To my youngest brother Gerry, who turned something like 47 on March 20, I wish nothing but the best to him and his wife Kim and kids Joshua and Matthew.
Gerry was just a kid usually hanging out with me as we grew up. He always loved collecting insects with me as a kid and playing goal in our basement or outside, also as a kid.

He became a pretty good golie on skates, and we two always looked similar, except he he is well over six feet and I am about 5-10.

This above is Gerry's wife, Kim. Below, that's their oldest son, Joshua. He is a figure skater of note.

Gerry celebrated his birthday recently. BEFORE HE GAVE US THE FINGER.

  1. Happy B'ltd Birthday to Gerry!

    Best wishes for many more fun years to come.

    I have nephews who are taller than me now! And I remember when I used to babysit them and change their diapers! Now they're young adults and it blows my mind that they're grown up now.

    Your family gatherings look like a lot of fun. I have to say though, that turkey looks delicious in that Xmas pic with Kim! Those birthday cakes and the pizza look good, too! Now, I'm hungry.
