Uncle George and my dad used to take Alan, Phillip, and me camping frequently when we were kids. He nicknamed us Huey, Dewy, and Louie so we affectionately called him Uncle Scrooge. He asked us kids where we learned to cus like that, when we had our little disagreements and we said from you, but he said he never even heard those words before. Ha Ha.
Several years ago, after Uncle George had been in the hospital, he had a blood clot in his leg. I saw him at the restaurant and we had breakfast together (several times), but this time I ask him about the blood clot and said I could massage it for him and get it moving for him, (you don't want to do that) he just sat there for a minute, then it sunk in what I said. Uncle George then said why you little $#!t, and we laughed and laughed.
We miss you Georgey Pourgy
Love Roger
