Let me tell you about my granddaughters: The Sisterly cousins

2013-11-03 - Shelbyville, KY - Photo by Pen. The Sisterly Cousin Society of Shelby County at a recent giggle-in in Shelbyville. That's Tillie left and Hailey first cousins, now as close as sisters. The gatherings are not all giggle sessions. Tillie takes time to instruct the younger Hailey in proper etiquette - particularly the deference younger ones make to their elders, especially to herself; and the lessons are well taken by Hailey, who gets a respite from her routine chore, bossing her two adoring older brothers. In our family, the special cousinship is deja vu, a reminder of the Jamestown Hill sisterly third cousinhood of Annette Waggener & Hilda Joyce Willis, who had a special cousinspeak they understood, but was as difficult for outsiders - all other people in the world - to understand as Navajo. The society ladies above are the grandchildren of Linda & Ed Waggener of Columbia, KY. - Granddad, Ed Waggener
