  1. WOW – Kelly I love this on so many levels!!!  Good on 'ya for introducing Vlogging to our group.  And thank you for reminding me Uncle Cleet is an ok guy… especially becuase sometimes I think I may be a little Uncle Cleet-y myself and I should give me a break : ) 

    I could watch you for hours – I think it is is time for Kelly TV!!!

  2. Thanks Tami!  I too can really relate to Uncle Cleet. And if I want to be ANYBODY in a room, it's an Uncle Cleet. Which probably explains why I like YOU so much!   What an awesome idea! Kelly TV! Wait….I already thought of that. Wait…..didn't I have an online TV show called "I'm Just Saying?" Wait. Yes, I did. Hhhhmmmm. When was the last time I did an episode?  Put that back on my list.        I love the idea of doing a little online TV variety show – which was my intent – and to later work in fun stuff like fake commercials, comedy bits, etc.  Just haven't had TIME! :)


    • I'd suscribe to Kelly TV!!!!  I'd put it on my Must See TV!!!  Yes, do it.  Love it and love this short story of Uncle Cleet – especially as our family is making plans to get together for Thanksgiving – I should send this out to all of them!!!

  3. Grandma Brown was my Uncle Cleet, and I so appreciate you bringing back wonderful memories and embarassing moments through this vlog. She was the epitome of a woman who lived out loud and gave my father the patience to deal with his own daughters growing up!

  4. I was deprived of an Uncle Cleet in my family!  If he existed then he really put a damper on himself which was the preferred way to be with my clan.  Tami, can I have some lessons in Cleeterotomy?

  5. Oh wow. I had several Uncle Cleets in my family. In fact I had a few AUNT Cleets I think. I wish someone had told me to pay attention to them early on in my life. But thank you for reminding us now!!!

  6. Like Linda, I have an Aunt Cleet – who I will be seeing over Thanksgiving.  I think I'll watch this again right before Turkey Day to remind me to let go of any judgement and enjoy the crazy wackiness that will no doubt ensue!!!! Thanks Kelly!
