52 Picture of a grill full of barbecued food

The cousins were holding their annual Fourth of July barbecue.  It was hard to believe that a year had come and gone since the last one, when they congregated here for the grilling, drinking, and the fireworks.

The guest list was different now too.  Anita wasn’t there, though she sent her love from New York.  Joe and Melanie were holding hands.  Mike, Tara, Paul, and Eddie all had dates who mingled about chatting.  Only Anna and Marie were alone, wishing their boyfriends could join them.

One thing was certain.  In the midst of all the change, the family circle remained.   

The cousins.  Original characters.
