I Have the Coolest Uncle!

No, really! He is. Uncle Clyde has been to Antarctica. He has the hat to prove it. The frostbite went away. He's been all around the world, actually, to remote locations like Bali, China, and such. It's his job: he designs and installs weather systems. His coffee mug has a periodic table on it. He has a cabin in the Northern California mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the distance. He and my Aunt Suzie are both licensed ham radio operators. How friggin' cool is that?

He's also a pilot, and lemme tell ya, he can tell you flying stories that'll keep you glued to your seat for hours on end. He taught Aunt Suzie how to fly.

Yeah. My Uncle Clyde is the coolest uncle in the world. He can kick your uncle's ass for sure.

Check it out, he's breeding his own Air Force:

Oh yeah? Well my uncle attacked another guy in his retirement home with a cane! Fiesty ol' bastard. That's why we love him.
