MrKitty, I didn't know we were related! We must make arrangements for a family reunion soon!
The drama in my family is unbelievable. I have a recently deceased relative who was infamous enough in his community that his death warranted a decently long article in the New York Times. He was well known for being, well, crazy. (If anybody's curious, PM me, but in the interest of anonymity, I don't want to post publicly, since my face was all over the local news at the time, and on a few national news bits). I can totally understand how relating stories like this and viewing them with humor can be therapeutic.
Thanks for posting. I was one of the people who wanted to hear the story, though I never posted anything asking for it.
