Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

Wednesday, December 05, 2007

Ever wonder who's who in your family? Here's a quick little chart that will help you understand your 1st cousins form your 2nd cousins once removed.

On the top row, find the relationship of one person to the common ancestor. Locate the other person along the left hand column, according to his relationship to the same common ancestor. The relationship is where the row and column intersect.

GC = Grandchild
GGC = Great Grandchild
N = Niece/Nephew
GN = Grand Niece/Nephew
#C = Number of Cousin
#R = Number of times removed

And, here's a bunch of pictures from our recent trip.

Dick Cheney Jokes About His Distant 'Cousin Barack' Obama
Saturday, October 27, 2007

WASHINGTON — Vice President Dick Cheney said Friday he hasn't reached out to "Cousin Barack" Obama since reports that the two share a distant relative.

In an interview for CNBC's "Kudlow & Company," Cheney was asked whether he and Obama, a Democratic presidential candidate, have discussed their ancestral link.

"Cousin Barack?" Cheney said. "No, we haven't — haven't had the opportunity to talk about it."

Lynne Cheney, the vice president's wife, told MSNBC last week she uncovered the long-ago ties between the two while researching her ancestry for her latest book, "Blue Skies, No Fences."

The vice president said he was unsure about bringing it up with the Illinois senator.

"Well, I didn't know whether that would help him or hurt him, so I thought I'd probably stay away from him," he said.

Obama is a descendent of Mareen Duvall, said Ginny Justice, a spokeswoman for Lynne Cheney. The French Huguenot's son married the granddaughter of a Richard Cheney, who arrived in Maryland in the late 1650's from England.

The vice president's full name is Richard B. Cheney.


You know you're in red neck country when a man introduces his wife and his cousin, and there's only one woman standing there.


You might be a Redneck if you consider dating second cousins 'playing the field'
