How many people have - how can I say this in a Politically Correct way............
BUTT Suckingly CHEAP and barely-SUPPORTIVE RELATIVES??? (A little too PC maybe??)

  Anyone that has read my book would know that I come from a huge family.  I am the ninth of ten kids with many years between all of us - oldest to the youngest - and I have dozens of cousins and nephews and nieces, most of whom are almost my age.

  My family was shocked and thrilled that I wrote a book and initially said how proud they were.

  They then promptly bought a SINGLE copy of my book and have been mailing it across the country to each other!!

  There is ONE - very lonely - raggedy ass copy of my book being tossed around from COAST to COAST!

  It was a complete Woops and an accident that I found out. (Far too many cacklin' Hens and Hoes to keep that quiet. The men out there know what I mean!)


  Had I known they were THAT CHEAP ( I am over it now), I could have helped them buy a few copies.  I know times are tough for all of us!

  So I ask this community - (seriously, I REALLY AM over it -HA!)

How many out there have had a similar experience with their own family members???

 I know times are tough and money is tight, and I don't want to sound like a complete dickhead...........  Then again, I can never remember their birthdays so maybe I should buy them copies for their next Christmas present?    I guess we are even!

  They'll probably never read this or any of my websites either - So my wife and I will have a good laugh!
