Face to face - at last

I discovered a few months ago that I have a second cousin living in Stamford Hill (london). We spoke to each other over the string-driven modern type electric telephone, and seemed to get on well. He is slightly younger than me, with one less child, but otherwise a similar background and history.

He rang me yesterday to say that he was coming to Manchester for a wedding and would I be around to meet him. I wandered over to the hall after learning this evening and (amazingly enough in a crowded hall), managed to find him fairly quickly.

It was weird meeting someone face to face for the first time. We got on well, although it was sometimes hard to know what to say. We managed :-)
