So That's Where I Get It From

Surprises: My long-lost cousin called from New York!!

Filed under: My Cousin Heather, SURPRISES! — Tags: , , — rootsresearcher @ 3:37 pm

ooooh Wow, my cousin Heather just phoned from New York, but I missed her!!  I didn’t get to the phone in time, so she left a message and suggested I call her or she will phone back.  Buuuuuuuuut, she didn’t leave her number!!!!!  😦

It must be the 1970s or early 1980s when we last saw each other and last spoke to each other, so I was absolutely thrilled to find the message was from Heather.  I would have phoned her back straight away but …

I’m really hoping she will call back today.  I’m sure we will be having a terrific chat about things, I’m sooooooo looking forward to it.

I mentioned Heather and there is a photo in my March 7 post for the Women’s History Month – Fearless Females theme.  Perhaps it’s long-distance telepathy that made her get in touch today?  🙂



  1. What a shame you missed the call. Do you have the facility to dial a number and see what the last number was to call? then you might get her number, assuming the phone hasn’t rung since!

    • Hallo Julie, At the time I checked to see if the number was left, but it wasn’t!! I’m not sure if an overseas call would register though anyway. I’m pleased to say that Heather did phone back and it was great to start catching up on everything. I’m delighted to have found her again after losing touch many years ago. We won’t lose touch again!!

      Kind regards,

  2. Hi Christine, That is good she phoned back and you have re-established contact.

    • Hallo Julie, yes it’s great!! I was a bit worried if Heather would phone back that day or not and I had no way of contacting her. Still, she did phone again and I’m so very pleased about that. Now we are going to have monthly telephone chats so will be catching up on our missing years. 🙂

      Kind regards,
