Default Surprise

Is there something about yourself that nobody knows that you would like to share ?

In 1994 I was knighted and in certain circles I am addressed as Sir followed by my name.

What really a surprise is a good friend of mine's aunt is a cousin of the step mother of the person who's grandfather knighted you.

And they went on to become the leader of the Tailor and Shoemakers Union in Poland (and later went on to have an illicit affair with Lech Walensa); the friend of mine's aunt, not the cousin of the step of the step mother of the person's grandfather.

I have had lived an ordinary life and don't have any events that would surprise anybody.
It has been an interesting journey and I have been in quite a few places but nothing of interest to anyone other than myself.

My mom and dad might be related. I was doing my family tree. My dad is from Madiera Island Portugal and came here when he was 17 years old. My mom's grandfather and grandmother came to Hawaii from Madiera Island Portugal as well. My grandmother was one town over from my dad's village on the west. My grandfather was one town over from my dad's village on the east. So I might be my own aunt. I was wondering where I got the webbed toes and hands from.

One of my cousins is into geneology . My ancestors and Kuki's hail from the same country and I believe that I have relatives with the same surname as Kuki .
(Kuki reads this and immediately changes his name legally)

You never know exactly what happened a few generations ago.
