Today is my brother’s birthday. He’s five years older than I am and has always been everything you would want a brother to be … well, except perhaps when he used to lock me in the linen closet and make really scary noises outside the door or when he put worms down my shirt or pretended he ate the candy I had been saving or when he and a friend put on our mother’s dresses and crashed my birthday party … Actually he never did do any of those things … except the last one with the dress. Yup, he and David W. actually did that! Those other things (and a lot of farting stories) were shared with me by other girlfriends who have brothers and love them.
So have a wonderful and happy birthday, Terry! I couldn’t have asked for a better brother!
Happy Birthday to everyone else who is celebrating today!

With a happily blended family of seven adult children and, at last count, six grandchildren, life is full and time is short. Beginning with her first Kodak Brownie camera at the age of six, she has told stories all of her life through photography. Much to her surprise a few years ago, she began to write and has now published three novels, including two that are part of a six-book series set in the south of France. Love France? Love her work! Check out her website www.patriciasandsauthor.com She is particularly drawn to the rewarding friendships of women and the challenges many embrace once their families are grown. "It's never too late to begin something new," she enthuses. "As the saying goes, just do it!"
