Happy Birthday!

Today is Groundhog's Day, yes, but, more importantly, it's my brother Josh's, birthday today!

I can probably count the number of times I've spent with my brother in the last ten years on one hand. It's sad but I live out here in Colorado and rarely get back home while he has moved back to our home state of Maine with his wife, Heather. So, as you can guess, we rarely get to see each other that much. But I do miss him.

I was having lunch the other day and saw one of the girls working there greet her sister when she came in for some food. Now, I know they are from back east, somewhere in New York, so it made me wonder who moved out to Colorado first and which one followed. And it made me think how much I missed my family and how nice it would be to just visit my brother during the day for a quick bite. Not some big, get on a plane, visit your family, plan to get a dinner together kind of thing. No, just a stop by, good to see you, I hope your day is going well, see you on Saturday, kind of thing. That would be great.

So, now I need to figure out how to convince my brother to move out here to Colorado. I have a feeling if he ever came out for a visit he would love it. I'll have to see if I can hatch some diabolical plan.

But, for now, Happy Birthday Josh! I hope you have a great day!

It's surely a little difficult to join when you live in a so much wide country as United States ! (: o

I'm just thinking it could be a very nice topic for an OilCanDrive song..... :)
