I remember being all dressed up in my angel wings for a school pageant and in come’ One Shot; he got our attention took his photo and was on his way.” Kathy Greden, Winona Photographer
Friends and I had fun remembering One Shot’s Friday night appearances at area basketball games.
He came in wearing with his wool coat and fedora, pipe in his mouth; took a picture using flash bulbs and went on his way to the next town.
People are enjoying enjoy photos taken by One-Shot and his sister at the Winona County History Center.
There are lots of smiles as people recall One-Shot’s Columbo like appearance and share memories of recent decades.
Minnesota author Joseph Helgerson remembered One-Shot, too. One-Shot, also known as Merritt Kelley, makes a cameo appearance in Horns & Wrinkles, Helgerson’s fantasy adventure set in a river town, aka Winona. It seems that trolls are inhabiting the area under the bridge. . . .My friend’s third grade students love the book.
