1. I've never bought them in my life. Canada has Girl Guides, not Girl Scouts, and I've lived in an apartment for over a decade, so no one comes to my door to sell me things.

2. Granddad.

3. Maternal side: One aunt and one uncle, both living. Paternal side: One living uncle, one dead uncle, one living aunt. I also have seven more half-aunts and half-uncles from Grandmom's first marriage, two or three of whom are still alive. Never met any of them, though.

1. Nope. Haven't in probably twenty years.

2. Nothing. They were dead years before I was born.

3. Alive? None My Mum was one of 14 and my Da was one of 7. Lots at one point in my life, but none of them are living any longer. Tons of cousin, though.

1. Five boxes each of Samoas and Thin Mints.

2. Grandpa "First Name" for each.

3. Uhm... mom had 4 sisters, they each had husbands. So that started at 8 but is now down to 4. Then dad had a brother and a sister. They were each married. So an additional 4 that is now down to just 2. (So originally 6 and 6. Down now to 5 and 1.)

1. One time and it took them a month and a half to cash the check. Yikes.

2. Grandpa Don, Grandaddy AD, and Grandaddy Phillips.

3. Oh man, I lost count. If I count all the "uncles" that I had from when my mom's sister was married, I have an army.

1. I work for GS so...yea. Bought a few boxes.

2. Both of my grandfathers are dead. My mother's father I called Zeyde, which is Yiddish for grandfather. My dad's father was just Grandpa I guess. Didn't really address him very often. Sometimes it was easier to refer to him as Bob.

3. I have 1 aunt. 2 uncles.

1) Several times.
2) My mother's father: grandpa. My father's father died 28 years before I was born, so nothing.
3) 7 plus my aunt's husband I don't count as an uncle.

Poppa

1. Alas, I know no one with a Girl Scout in their family. :(

2. Grandpa for my paternal grandfather and Bestefar for my maternal grandfather, who lived in Norway.

3. Three aunts, and I'm not sure I have any uncles left. Maybe one. They are very old - 80's and 90's.

No, I almost never buy them, they're too expensive for what you get.

Both were dead before I could call them anything.

One of each.
