Today, June 30, is my brother's birthday. Born in 1956, he was like a second family for my parents. There had been 4 girls and the youngest was 14. On the day that Kelly (my brother) was born, I was in Europe on a 3-month university study-tour scholarship. To be more precise, I was behind the Iron Curtain in East Berlin! I just dug our the copious notes I kept about that trip. Some day I must write a memoir...
Actually, this has been a landmark week for key dates. June 27 was my father's birthday (he was born in 1904 and died in 1977) as well as my sister's. And last year on June 27 my son was married - in Hawaii.
