Bill Clinton

President Bill Clinton is my cousin. Here is a picture of my mother and my grandfather standing with Bill. Bill's mother and my mother were first cousins. That means that Bill is my mother's second cousin and my third cousin. Do you count cousins back that far? I guess you do if they were elected the President of the United States!

Bill called my grandfather "Buddy". After my grandfather passed, Bill got the chocolate lab and named him "Buddy". Bill and my grandfather were very close.

Bill and my mother still stay in touch with each other.

    No. Bill served eight years as Governor of Arkansas and he always had a Christmas Family Reunion at the Governor's Mansion in Little Rock. He continued that tradition and had a Family Reunion at the White House each year. All of my immediate family (Uncles, Aunts, cousins, etc.) went to the White House each year for Christmas. My mother also made a couple other trips. She slept in the Lincoln Bedroom a couple of times.

    Chelsea, however, is my 4th cousin? I guess that is too far down the tree to get an invite to the wedding.

    My mother was Bill's baby-sitter for a couple of years while Virginia (Bill's mother) attended nursing college. Bill and my mom are close but mom is the last surviving "Grisham" in Bill's family. I haven't asked mom if she got an invite to Chelsea's wedding. Mom is in her 70's now so she wouldn't have gone even if she had been invited.
