Re: Thomas Joyce & Nora Flynn - Brooklyn NY
Hello, it's your long, long, long, loooooong, lost "cousin" Rick. I see you were off yesterday because of the Northeastener, it was a regularly scheduled day off for me. My wife Kathy was home too. She's an educator also (actually she is the principal of a Catholic High School in New Brunswick, New Jersey). Being the boss has it's privileges, but the pressures and strains of the job are a lot. But she loves it. If she didn't she wouldn't do it.
You know it's funny with names. I have an aunt Lynn (she converted in order to marry my uncle Tom. Their oldest daughter they ended up calling her Lynda, in order to get the priest to baptize her.
It's funny on the Joyce/Flynn side of my family. Witha load of cousins (actually seven)related to us from both sides, we have always been very close. The last of my Joyce/Flynn cousin married last year. My wife finally got a real dose of just how crazy/wild we are when we get together. Needless to say it was an unbelievable experience for her.
I wrote down your email address. I'll correspond with you via that from now on. Maybe we can put our heads together and figure out a connection, no matter how distant.Oh,by the way, according to my Aunt, are you ready for this. The town my grandmother's family was/is from is Ballinrobe. This could get very, very interesting (to quote Artie Johnson from Laugh-in). Talk to you shortly, cousin. Rick
