Lee in the dunking booth

Lee hits the water in the dunking booth.

The dictionary defines a “yarn-spinner” as ‘someone inclined to tell long and involved stories (often of incredible happenings)’ and for anyone who knew Lee Johnson, that definition fit him like a pair of well worn goat-and-unicorn-rancher’s overalls.

I met Lee when I started in this job at some county function, can’t recall which one it was. It could have been any one of a dozen, because Lee was always interested in his community and what was going on. I’d look up from my notebook after writing a particularly good quote at a meeting, and would see Lee out of the corner of my eye.
