I loved sitting on Uncle Mike's lap watching Twilight Zone and Outter Limits. He would raise a newspaper up to hide me from the "scary parts" and I'd always peek over and get scared. He would just laugh and say "I told ya not to look" or "I told ya it was scary".

He also taught me the proper way to eat a lemon, cut in half with a little salt sprinkled on it.
