Uncle John is really cool. Uncle John is Mrs. Harward’s uncle and she invited him to come and tell us stories. They are stories about a jackrabbit named Jack. He happens to be bigger than all other jackrabbits.
He told us how Jack had forced him and his friends to agree not to shoot them anymore; his trip to Jack’s burrow to meet him and his wife and all his children and having lots of trouble getting down through the hole; saving a kitty who had fallen into a mine shaft by using a rabbit ladder and catching some escaped convicts from a detention camp a little east of Pioche who were threatening three people at Delmue’s Ranch (also required using a hoard of his lieutenants).
We loved hearing his “Jack” stories. We loved the details. We were amazed by the stories and we didn’t want him to quit. We were thankful he would use his spare time to tell us stories. Thank you Uncle John.
