I had a nice birthday today. I had a couple of gifts to open when I got home. One of them was from my sister. She sent a book (already read itâ€¦oh well thought that counts) and a picture CD from a family reunion. My dadâ€™s side of the family had a reunion in July. We were unable to attend because Ethan was still weak and we were broke.
I have not seen any of my cousins in years some of them more than 25. Seeing the pictures put a hole in my stomach. This is the first time in over 25 years the family has gotten together and I missed it. Regret is a bitch.
Anyway, here are some of my many first cousins (and my sister). My dad came from a family of seven. Missing are my Uncle Leonardâ€™s kids, my Larryâ€™s Kids, my Aunt Maryâ€™s kid, and me.
