My Brother Is Not A Supermodel

Well, it's Friday the 13th. And, it's my brother's birthday today.

Since I usually publish my posts from work, I don't have a picture of my brother saved on this computer. It is, after all, my WORK computer. You, as my friends, would never guess that since I seem to squeeze in time to do this while I am here. Anyway, I thought I'd just see if I could Google up a photo and post it.


Friends, if you have an unusual last name, you don't know what you'll get, but let me show you what I found when I entered my brother's name:




Believe it or not, this Victoria's Secret Supermodel is unquestionably a relative. My maiden name (and my brother's last name) are the same as hers. It's so unusual that if anyone has this name, we ARE related. However, make no mistake, Selita is not my brother. So, you can rest easy there.

Back to my brother...today he is 44. I wish I could give him all the credit possible here, but this is a post, not a book.

My brother is the youngest of the 3 of us. I'm the oldest, then my sis, then my brother. We are fortunate to be so close. I count my brother and sister as my dearest friends - completely aside from being family.

My dear brother has always been there for me. I have never, ever had a crises that he hasn't been my rock. Weird things would always happen when my husband was out of town - I got two flat tires at the same time - guess who saved me? Another time that Jerry was out of town, our aquarium pumped all it's water out onto our brand new wooden floors... guess who helped me clean it all up, save the fish, and tote that great big aquarium out of the house? Oh! and he also had a commercial-sized dehumidifier which saved my floors. He didn't even know where he got the darned thing - it was in his garage. Magic!

That's just a couple. He and his wife made Jerry & I the godparents of their one and only daughter. A blessing to us.

Holidays? My brother and his wife always host them - they WANT to! God bless 'em.

So, happy birthday to my favorite brother. I love you.

You´re lucky to have such a good relationship with him. I have a brother too, but he´s much younger and we have never been that close. So Happy birthday to yours!

He probably would think it's the funniest thing, if you showed him your blog about he is not a supermodel. Happy Birthday to your brother. I am that close with my brothers.
