Brother and Sister
To the outside world, we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.

Last night when Bernie and I arrived at the house of our niece, Rachels for a Thanksgiving get-together, I noticed these pretty red bushes on each side of the sidewalk with just the hint of a rusty maple leaf tree peeking through, from the next street over.
I just KNEW that I would be getting some nice autumn pictures for "Ruby Tuesday"!
I THOUGHT I would be anyway!!
No such the luck though, eh?
Amanda, another niece of mine had brought her baby, Daniel over for the festivities, and he was all dressed in a little red jumpsuit, that was trimmed with yellow.
This little guy was the life of the party!
Here he is with his Mommy petting Rachel's Golden Retriever. He was having such a good time with "Daisy" that it was a shame that Amanda had to to convince him to come and sit down on the couch where his Gramma Gracey and his Great Gramma Golden were waiting to have a "four generations" photo. taken.[a request made by his Auntie who truly believes that such opportunities should never be missed!]
As you can see in this picture, the little red fellow was not one bit interested in the future historical value of this photo!
No, with all of his might he struggled to get off of his Mommy's knee!
Here is Danial, making his way over to the coffee table. The golden refection on the table seemed to have attracted him.
With determination, he eyes that coffee table and he is deep in thought as he contemplates what he is going to do!
Oh yeh! He knows a EXACTLY what he is going to do!
"Oh no!" Is he thinking of getting on to that table, at the risk of falling off that very table, right on to his curly blond head?"
"Oh yeh! Great Aunt Terry, and you can you just TRY to stop me, eh?"
[Oh my, what a mischievous little smile he is wearing!]
With a step here and a step there and another step up, he is making his way to his goal of mounting the table.
Ha!! Ha!!. There is Danial riding that mahogany surf board....riding with all of his strength away from Mommy, Gramma Gracey and Great Gramma Golden. If they want that four generation photo shoot so badly, they will just have to settle for a THREE generation one,that's all! This FOURTH generation boy just wants to have a little fun!
Now where or where has that little dog gone?Oh where oh where can he be?"
