An 80th birthday bash for my uncle, Paul Husky, turned out to be as much a party for me as for the guest of honor.
I suppose my being 64 years old myself has a lot to do with all these nostalgic feelings I have lately, and this gathering enhanced the mood more than I have words to express.
First of all it is always a pleasure to be around my uncle and aunt. They just enjoy life so much, and if you have a laugh in you, my 80-year-old uncle will get it out.
Cousins were there from Indiana, Missouri, Texas and, of course, Arkansas. Most of us were together as small children in the cotton fields, in school and almost every Sunday after church.
