'Uncle Bob' had a good time at event

To the Editor:

I am pleased to have this opportunity to speak to my many good friends in southern Hoosier-land.

For over 29 years, I had the privilege of teaching radio and television broadcasting to aspiring broadcasters at Arizona Western College in Yuma.

As one might suspect ... to a student ... most of them chose to call me "Uncle Bob" rather than the usual "Mr." Hardy. Some of my teaching colleagues found this "not respectful" of my position as their teacher. I told them that I strongly disagreed and reminded them that when someone used the term "Uncle" ... it was usually with sincere respect! I was honored that virtually all of students called me Uncle Bob!

I felt this same compliment during the recent Labor Day activities in your area ... when all of them ... young and old ... greeted me as "Uncle Bob".

It was over 50 years ago when the Haylof Frolic and the Old Western Ledger took their final curtain calls ... and yet ... when I was in your midst I still could hear them calling ... "Uncle Bob"! To me, this is a compliment I accept with humble pride.

The folks have been good to this (now) old man ... and I smile to them ... in return. Your (now Uncle) ... in the Arizona Desert ...

Uncle Bob Hardy

Yuma, Az.
