The most precious gift -

Of all you have to give or share the most precious is your time. We took the time for the long overdue visit with my half brother this weekend. Due to no animosity or estrangement but just because we have never been close too many calendar pages have flipped since our last visit. Mainly I guess because of the age difference. It seems we only see each other as funerals and we decided it was time to change that. Anyway, we took the trip yesterday and had a wonderful visit. Stories were shared as well as photos of our father circa 1930's. It was a nice day as we sat and chatted with his 95 year old spry and whimsical aunt. Aunt Katherine poked fun as my brother offered us cake - "from a box" she whispered as Bill cut and served. If only I can hope to have some of her wit and energy. We left with hugs and promises to visit again and I think I will. Next visit I want to talk of antiques and auctions and get my brother's wisdom on these. Things I lost when our father past and I was left with no one to ask. A new chapter can begin......

Awww. I'm glad you had a nice visit with your half-brother. I'd love to see old pictures of Dud!

Also, believe it or not, your new link works fine! Refresh, refresh, refresh, I guess.... Or, edit and make sure it has "www", too.
