My dad has three brothers and two sisters.
By design or default, Fay is the family organizer. Most of the events – Sunday dinners, grandpa’s birthday party, the annual Christmas Eve present exchange – have always taken place at her house. She MUST love family because she currently lives within walking distance of her daughter and three of her brothers! I can relate. I’d love to live smack dab in the middle between my siblings and my parents. JD’s lip is quivering right now because he knows it’s the truth!
Most of my memories of Ann involve motion. She was always on the go! I can see her now behind the wheel of her red and white bronco, on her way to work, pulling into the campsite, heading to Cookeville for crying out loud – it was twenty miles away! Ann is sassy. Ann’s a talker. Ann likes to go. I can relate. Ann is the younger sister and happy, I’m sure, to let her sister THINK she’s in charge. Did I already mention that I can RELATE?
When I was a child, my aunts’ were a constant presence in my life and I loved it. And here’s the exciting part – they’re coming with my mom to visit me this weekend! I can’t wait. I’m going to take pictures and ask questions and make them tell me funny stories about everybody.
I will have blog material for years to come. And if they don’t come up with anything good..did I mention my mom is coming?
