Murdo Girl…The outlaws

The four men called themselves “The Outlaws.”

One of them is missing in the photograph herein.

Al Leckey, Bill Francis, Jerry Miller

He was a card-carrying member of “The Outlaws.”

His name was Robert and he lived in Michigan.

By all accounts he liked it there in Michigan.

Robert Haverberg

The guy on the left went by Al.

He lived in Pennsylvania, SD, and Califor-ni-aye

He married a girl from Murdo. (She was quite a gal.)

When Al joined “The Outlaws,” it caused her no dismay.

Yes by all accounts it caused her no dismay.

Jerry is the name of the man on the right.

He was the youngest of all “The Outlaw” guys.

When Jerry spoke, he was always quite polite

Yes Jerry was “The Outlaw” who was easiest on the eyes.

By all accounts he was easy on the eyes.

Bill is “The Outlaw” in the middle.

Of the four “Outlaws” he was the most notorious.

He could quote Shakespeare or riddle you a riddle

He was good natured and his kids were glorious.

Yes, by all accounts Bill’s kids were glorious.

There is a reason why they called themselves “The Outlaws”

They all married daughters of M.E.

Mr. Sanderson said they were son-in-laws not outlaws.

He said, “It’s all the same to me.”

“I gave them my daughters which should have set me free.”

He didn’t want to be set free if you ask me.

By all accounts he never was set free.

“So Bill, am I an Outlaw or an in-law? “It doesn’t matter, Gus…you’re glorious.”

    This was all so well written. I like the repetition after each description and what each man was like.
    Photo of uncle Bob is handsome. Btw it’s Al LECKEY. Spelling doesn’t really matter. It’s all gloriously MARVELOUSLY
    fun to read. Thank you for this.f

      I cannot believe I spelled Leckey wrong. I shouldn’t write late at night. Have I done that before? I’ll correct.
