The relatives came

Now while that’s the title of a great picture book by Cynthia Rylant the kids and I have enjoyed many times, it also takes me back to a time when I was much younger. Unfortunately, we never saw our relatives all that often. After all, they were not only much older (as my mom was the youngest of three) than us, they also lived up in the small town of Dows, Iowa while we were down in the big city of St. Louis, Missouri.

Now why we may have been as different as city and country folks, I have to say that I never would have dreamed that Tuna and Seahorses are also cousins. Check out the article “Surprising Fish Cousins: Tuna and Seahorses” by Becky Oskin over at LiveScience . Do you see the similarities?
