Whatchoo lookin’ at punk?
This is Preston and his best friend/cousin Ronin in Hawaii. I find this picture hilarious. Where do these wise guys come off with their punk attitudes and too cool for the Luau looks? Is that a Mai Tai Ronin is drinking? Typical wise guy style.
Cousins are important. Chris grew up spending almost every day with his cousins. I have a cousin up in Oregon who was always special to me. She is four years older than me and I fiercely looked up to her. I thought she was about the coolest cousin a person could have. I think we saw each other once a year, but it was always like we had seen each other just yesterday when when we reunited. She has bright red hair and freckles like Ava. She is sassy just like Ava also. Although my special cousin and I don’t talk much anymore, I do think that having close cousin relationships while growing up is a gift. My kids truly cherish all of eight of their cousins above every other kid in the world.
These two wise guys only have each other among a mess of sisters. They stick together. Aint nobody gonna mess with them. If these two were in The Godfather, this is what they would say:
Ronin: “Fredo, you’re my older brother [cousin], and I love you. But don’t ever take sides with anyone against the family again. Ever.”
Preston: “I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse.”
Until next time, the mothership is signing off.
