Please answer today's question on your own blog, any time until next weekend. Just link to this blog (or to this post) so I can follow the progress of the discussion.

The question is: Do you have an embarrassing relative?

Sadly, because of my son, my family think i am the embarrassing relative. :(

Cowgirl said...

Firstly, Casdok, what rot!!!! You are an Inspiration!!!!

RE: the question - not do I, but how many??????? Heeeeeeeck, yes.

And thirdly, David, I have tagged you to write seven random things (which you could do with both hands tied behind you I'm sure!) See my blog for details!

Shrinky said...

Ummm, I think I already did that post on my last blog..

Akelamalu said...

Mmmm a delicate subject and not one I could write about on my blog methinks. :(

imac said...

Not really But could be me haha.who cares then.Not I,lol.



Who's the Champ and winner then David-----F1..Told you.lol

Sandy said...

No, I don't have an embarrassing relative -- everyone in my family is great!

I sure hope they don't think I'm an embarrasing relative!

My Uncle Norman. Not only did he make a spectacle of himself at his wife's funeral...complaining over and over loudly about 1" of water in her plot, but a year later at my Mom's funeral, he yelled at the top of his lungs "Why can't I sit on the damn front row...I was her damn brother!"

No, he will never read this..he doesn't even own a computer. God love him and strangely, so do I.

Sandy said...

Technical question for you, David. When I visit your blog, and hit the back button, it never goes back to the spot I was before I read your blog. I have IE6 and Windows ME (I know, I know -- it's ancient) -- could that be the reason? Sigh.

Dave Coulter said...

Because my blog is somewhat tied to my work I avoid a lot of subjects (good and bad!) that I'd like to post about.

I would say my family has had it's share of struggles, but that has been balanced by a lot of joys as well.

If I have been embarrassed by any of them it might say more about me than it does about them! :)

Sniz said...

I can say it here...yes, all of them have been embarrassing at times, even me, but since many of them read my blog, I can't really write a post about my husband's embarrassing brother who cusses like a sailor in front of my little kids (he has kids of his own...I just don't get it) and calls people of different nationalities by all kinds of embarrassing, prejudiced, embarrassing terms (again, in front of the kids). And then there is his parents who have 200 plus dorky lawn ornaments in their yard, including an old store manikin that they got at a garage sale and put in a different outfit every few days, and gave my kids a piggy bank that was a bum that was mooning you and the coin slot was his butt crack. It kept "ending up" in the trash, but the kids kept pulling it out until it met with a tragic accident and accidentally got broken into several pieces with a hammer.

Rosie said...

It would probably be me David!

Katney said...

Doesn't every family?

Since I have established that, yes, some of my relatives read my blog, I will not make a post on this subject.

No the relatives that read my blog are not the embarassing ones, but...

lynn said...

Are you kidding me? Is anyone going to take the risk of being seen? lol. A couple yes but nooooo way for details!

Casdok made me very sad. I think i'd speak for everyone in that we are not embarrassed about you here, Casdok.

CrazyCath said...

Embarassing relative? *looks that no one is listening* Me? Teehee
I'll have a thunk (that's a technical term for "think") about this and see if I can come up with something...

David, I know we all put you up there on this pedestal thingy and I am no different, but I wondered, being a journalist AND photographer, if you could identify the photographer of the shots I have posted today? They have been round the web a few times so you might know who I can credit the artistry with. May be. Just a thought. Or thunk. Thanks. If not. No matter. It's clearly not MY work! lol

pat houseworth said...

?Do you have an embarrassing realitive? David, they answer is....Don't we all?

;)

LZ Blogger said...

Not any more... I've outlived them all! ~ jb///
P.S. David I know I haven't followed the directions here, but that's not the way I have my blog set up!

jillie said...

My Uncle Ted. Not only did he embarrass me but he scared me to death!!! Only as I got older did I realize what a kind man he was. He was a heavy smoker and drinker and he acted a little too weird...lol! I guess he meant well. God knows it's not MOI! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA....

And you??

Moosekahl said...

Do I have to list just one?

Misty Dawn said...

Oh I could really do a fun post with this question... However, I better not chance it... that relative may find it.

Seamus said...

LMAO - too embarrassing a one to blog about!

Ornery's Wife said...

Yeah, but they all read my blog...so I won't be posting! :-)

quilly said...

A better question would be, which of my relatives isn't embarrassing -- and that would include me.

Momma said...

I think I found a way to do this without being too politically incorrect. Hope you enjoy the humor!

Peace - D

KaiBlueCreations said...

..I'm the black sheep in my family, so I'd be considered the most embarassing relative!!!
luckily for me, I run the genealogy site for my family or I'm sure they would have pruned me by now!! lol
PEace, Kai

mielikki said...

My sister, EG. She is just a little physco....

quilly said...

Okay. I did this at my place. Come read it and cringe.

Sandy Kessler said...

I'm it !!

CamiKaos said...

as usual David this was a really thought provoking question. I answered it, it's up over at my place.

Jo Beaufoix said...

I did it too. You may be sorry...or is that, I may be sorry?

CrazyCath said...

Hi David -
Here's my bash at this week's. About me dad ;0) Daft as a brush but still me dad.

I think he'll enjoy the memories too. It's a long one again though I warn you....
