Lorraine & Steve Hill are from Muskogee County, Oklahoma.
They met Johnny Crawford at the Missouri Town Fall Festival 1855 - October 7 - 8, 2017
Margie, I thought you may enjoy this photo we took in Lee's Summit, Mo. this weekend. We met Johnny Crawford, he signed my rifle scabbard, that a friend made for me in 1966. I carry my Winchester rifle in it while riding on our ranch.
Johnny was a real nice guy, took time with us and kidded around with us.
He was just like I'd hoped he would be. Just like he was on The Rifleman. We had fun with him, he acted like we had all day to talk, but there were other people waiting, so I had to cut it short. Made my day, heck my whole year!
Margie, here is a pic of the rifle my father gave me for Christmas 1965. He bought it for me because I liked the Rifleman so much. At the time we thought that Chuck used a model 1894 (there was no info highway, like today). Lucas reminded me of my father in many ways.
Thanks S & L for sharing this special time with us here at the ranch!
