I did it again....found someone I wasn't exactly looking for. I think in my next career I'm going to be a Private Investigator. Of course the Internet makes it a whole lot easier than ever before to find people, but you still have to know where to look. I like it because I don't even have to leave my chair. I often say that I can find someone, their relative or at least find something about them, like their age, in less than 3 minutes. This all ties in with my thoughts about how it's a Small World.
I was reading the death notices in the paper today and saw a woman whose maiden name was very familiar. I didn't know the deceased but I recognized the first names of her two younger sisters. One was a classmate of an old friend of mine that I dated in high school. In fact, we had double-dated (geez, how old am I?) a few times and I knew that sister's ex-husband. He had married, had a child with and then divorced a woman who used to live next door to Paul and me 15 years ago. Got all that? I didn't think so.
Doesn't matter. It's just how my mind works. So now I've got the current name of this girl I knew in high school and the town she lives in. With a few more clicks of the mouse through several websites I use all the time in real estate, I have her address, her current husband's name and age and a picture of her house online. I don't really care, don't plan to do anything with the info, just wanted to see what I could find. I found a lot.
Okay, so maybe I'm just nosy? But if you're looking for someone, you know who to call.
