So, I'm coming home from church tonight and I'm turning left onto Cline to come home and I really just wanted to go home and go to bed but I was a bit low on gas and something was telling me to do it now versus later.
So I pull into the gas station and this guy pulls up to the other side of the pump and says "hi". I'm not all that talkative of a person but I said "hi" back. So then he starts talking about my KI stickers on my car, and my ears perk up. And he's got a KI sticker on HIS car. Now I'm into it.
So I start talking about where my relatives are on the island. And all of a sudden he stops and looks at me funny. And I'm thinking, uh oh - what did I say?
He goes "What did you say your name was again?" And I said I'm Jason, I'm Christine Bradburn's son and he goes "WHOA! We're COUSINS! I'm Phil's son, Joe" And I was floored. I knew that I had relatives living in the area but I never expected to actually meet them, like just out of the blue like that.
Pretty cool experience to meet someone you've never seen before and find out you're related!
