When Uncle Homer stopped by to visit, he delighted in rolling up his pants legs, and flexing his calves to make the ladies dance for me. Cousin Dallie recalls Uncle Homer's exceptional patience. When he visited her home, she says, he would sit for an hour or more, allowing her to tape various paper doll outfits on the naked ladies!
Every family needs a quirky or unconventional relative to provide stories for future generations. My Uncle Homer is just one of many!
