|To keep it more Civil War, Johnny was a gun collector too and earlier this year I got to hold his favorite cap and ball revolver from his collection in my hands, it was a unique thing too. It had no trigger guard and the trigger retracted up into the body of the gun. Not too good for a gunslinger but good for someone like me that would have "shot their eye out kid."
Johnny's music is an acquired taste for most folks but I love it too. My cell phone plays "Ring of Fire" when my oldest boy calls me since he plays the trumpet and we both love Johnny's music. "Boy Named Sue" was a big part of the soundtrack of my first Civil War grand tour when I was a kid, as it just came out that summer or 69.
