Distant Cousins...

I was told by Mom and Dad that they had seven children, but I just don't see it. There just could not possibly have been seven of us. Maybe the others were distant cousins due to the resemblance, but my siblings, I don't think so. The more I think about it there could have been two of us, but no more. Don't get me wrong, they are all nice people who have made a good life for themselves and as distant cousins any family would be proud to claim them. They say that blood is thicker than water and that is one of the reasons I invited my distant cousin Nancy to live with us. As far as cousins goes she is great. She is a hard worker, and has a great sense of humor. She is very resilient. She is a survivor of breast cancer twice in ten years. Her friends tell her she doesn't march to the same beat as the rest of the world. I guess they mean that as a compliment, but I would say she is a little eccentric and off beat. As you know my wife's father lives with us and now Nancy. She is a nice addition to our convalescent home. Her and Mr. Lupher get along rather well. Personally I love it because they both sleep a lot.

Nope. I've met all 7 of them. They're definitely siblings!

Nice to hear about your convelescent home. I'll be looking for a place to send Mikey when he gets back from Colorado. Let me know when you have something open up! He could be a cousin from the side of the family no one talks about.
