Many Happy Returns of the Day

to joel_rosenberg. My big brother. For reasons that never seemed good and are pretty well uncomprehensible now, we didn't speak for many years in our young adulthood. Our respective kids brought us back together, I believe. Sharing parenting stories and many other things over the years has enriched my life greatly. The first time we saw each other, after resuming correspondence and telephone calls, we found we finished each other's sentences, told each other's jokes, used each other's catch phrases. On the plane home I smiled and said to my spouse, "We're Joel and Dale again." I think he said the same thing to fgherman.

Have a great day, Joel. I feel blessed to have you in my life.
