Wow! Scam comments--how disgusting! We DO NOT want to check out your web site to make $900 a month.

Hope this is the last of this...

On the bright side--terrific pictures, and a great story!!

Thank you Sue. I picture the four cousins arm in arm thirty years from now, crazy as ever!

Love to all,

What a sweet image of the four of us 30 years from now - arm-in-arm, no doubt to hold each other up! But that's the point, right? May there also be lots of other cousins, too, arm-in-arm all holding each other up.

Great picture taken by Sue Kinsella at the Conservatory of Flowers. Hopefully, she will tell us more about this picture, and her trip there.

AND, If the Green Thumbs related to Gladys, or anyone, have pictures of their own gardens, send them along!

Cousins are a wonderful gift. Growing up, I was closest to the Coleman girls. I think proximity had a lot to do with it.

Wendell does not count in the 'cousin' thing because he was more like another brother.

I loved the Emhof girls a lot. They were both older but were wonderful to me. Now they are even better. Dorothy was one of my favorite cousins and still is. I dearly love her.

All of you 'Taylor' cousins were the greatest when we got together, but it was not often enough! Sue and Kathy stand out there.

Funnily, the 'cousin' I was closest to (and still am) was/is about an 8th cousin. We are related, but very distantly. Luckily. Joyce Tillotson was and is the person I am closest to. Being so distantly related, she married Wendell. I rejoice for that. She is the greatest!

I think the picture of Sue with the birthday cake looks a lot like Kelly (Jim & Jill's daughter).

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.

This post is a bit odd, I agree. Make sure you read the second part of the post, Crazy Cousins, part two--this is where Sue tells the story. This first part is just pictures.

They are meant to be read together.
