Just to add, I may suggest my MIL tell Jennifer Nettle's maternal grandmother (no blood connection on this line - Jennifer's grandfather, my MIL's brother is deceased) about the Trisha Yearwood connection when she next goes to Douglas where Jennifer is from as they sometimes go to lunch together. Or, she could tell her (my MIL's) sister who lives in New York. Jennifer has or had an apartment there and they have had her over for dinner before. Jennifer's mom used to live fairly close to us and I know she called my MIL a while back to ask her genealogy questions, but I heard she's moved to Tennessee to help Jennifer with the baby.
My husband's side are all confirmed anti-schmoozers and wouldn't try to get in touch with her directly for ANYTHING. They figure if she wants her privacy so badly, good riddance to her. (My sister-in-law refused to go to her baby shower for that very reason!)
I also can't wait for the Jim Parsons episode. I guess that it will be the last one of the series for this Summer. Darn! I've enjoyed them all with the exception of Kelly Clarkston who really annoyed me!
