he's not so little any more

As you may recall, I have two younger brothers. The middle one, M, is celebrating (or more likely trying to ignore) his 39th birthday today. I remember this picture of my brother and me being taken by a family friend, but I can't recall how old we were at the time.

Outwardly, M has changed considerably since then - a lot more nose and much less hair, for example. He's also several inches taller than I am, and twice as wide (which is saying something!). But that still doesn't stop me from thinking of him as my 'little' brother.

Happy Birthday, M!

Love the back and white photo !

I had a very similar haircut in the early 70s, look so odd now though doesn't it !

what a beautiful photo. I hope my two boys will give each other wonderful loving hugs like this in the future. Today the 4 year old was just screeming to the 4 month old; "stop gooing, I can't hear myself think!" hmmmm.

Oh Christine, I thought i was being really clever by ordering some toys on a german website as they were much cheaper than in france, everything was going well until they sent an e-mail saying I had to make a money transfer! So I sent an e-mail and they say I can pay online but I can't find the link??? Could you help me?? Here's my e-mail address tattyariel@hotmail.com
can you send me an e-mail and I can explain further, I just need pointing in the right direction.. Oh why do I complicate my life?? By the way, do you speak Danish???? I love all your photos, I could see the dark haired one was you :-)

I sent you a mail, Tat!

Sparky - thanks! I haven't heard from him yet how it went. I'm sure my mother made a big fuss as usual.

That's quite all right, Cathy! With that haircut, it's pretty hard to tell. :-)
