Uncle Josh lifed to a ripe old age of 97.
My favorite uncle. He was a rough and tumble sort of guy.
Hunter,fisherman all around outdoormans.
I asked him once what did he attribute to his long lifespan.
“How did you do it unk?”
He responded, “When I was 12 years old, my father took me aside and explained the key to long life is to sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of gun powder on every meal.”
Uncle Josh spent the next 85 years religiously sprinkling 1/2 teaspoon f gun powder on every meal.
He left 6 children
26 grand children
10 grand kids and counting.
I sure miss uncle Josh.
Every once in a while we take a trip to his final resting place
to toss flowers into the crater where the
crematorium once stood.
