NV often writes about the great 8 - the group of friends that we met in high school and are still friends today. One of the 8 also happens to be a cousin - not a direct cousin but we never cared. Well, BCuz's baby graduated and she threw him a party this weekend. Turns out that all of my Mom's cousins were in attendance.
A few recognized me right away. The dead give away - apparently I must look a lot like my Grandma because I heard over and over, "You look so much like Aunt Sally!" We chatted and caught up but I'm sure Mom would have much more to add to the conversation.
So Mom, I'm sorry for not insisting you join us. And here is a picture to let you know that we were all thinking about you!
