wordless Wednesday- sibling nostalgia

My little brother Gerard celebrated his birthday the other day; he turned 50! Today is my birthday (that would be more than 50). Anyway as old-er people do from time to time ;0 I was  feeling a bit nostalgic so I pulled out some old pictures; here's one of my favorites of us together.

I should have found some wood to knock on

Are you superstitious?

In the interest of full disclosure I should tell you I was born on Friday the thirteenth and regardless of the interesting timing of my birth I've never been a particularly superstitious person.

I was trading e-mails with my friend Anne who is the author of the blog Is Anyone There? In my e-mail I had mentioned to Anne I hadn't been sick in some time.

Now looking back I regret not doing something; like knocking on some wood.

I'm rethinking this whole superstition thing, darn glass coffee table!

I have been sick with the most horrible cold this entire week.

I've been in bed coughing, hacking, sneezing, wheezing communing with my sinus' that feel like they want to escape out of my ears if that were only humanly possible.

 Can you say the word "phlegm?"

Truthfully I'm still not feeling all that great after a week so I'm not going to push myself hence my absence from my blog and yours.


On Friday I'm taking a very early Amtrak to New York to attend a wedding and to celebrate St Patty's with my family.

Since I am so terribly behind on blog life in general I thought I'd spend my six hours on the train catching up on all my visiting and commenting.

Thanks for being so understanding that I haven't been to visit you.

See you Friday if not before then.
