I want you to meet your cousins...

These fine fellers are your cousins twice removed on your Grandpa Earl's cousin's ex wife's neighbors brother's side!! Yes, tis the season people...Summer, BBQ's, Fireworks, and Family Reunions! I have to say I have had the splendid opportunity to attend two said reunions already this summer and fortunately these two have yet to show up, although there were others with some resemblances. How does this happen, and does this happen in everyone's family? This is a question I'd like to know the answer to. One reunion was on my dad's side and the other was a reunion with Randy's family. In both cases, there were always interesting people there...and I use that term "interesting" quite liberally. I think somewhere, somehow, down the line there was some cross breeding going on! (And I thought that only happened in Ky.) I am just waiting for the day to be invited to Paris Hilton's Family Reunion at the local fairgrounds and see what turns up there....

Interesting is such a polite way to put it -- we too have several that I try to avoid at all costs!!

Yowsa! I know, they all come out of the wood work at reunions. I have an alcoholic cousin and her husband told her kids that her alcoholism problem is just like their pepsi addiction. Riiiiight. Where do this people come from??

Where did you even find that picture? Some old prison photos from way back when? Anyway, I'll try not to take offense since I was at one of those reunions. I think I'm going to have nightmares tonight from that pic. Thanks sis. xo
