Curiouser And Curiouser

A Lewis Carroll quote as a title, a new twist on an old blog almost worthy of the "Alice" author.

A Colorado/Texas Connection

I thought it was a strange coincidence when a co-worker decided to move to the same very small town where a good friend of mine lives.  It gets stranger (curiouser)

Our executive producer Kat is moving with her family to Borger, Texas, the same small town where my high school/college buddy James lives with his family.  I blogged about that last week, small world etc.  Kat had some questions about her soon-to-be home.  I asked James if he'd take a call from her to get some info, he said, 'sure"

So last night they talked on the phone.  James answered her questions about pre-school and other Borger stuff.  Then they kept talking about families, and where are you from?...where have you lived? . 

Here's the twist. 

It turns out Kat's husband Jared had a Grandmother who was the sister of James' Grandmother!  Jared and James are second cousins.  Kat and Jared have even been to a family reunion at James' parents house in the Denver area.  They didn't remember meeting each other that day, but they're pretty sure they must have.  So this started as a friend moving to the same small town as another friend, and became semi-distant relatives connecting.

The Colorado/Texas connection was stronger and stranger than we thought. 

So good luck Kat.  Say "hey" to James for me!

We'll talk again soon.
