The Eckhouts – My Story…

Remember my “characters” from yesterday?

Well, here is MY story about them:

Uncle Aurther is married to Sandy but Sandy does not like being called, “Aunt” as it makes her feel old.  (BTW, Uncle Aurther is a terrible speller, his REAL name is Uncle Albert!)  Uncle Albert likes to hum along to Paul McCartney’s song!  When this happens, (Aunt) Sandy puts on her happy face and starts knitting.  (I’m so sorry Uncle Albert…)  😉

Uncle John loves to tell jokes such as this one…  Q:  What side of a cat has the most spots?  A:  The outside!  hahaha!!!

Jasper is Uncle John’s son.  Jasper plays a mean accordion!  Sometimes they play a party gig together.  Everyone thinks they are so talented!

Jasper is a bit odd with his big ears and all but Amy finds him very attractive.  They eventually meet at a Karoke Bar and fall instantly in love!  They are married in just 3 months by Jasper’s sister, Susie – who LOVES cats!

Susie has a kind heart and takes in MANY, many stray cats.  (Meowwww!)  Brian lives next door to Susie and he is allergic to cats – oh, dear!  But Brian thinks Susie is the “cat’s meow” so he buys stock in Claritin and becomes a very RICH man!  $$$$

Spot is one of Susie’s MANY cats.  Spot becomes a famous “light” in Susie’s life and with a “Spot-light” Susie too becomes very wealthy.

Eventually, Susie and Jasper meet and marry.  They are currently celebrating their 9 lives together (I mean anniversaries!)

May you find humor in your family tree!

Happy Storytelling!  🙂

The Eckhouts

Have you ever created an imaginary family tree?

I was creating this watercolor tree for another project but thought it fit well in this post.

Here is the Eckhout family:

I made up their names and could probably write a story about them – BUT!  I thought it would be more FUN to have YOU tell me about them!   :-)))

Hope you join in the fun and share your humorous stories in the comment section.

Happy Storytelling!  🙂
