My family, yes. "My" family, no.

Because it's also the family of my parents, siblings, cousins, and all other descendants and collateral relatives whose direct ancestors married into it.

Unless all your ancestors were only children who married only children, who bore only children, who married other only children, and begat more "only" children...

Well, most all of us know where I am going with that, huh? With possibly one two notable exceptions.

I've left the comments up.

So glad you learned to play nice. And yes, life's too short to worry about those who don't wish to share.

Thanks for the smile this afternoon.

Good land. I take it I missed something... epic.

I had a Chapin cousin (and someone I think is probably her mother) up until the wee small hours, hotly contesting pretty much everything I've blogged about the Chapins to date in a series of drive-by anonymous commenting.

Then, they also decided to email me.

This entry ( will give you a flavor...

I'm leaving all the comments up so they can be on the record, as dicey as it is.

What a piece of work...
