I know this leaves you begging for a story....Oh, no, I don't want to go there. So, I'm referring you to a post Lori wrote back on 07/28/05. One thing Lori left out is our adopted sister Judy. Jim and Sharon adopted her when she was 15. Judy's mother committed suicide and she had no where to go. She was Marian's friend and Mom and dad legally adopted her so she would not be sent to a foster home. She lived with us until she was married at 17. The second thing she left out was Mom's drunk common-law husband Duffy (yes, he was the last one).

Please don't tell Judy that I left her out, I'd hate to hurt her feelings...

I'm going back in and putting Judy where she belongs now, but Duffy Huff, I am leaving the hell out, some things are just better blocked, ya know?

I know you do.

Sometimes I forget that you have soooo many brothers and sisters. Your mom was really quite the breeder, wasn't she? :) Thank God she was, or we wouldn't have you and Lori.

Will you please, please, please blog about the time your sister (Pam, I think?) drugged your mom so she wouldn't get married again?

Please?

While I'm feeling nostalgic, I think I'll blog about when we first met, and how you became my proxy mama.

Love you more than Asian horror films,

Yep, I'm crying.

Becky said the one thing she could remember that I didn't write was...mom saying, "You f*ckin' kids, (and she NEVER said the word f*ckin')what have you done to me now?

Poor mom.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, Beck, we really suck! Heeeeeeeeeeeeee.

I think Beck wants me to re post this mess...just for you hoo. xx, Lori

Becy-EEEEEE! This was my first belly-laugh in a long-assed day when what I needed most was a belly-laugh!

See, I see a bit of me in you,or a bit of you in me, when you go off with your honesty like that and write "thank God, no children" or "thank God, too old to have children"

because God knows, I would in SO many cases write the same danged thing!

(God does know best, doesn't he?)

Thank you for this! (and forgive me if I wasn't supposed to laugh at the "thank God" parts!)

Zilla,

I'm honest almost to a fault. Yep, no fluff with me. We do have that in common.

XXOO,
Becky

I love your family. I think there is a book to be written in this post and Fine Artist's.

I am so glad you became a blogger Becky, you and Lori are two of my favorites online.

In spite of all the crazyiness in your upbringing, you both are so kind and generous.

I just love you both.
