Please be aware that The "ladies" on the blog may be able to do the reverse of what I did, and find you here as well. Or they may already have found you.

Please, everyone, be careful about posting personal info.
Now I'm totally freaked out. I never thought that sharing something so generic as first names could be so dangerous.

PMing you now...

I'm sorry if I scared anyone. I was just being nosey. :

It was Abraham Lincoln who said that most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

Glad your cousin admitted his errors and you two can be friends again.

I don't know. I didn't ask about any specific comments. Honestly, there were SO many hurtful and damning comments by both him and the others on the blog that there's no way I could even begin to address each and every point.

Also, the blog dissapeared before I could read everything. Maybe that is for the best. Ignorance is bliss.

Anyhow, as to the mortal enemy comment my DH and I figure it has to be one of two things:

1) My cousin was just talking out of his you-know-where, talking to the herd and telling them what they wanted to hear.

or

2) Maybe his wife really didn't like me back in college. That was a long time ago and I can see that being possible. Looking back, she wasn't very warm towards me at that time but I thought it was just because she was shy and reserved. In retrospect, she probably didn't like me. Oh well. We've all changed since then.

My sister emailed me a link to some of the nastier parts of the blog and cc'd him too. So, once he checks his email he'll definately know that I know...

Well, I figured that this would resolve itself one way or another when I read this.
I think your sister handled it wonderfully!
I was going to suggest that you go ahead and visit and 'take the high road' when you did--not bringing it up, but seeing if he broached the topic or apologized, knowing, as he did from your sister's cc/e-mail that you knew about this.
How he conducted himself on your visit would have told you all you need to know about his character and intentions.
I'm glad that he took care of it immediately--hopefully it was just an immature, foolish lapse of judgement that won't happen again.
