My hubby has an uncle in Oaklahoma City, who is a DA and participated in the Timothy McVay trials. He was on TV quite a bit back then. I think that is about as far as the fame goes in my family!

I'm not related to anyone that I know of, but my cousin (who I haven't seen since around 1964) is a cousin of actor Russ Tamblyn ("West Side Story," "Twin Peaks," and dad of Amber Tamblyn).

Larry, if you say that it was a dental coat that Zippy was wearing I'd be seriously worried............ (so should the public!!)

No relation, but Larry the Cable Guy owns a home on a lake close to here. And there's a rumor that Oprah Winfrey owns a home on the most prestigious lake around here. And Brett Favre is on the computer background. Do those count for anything?

Hi, New House Lady,

If Russ is related to your cousin and you're related to your cousin...

I know what you are hinting at, but no, it doesn't automatically make them related to me. For instance, my Aunt Janet married a man named Ted. That makes him my uncle, and their kids are my cousins. But my cousins' are cousins to Uncle Ted's brother's and sisters' kids, but they aren't related to me. (Of course, this doesn't hold true in families whose, as Jeff Foxworthy says, family tree doesn't fork!).

hahahaha! talk about overgrown roots. My grandfather's sister married my grandmother's brother and between the two families they had 13 children who are known as double cousins. I remember when I was 16 and met the cutest boy and was told that I couldn't date him because he was my double second cousin? Say what? When I told him he left me in a cloud of dust ................ahhhhh Green Acres if the life for me...........

LOL expat! My two cousins (sisters) married brothers (the younger sister married the older brother and the older sister married [duh!] the younger brother). Only one of them had kids though, so no kissing cousins there!
