June 1st is my brother's birthday. He is 34 this year. Happy Birthday you old dog!
I haven't called him today or sent him anything - But I thought I would create a post (letter) is his honour as a gift. A crap gift perhaps.... But I am thinking of him.
I wanted to send a few quick words let you know personally what a fantastic time I had out in Rossland with you and your family this winter. It has been the highlight of my 8 month sabbatical so far, and I know it will still be the highlight after it is finished when I am back to work.
I really enjoyed playing on your hockey team and being an "Ice Hawk" with your friends. I can't remember if we have ever played on the same hockey team together... It was long overdue at any rate and I am thankful we got this chance.
I also really liked going skiing with you. Meeting you at the hill on Tuesdays while you were patrolling was always a highlight for me. I am really impressed by how well you handle yourself on the slopes.
Another highlight I can not, nor will I ever forget, is going for a run with you on Christmas morning in Vernon. Unreal!
Most of all I looked forward to the time I spent with Tara, Cole, Grayson and yourself. The four of you are one hell of a smooth operating machine. I loved taking the boys out on the GT SnowRacer, out for a walk, and even babysitting while you guys were out.
Anyhow it'll be too late, as far as I am concerned, until the next time our paths cross. Nevertheless take great care of yourself, that terrific family, and have a wonderful 34th year of your life.
