|My brother as a very young man, just enlisted in the Marines.|
|Here I am, the oldest, with my sister, Robin and my brother, Bubba.|
|Here is my brother in Saudi - he served as a Marine.|
Desert Storm. Back then, with sadness, he knew we'd be back before too long
because they'd been forced to leave before things were "finished."
He was right.

a military assignment.
|Here's a more recent photo of my brother and his family.|
His wife, Mary and his three children...lots of fun going on here.
|My brother and the kitty, connecting.|
|My brother and my dad.|
Two hairy men, but dad is losing hair these days.
Good for him, less maintenance.

|My dad, me, my Aunt Peggy, Bubba and Robin|
|Bubba and his oldest son...the tradition of|
hairy men in the family definitely continues.
|My brother, in nature, where he thrives.|
Big Bend is one of his favorite places to visit.

Actually, all three of us kids, me, my sister and my brother...we all love the outdoors and can rough it with enjoyment. We grew up with a good portion of our lives learning how to rough it. We never went on a family vacation, unless we were camping. That's how it went folks.
|I love my brother, even if he is a big dork!|
Having a brother meant that I got to play with a lot of cool toys. One thing is for sure, the girl toys were not always as fun as the toys my brother received. For those of you with only girls in the household, check on the toys for boys section and get a race-car track or Legos or something else that's designed for a boy, you might find that toy to be a favorite. I still love pink; I still love all things cuddly and sweet, but it sure was fun to put on a pair of boxing gloves and do some damage!
Brothers, they can be awesome.
And mine, I call him "Bubba." He's always been my "Bubba."
