    I am so sorry about the loss of your husband and father. Words are not going to take any of the pain away, but know that he is in a better place now. May you all find peace in that.

    Me and my uncle Paul never had much in common. But he said he had something for me to think about the long hours spent in the deer stand or waiting for the fish to bite. And I have thought about what he told me many times.
    What he said was ” you know when you drop a cat it always lands on its feet. and when peanut butter toast falls to the ground / floor it always lands on the peanut butter. So what would happen if you strapped a peanut butter sandwitch to the back of a cat?” Over the years he has asked me if I had figured it out yet. Many times. I would just smile saying no.
    I think what he was trying to tell me was to keep my thoughts simple.
    He will be missed,along with his funny wisdom.
