Yesterday my not so little brother turned the big four oh. I don't know how it is with other siblings, but for me the landmark birthdays are far more significant when they happen to my brother. Most likely because I realize that I'm even older than that.
This year it'll be a double dose because not only is my brother turning 40 our mother will be 80.
So I'm posting a big hug for my brother. The picture is from 2002 and that's Nate giving his uncle a great big hug.
