MORE THAN ST PATRICK'S DAY


My blog is decorated for St Patrick' Day but my heart is decorated for a birthday party. Today is my big brother's birthday. He is five years my senior and I've been taking two steps to his one to keep up with him all my life. This picture is the only photo where he showed any mechanical inclinations. However now in his retirement years he has picked up where he left off in the photo. He is fixing all kinds of things and still helping friends, neighbors, strangers, anyone in need.


Once in a while he will call me, but it is usually only his butt calling. Now that's a story for another day.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR BROTHER, ONE OF THE TRUE IRISH, love you!


HAPPY ST PATRICK'S DAY TO THE REST OF THE WORLD. MIND YOUR MANNERS AND NO PINCHING ON MY BLOG. IT'S GREEN.
NEWS FLASH: Tomorrow the Golden Comets are coming!

  5. Annie,

    Happy Birthday to your dear brother. I wish him many more happy, healthy years. The photo is delightful.

    Love your green blog, so no pinching can be done here.

    I'm glad the Grandkids are spending some time with you. Be sure to let me know how the stories turn out.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day.

  9. Oh the joy of having a big brother. I miss mine more than I ever missed my parents after they passed. When I was in 3rd grade and my recesses were made awful by the kids taunting me for being "fat", my 13 year old brother skipped school and rode our horse to my grade school, right up onto the playground. He looked SO BIG and menacing on that horse, as the bullies stared up at him that they never bothered me again.
