Dear Queenie,

  My cousins and I used to get together a lot but the last couple of years not at all. A while ago I found out they were still getting together, but not with me.

  Queenie, I really miss seeing them. Should I ask them why or just ignore them like they do me?—Left out


Dear Left out,

  Who used to plan these get-togethers? Is it possible that your cousins are waiting for you to set one up and if you do not, they think you do not want to see them?

  Call them and ask. At least then you will know the reason, and if there is a problem you will know what it is.
