Lynn’s Recollections and Reflections #32

Something Else that Was Happening in 1993

Sometime after Keith and I got married but before Annie was born, my ex got remarried. He got married to someone whose father belonged to the same country club as him. I don’t mention wives when I speak of this country club’s members because women were not allowed to be members.

Having grown up in that environment and everything that goes along with it, she was a much better fit for him than me.

Why Am I Telling You This?

The reason that this has any significance goes back to Recollections #12. Remember that I mentioned that the gynecologist who delivered Kenny would come into play later in my story?


The girl that my ex married is the daughter of my gynecologist. Once they were married Kenny was this man’s step-grandson. Kenny called him Grandpa.

Is it just me or do you also find this weird? Initially, it was creepy to me. Now I just think it’s funny.

The End

That’s it for this week. Short and not so sweet! No relevant pictures are available 🙂
