The structure of John’s side of the family is quite simple – a brother here, a brother there, spouses and nieces – very easy to understand. Cheryl’s “family tree” however looks more like a bowl of spaghetti. Full this, half that, in-law this, ex that. Not that it really matters. Just don't ask for an explanation -- no one has ever been able to give one.

Give Cheryl's dad a blow torch and he can do anything, such as build the frame for our Koi pond bridge at our previous house.
