aka Uncle Pug 

Posted by Pastor Ron Monday, April 04, 2011 6:00:00 AM

The real Uncle Pug was my father Lee Sallee whose given name was Perle but was called Uncle Pug by all my cousins.

Just about the time my father died three other things happened: 1) My cousin gave me a dive boat. 2) I named the boat after his uncle.  3) I joined an internet scuba forum and needed a screen name.

I used the name of my dive boat ~ Uncle Pug ~ as my screen name and a picture of a camel's head for my avatar.

And so I became Uncle Pug (or often just UP) online.  I even have a mug to prove it.

One of these days I intend to finish writing "The celebrated adventures of Uncle Pug  and other landings I walked away from".  Part one was already written by the original Uncle Pug.

Have you ever thought of your life as the continuation of a story started long before you were born? It is you know.
