Cousins, cousins everywhere – part two

Auntie Sandy came to visit a couple of weeks after Lisa was here, so there was another gathering of the cousins.

Cousins, cousins everywhere – part one

We wandered out to Chuck & Larie’s for a cousins get-together in mid August when Lisa came to visit, and then we did it again in early September when Auntie Sandy came to visit. I haven’t seen so many cousins at one time in years. Visits include lots of photos, so I’ll just quit typing and post a bunch of them. This post will be Lisa’s visit. Auntie Sandy’s visit will be the next post.

This is Chuck’s lap dog.

Oh, yes he is! This is such a hilarous sight – Quincy sits on Chuck’s lap every chance he gets.

Jayson had Wilbur doing his famous Saying Prayers trick. Aren’t they both adorable?

And I can’t end this post without introducing you to Cousin Lizard. 🙂

what a day!

Boy, what a day this has been! First, a cousin from Texas finds me through a listing on my work website (thanks to his wife, who knows her way around the internet)  (not many people in the world with my name) and after talking to him for about 30 minutes I sign on to send him an email with some info and there’s an email from another cousin, who found me through a memorial I created on Find A Grave for my 4-greats grandfather who is also his 4-greats grandfather! I don’t think it gets much better than this!

This makes six new cousins I’ve found in the past year. Maybe eventually we’ll get all the branches, limbs and twigs of the family genealogy completely filled out… or at least we’ll leave a great foundation for future generations to build on.
