Birthday coincidence

I just realised, thanks to the wonders of Facebook, that both my oldest first cousin and my youngest first cousin have birthdays today. The one is about 40 and the other about 20. My mother is the oldest of nine children, and I am the oldest of my grandfather's grandchildren (he was married twice). Altogether there are 22 of us, with I think about 17 in the next generation so far (my own three children, my two nieces, and a dozen offspring of our other cousins). I don't think we have ever all been in the same place at the same time, and there's at least one I haven't seen in twenty-five years.

My father, on the other hand, had only one sister who had no children. Funny how families vary.

FB and families
Due to the wonders of facebook, I recently had a telephone conversation with my sister who has blanked me either accidentally or negligently for about twenty years. I also managed to arrange with her and my frail brother in Kent to send flowers to, whoops, _for_ a deceased uncle in Dorset. To many people, this may not sound like much, but you haven't met the Poyners!

The phone conversation wasn't hugely lovey, but I guess there are limitations EVEN to our favourite social network.
