I remember when I was about 6 or 7 all the uncles from Washington and Wisconsin and the local ones all took us to New Town to watch a Indian pow wow. For some reason I was riding on uncle Leonard’s lap while he was driving. All of a sudden the window washers came one and I asked him how he did that. He said, “When I pee it goes on the windshield” I was impressed!
Another time when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade and our assignment was to write a book about something and we were to send it to someone who lived out of North Dakota. I chose to send it to uncle Leonard and the title was, Buffalo on the prairie. My book was about 4 or 5 pages and I drew a picture of a buffalo and a tree and grass. It was a master peace. Ha! My teacher put everything together and we sent it. About a 2 weeks later I got a letter from uncle Leonard with a note how he like my story and with It he sent 2 dollars. I sure picked the right person to send my book to! We will miss you uncle Leonard.

When Susan and I were first married we moved to Milwaukee I was 17 she was 16 I worked for short time at EZ Painters, uncle Leanord sold me his old red and white Mercury the car i used to love to ride in and wash at the lake when he came on vacation! I got it real cheap but didn’t have much money to give him at the time. But he said thats ok pay when i can he says i have it down in my little black book. Shortly after he sold me the car to get back and forth to work I got lonesome for home in North Dakota, Susan and I packed up everything we had in the trunk of the car and the back seat headed home without telling anyone! I didn’t know at the time but as we were leaving uncle Leanord met us passing by i think on the way to Charlies house, he was wondering where we were going I found this out years later. You know i finally paid him off for the car after many years i had owed him $75….i gave him a $100 and we laughed i said uncle leanord you can finally scratch me out of your black book! We all had a good laugh I remember the twinkle in his eye as he grinned and we all laughed. You will be missed!…love ya jim
