Happy birthday to my little brother Joey. He turns 43 today. We have always had a special bond together. As kids we would play a lot together. Both of my older brothers had went into the Navy by the time he was 7 years old and a year later our mom died and I think that forced us to be even closer. He has turned into such a great adult. The picture of me and him (to the right) was taken on my 12th birthday in 1981. I loved picking him up, can’t do that any more. Ha! The pictures were taken at our house on Wilson Street in Hobart.
The picture below is of Joey on his 4th birthday in 1981. He had such a great smile. Mom made the best Angel Food cakes and the one she made for Joey’s birthday appears to be huge! But I think it was more due to the fact that Joey is little. 🙂 Again, happy birthday to my little brother.
