Happy Birthday to My Little Brother at Age 42

A quick birthday wish to my little brother who is both far taller than me and not so young any longer. I haven’t seen him in awhile, but I’m sure he’s still pretty tall.

Circa 1973. Aren't we adorable?

This is one of the few photos I have from our childhood. The little stain is on the photo, not him (or his jacket.) I’ve carried this around with me since college – 20+ years.

This is more representative. I'm in the pink dress. Jimmy is in front pretending to be a zombie.
