My brother Jeff,with the moustache, arrived for dinner with my S-I-L Marla on gorgeous Saturday afternoon. Tuvia always loves a good party and after a period of getting to know Jeff, feels comfortable with him. So we, as a 4some get together once a month.
I can’t help but remember what it was like growing up with Jeff college we were Jeff was my younger, very annoying brother who was always joking and most of the world loved having him around. NOT ME!
We spent our childhoods waring with each other most of the time and I’m sure my parents wondered and prayed it would stop. Logically, as both of my brothers matured, started lifting weights and grew tall, much taller than I was, it did end.
And as the physically fighting stopped and as we slowly established our lives as adults and realized that our family anchor was worth maintaining and celebrating we made peace.
So as I enjoyed my weekly cheat meal of ribs, vodka, french fries, Ben and Jerry’s etc… Jeff and Marla and Tuvia joined me for a night of friendship.
