with him and spend time killing stumps, having great fun, and telling our lies to each other.
I hope that you have esteemed buddies, like Ron, to enrich your memories when you too are sequestered to your den on a cold, miserable day!
