... the missing link ...

Utter silliness apropos of absolutely nothing ...

A while ago, back when we were both working, we conceived a curious notion - both of us, in our families, had an "Uncle Bob", and it seemed to us that perhaps in every family, maybe not immediate, but somewhere on the genealogical tree, there lurked an "Uncle Bob."

So we began, just for the fun of it, to ask around, and, sure enough, most people either had an "Uncle Bob", or knew of a Bob in the family who was an uncle to someone.

We ran into only one person who claimed not to know of anyone in his family who would fall within the parameters. The kicker was, his name was Bob and he was an uncle. Talk about the exception that proves the rule!

Peace.

To my knowledge, I do not have an Uncle Bob.  Doesn't mean I don't have one.....just means I don't know of one.

Mine was a Robert, and not just a Robert. We used his middle name too, said in one breath like it was one name.

I come from a huge family with nary a Bob in sight!
