    random thoughts at three in the morning

    does anyone have family
    that they do not know?
    like you could pass them on the street
    and have no idea you were related?

    I have a cousin
    six years younger than me
    I have never seen her
    I think she lives overseas,
    I must ask some time

    I have a niece that I met once when she was 17, and the last time I saw her older sister was over 20 years ago. I am fairly sure I wouldn't know if they passed me on the street. I don't think that I would recognize any of my cousins either. We are not a close family.

    I have way too many family members
    I have never seen
    the cousin is the one closest to me in age though
    I do not really see any advantage in getting to know
    the entire extended family

    but it may be nice to have some connections
    after the older generation has passed on

    [​IMG] I'm everywhere!!

    I actually have something like a billion cousins... [​IMG] and all of them are almost a different generation... like 20 years older than me.....
    My sister and I look completely different though. She has short hair, for one... [​IMG]

    you sure that is not because
    she had a hair cut? [​IMG]

    Yes. My moms side is from the north and I was born and raised in the south.
