I Googled My Uncle Ross

That's why my mama said I had legs like the other side

It's been a ver rainy, dreary, reflective weekend. I was jotting down the most memorable experiences I had during my childhood. One of the saddest was meeting my father's family. (NO, this isn't another sad love song) I was about four years old. The long ride to Indiana at Christmas time was confusing, where were we going and Why.

We were traveling To Anderson, Indiana to visit the "other side" for the first time. Mama had three boys when she met my father and then there was me and my sister. We were crammed in a station wagon like the Brady Bunch taking turns sleeping. It wasn't long before I was ready to come home, I would rather be in the car.

I can't seem to remember much about the actual visit,  the chimes up the winding stairs that looked like it belonged in a church. I do remember my Uncle Ross, he was quite a show off, but good.  Very good, I just didn't realize how good.  He loved Karate.

I haven't seen my dad since I was 8 and we never stayed in touch with the family. They just pretented we didn't exist. "I told you not to ever date a women below the Mason Dixon line, boy".

So I decided today to Google my Uncle Ross. I had heard though the years we was an accomplished boxer, as well as martial arts and Karate. It wasn't until I googled him until I realized how good. My Uncle Ross on utube! lol.

This is my father's brother.  I don't know him personally, but it's wierd how we both love boxing.   He can box but I like to watch!

It's always interesting to see our extended relatives as real people instead of some single dimensional person.

Dori, Ross.....

Tom Scott is alive, somewhat well, and as cantankerous as ever.

I'm just a friend who stumbled upon this while, you guessed it, Googling Ross Scott Karate.

I'll show him this site, Dori. And your email, Ross.

He'll be in touch by tomorrow. No BS, this is real. :)

He lives with me. He's asleep right now. All is well.

I want an autograph, Ross. ;) Tom will give you the address and phone # here tomorrow.

It's unusual for me to do a good deed. Hope I helped.

thinking out loud,

I would definately embrace a relationship with my uncle. He is blood, and the similarities are uncanny. As it turns out my Aunt was a writer and an Editor. I could just keep on and on. It is very emotional for me. Thanks

fortunerep: Sometimes things just happen for a reason. As a boxing fan, you should be proud. As a family member, that's for you to decide. Good luck.

fortune - when I google 'frogdropping' all that comes back is a load of dross :)

How great that you have some 'cool' in your family. I'd google mine but the ones I know already are idiots and the ones I don't are Burmese - dead - and very hard to pin down. Even google's not THAT good!

Wow BP, Louie Armstrong is cool!! I am German and when I seen your pic I said, she is either Russian or German because of your distinct features. It really is a small world.

I am going to try this. I know for a fact it won't come up like this lol. If my grandfather were alive he would appear. My family are Russian, my grandfather was a pianist who played around the world professionally. He actually jammed with Louie Armstrong and lived next door to Yul Brymer in China.
