As you will see in the pages that are indexed to this page, I was born and raised in Parker, Armstrong County, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Back then, it was one of those perfect little towns in which to grow up, but Parker is not a town, but officially recognized by the Government of Pennsylvania as what is called a "Third Class City." Parker is considered the smallest city in the United States. When I went to Grove City College, in Grove City, Pennsylvania, an Iranian student, Fouad Noonoo, told me of his impression of Parker as he worked one summer on a road paving crew that went through the place repairing the macadam road surfaces. "Parker is church, bar, graveyard," declared Fouad. Well, it was a bit more than that when seen by the eyes of a kid growing up in the place.
