RIP Patrick McManus......

Postby WapitiTalk1 » 04 13, 2018 •  [Post 1]

Beloved humor writer Patrick McManus dies at age 84. Most of you who have been on the planet a bit will remember Pat's writings in Field and Stream and Outdoor Life. I know when I read those magazines, oftentimes from cover to cover back in the day, I would always be met with the comical styling's of old Pat which always made me laugh. He'll be missed for sure.....

I loved that guy! Sorry to see him go but he certainly made the most of life doing what he loved.

I laughed @ McManus' columns for years. Sad to lose a voice of humor in this too-serious age.

His books are available at https://www.thriftbooks.com at very reasonable prices if anyone would like to pick some up. I just ordered a handful.

Funny stuff. Any outdoors could relate to many of his stories

I use to read his books to my wife at bed time.
All too often I had tears rolling down my cheeks while trying to catch my breath.

I would read them in bed and be laughing so hard my wife would tell me to go downstairs! Ironically the day he died I pulled out one of his books to start reading it to my boys. How funny is that??
