Get Your DNA Here

September 12, 2017

If you have been watching tv at night lately

 

You have probably seen the commercials…….

 

 

“I found out I was 20% Native American….

 

 

I thought I was Italian but I’m actually German”….

 

 

(I find myself saying……

 

Ya vol herr Kommandant….

 

For no apparent reason)…

 

 

That is for you Hogan Hero fans…

 

 

Contact Ancestry.com and get your DNA results today

 

 

I was thinking…

 

This might be a great gift for my wife’s birthday

 

So I contacted the company and ordered 2 DNA kits

 

 

Wellllllllllll……..

 

The results are in

 

 

When people ask

 

So what nationality are you….

 

 

I would normally say Irish and English

 

My mother was 100% Irish

 

My Pop….75% Irish and 25% English

 

 

My wife is 50% Italian from her father’s side

 

A mix of Irish and Scotch from her mother’s side

 

 

When the results came in

 

My wife was shown as…..

 

38% Italian

26% Irish

20% Great Britain

6% Western Europe

 

What happen to the Scotch…..

 

Is that filed under Great Britain….

 

 

My results came in a couple days later

 

I am……

 

Drum roll please…..

 

92% Irish

4% Italian / Greek

2% Western Europe

 

 

Not even a trace of English blood

 

Or as they say Great Britain….

 

 

Hey hun….I’m 4% Italian

 

 

You’re not Italian

 

 

It says here I am 4% Italian

 

That means I am only 34% less Italian than you

 

 

That got her blood pumpin….

 

 

You’re not Italian

 

You’re gonna deny me my 4%

 

 

Well….I have had a lot of fun knowing the results

 

 

I still can’t believe….No English

 

But 4% Italian….

 

 

Those Romans really gotta around

 

 

 

 

What does your DNA say….

 

 

It may makes for good conversation…

Seems like only a few weeks ago

 

We were saying

 

Here comes summer

 

 

Where did it go…

 

 

I know I have been busy

 

But…..

 

Did I blink and miss it

 

 

 

There were a lot of great memories

 

Packed into a short period of time

 

Heck…

 

It seemed like we were just getting started and…

 

 

Poofffff….

 

It’s Labor Day

 

It’s…..Back to school

 

 

Fall football….soccer…field hockey

 

 

Don’t forget to do your Homework…

 

 

All eyes turn toward the Eagles

 

 

While the Phillies fade into the abyss

 

 

My Pop used to say

 

 

4th of July….Summer’s over

 

 

The older I get

 

The more I see

 

The wisdom in those words

 

 

Who knows where the time goes…

 

 

Just be sure to treasure the time…

 

We all have been given
