I’ve been thinking about my family a lot lately. I’m not sure why, perhaps it’s just the time of the year. My sister, and one of my brothers live in the Toronto area but I hardly ever see them. That will change tomorrow or Sunday though, because my brother is going to come over and bring my scanner back. Two bonus’ there – I get to see my bro and I get my scanner that I’ve barely been able to use since I purchased it back. Yeah!
I have two other brothers. My oldest brother, who was almost 20 when I was born is turning 60!!! in a couple of weeks. I can’t believe that I have a brother that age. It’s always seemed more like he should be my parent given his age rather than my brother. He’s worried that he’s turning into an old man but I keep telling him that you’re only as old as you feel.
My final brother, currently lives in Vancouver. I say currently but I think that’s a permanent situation. He loves it there. He’s traveled all over the world for his work as a geologist. He’s lived in the Dominican republic, Africa, and even Spain. I think he enjoyed Spain the most of all the places he’s lived. He’s even talked about buying a property in Spain once or twice in the past. I don’t know if he was serious, but if he did I’d certainly try to visit his “villa” every once in a while.
As I said I’m not sure why I’m thinking of family so much lately, but I am. We’ve already had our thanks Giving here in Canada so the next big time for all of us to try to get together will be Christmas. Unless of course my brother from Vancouver happens to come to town for business- then we all try to get together for dinner.
I guess I’m just missing my family. Do you get that way some times?
