    • #078: Paul Forster writes: "Attached is a photo of me [Paul Forster] and Richard Navarre taken at Holy Cross Seminary, LaCrosse, WI around 1950. His parents owned a farm in Section 11 for many years. They used to attend the Junction church services. His mother was one of the funniest people I have ever known. When they moved to the farm neither one of them had a clue as to what to do. According to her, they would look out the window to see what the neighbors were doing, and promptly hop to it! Richard used to "hunt Christmas trees". No, really. As we all know, the nicest shaped trees are on the top. So he would take a pocket full of 12 ga. slugs and his trusty shotgun and proceed to bag his tree. Nutty as fruitcakes, the whole bunch of them! Thank goodness there are people like that."
