    I judged at his ole hunting camp in Arkansas many years ago and had the pleasure of spending the evening with his grandson ( if memory serves me yet)and listen to him tell stories of him....Rob Leatherbery traveled with Tommy many years ago and he has some fine stories to tell of that bunch and those days gone by ....Steve S

    Anyway, he alway dressed very sharp... Pressed jeans with a crease down the middle. Harvey, for those that didn't know him was a small man. He alway seem to have a nice clean, ironed shirt on as well. And I recall his leather work gloves... Don't know why this made such an impression on me other than we didn't really have any pros in Alaska at the time and I was still fairly new to the game. I remember also that he drove a pickup and pulled a big dog trailer. I asked him why he used the trailer instead of having a dog truck. He told me there were times he liked to use his truck as a truck. We spent a fair bit of time talking about duck hunting... As I grew up in SC hunting flooded timber. And I think Harvey was from AL or MS (not sure) but he liked talking about hunting.

    I had a real good qual level dog at that time( my first trial dog, later AFC GMHR) so we had a real friendly competition going the whole time he was up there. In two seasons and I think 10 trials I won one and placed in 8. Harvey won most of the rest with his various dogs that were on his truck! Back then, guys would still meet at a local watering hole for a drink or two after a trial... Winner buys at least the first round.

    That died off a few years ago when drinking and driving became more of an issue to most of us. Also the game changed and most of the participants nowadays are so competitive, there is not near as much of the socializing after the trial. I'll bet canuckkiller, criquetpas, jd6400, Marvin, Dr Ed and others could really tell some tales if they were so inclined about some of the shenanigans of the 60's and 70's! Just from my start in the mid 80's I remember some pretty hilarious stuff that I can't repeat here because some of the offenders are still alive!

    One of the funny ones though involved two inebriated guys crawling in the dark towards a buxom lass's room at a trialer's house we were staying at. Anyway, these two guys were crawling stealthily from different directions unbeknownst to the other in the dark... When at the door of the aforementioned "lady", they bumped head on into each other! One of them later married her. The other was a pro trainer. True story...

    No Jim, I'm not from here.

    Born and raised in South Carolina. But I spent most of my adult life in Alaska (where I got into the game) and a few years in WA state near Roy, McKenna, Ft Lewis. Only been here in TN for the last 5 years and have been out of the game for that time except for judging. Just now working on getting back in.

    Harvey's little black book should be in the Retriever Hall of Fame.
