Happy Birthday Cousin Dolly!

Earlier this year I started tracing back my family tree and I stumbled upon a Parton. Well, that side of my family is a bunch of mountain folk from the Kentucky / Indiana area, which is not far from Tennessee. Dolly Parton happens to be from round yonder so I checked out her family tree on a hunch. Turns out me and Dolly share a grandfather! Sure, we're 5th cousins a couple times removed but in the big picture that's pretty fucking close.

So anyway, I'd like to wish a happy 65th birthday to my dear cousin, Dolly Parton. She's one of the greatest country singers ever and a true American treasure. Maybe I'll get to meet her one day.
