I was the oldest of seven children, I have three brothers and three sisters. My folks had the formula for a balanced family--birth order--me, two years later brother, two years later sister, then brother, then sister, then brother, then sister, then brother. Today I am thankful for my brothers!
Oldest brother--cowboy, then insurance executive, then cowboy--loves to hunt and bake bread--perfect loaves of all kinds, oil painter in the tradition of Grandma Moses.
Middle brother--ex Navy, lumberjack, landscape business owner before he retired, grill master, air brush artist.
Baby brother--Arena riding horseman, business executive, excellent gourmet cook, watercolor artist.
Each is so individual but special. Each has added so much to my life.
