    Default Long Lost Cousins

    Today I got to meet and have lunch with a cousin of mine that I have not seen or heard from for about 50 years.

    It was a very, very good meet-up. I was a very apprehensive about how it would go, but to my great surprise we shared a wonderful time.

    Below is my cousin and me at the restaurant where we met.

    I was trying to place the restaurant but couldn't. We were thru Bartow last weekend.

    We were at Shells in Tampa on Dale Mabry. We drove over there in that bad rain and lightning around lunch time. Scary....

    If you were in Bartow, why did you not let me know so we could have met up? Shame on you.... bad, bad Niko.

    Niko, I think that I remember that you said previously that you had come through Bartow. Is this something you do often? If so, let me know and we can make time to meet. That would be great.

    Hanging my head in shame...

    When I come thru there it's almost always me and the kid ( not a kid really...k, not at all ) and going to Lakeland to go where ever . It's always on a Sunday ( my only day off ) and not on very long notice. May decide a day or two before and sometimes that morning. The biggest decision on going is how long I think I can walk that day hence deciding that very morning that I think I can make it further than from the parking lot to the entrance without taking a break and having to stop. Some days are better walk days than others. It's normally about once a month that we go. Normally. Bartow is about maybe hour and a half drive.

    If you're up for short notice let me know. If you can't do it one time then maybe we could hit it up another time. I'd love to meet you!
