Another Tribute to Another Big Brother


I just had to post this picture of my brother, Bob.  A while back I did a post about my oldest brother Arthur here.     This is my next oldest brother.  This picture of him appeared in his local newspaper.  He was greeting people who came to share in the free Holiday dinner put on by the Waterville, Maine, Elks Lodge.
It doesn't surprise me that he would be volunteering; he has a heart the size of Alaska!  A semi-retired entrepreneur, besides volunteering for the holiday meal at the Elks Lodge, he also delivers Meals-On-Wheels to the elderly in the area each week.

I say he's semi-retired, because he owned and operated a successful plumbing and heating business for many years, until he decided to retire and sold the business.  Not one to sit at home, he always has some building projects of some sort brewing.  I marvel at his energy;  he's a true inspiration.  I won't disclose his age, but I will admit that I'm 65 and there are 3 more siblings between us in age, so he's MUCH older than I am, although he doesn't look it.   I'm proud to be able to talk about this great person and be able to say, "He's my brother!"

I can see the resemblance in your smiles. Does he share your sense of humor? Tell him I take my hat off to him for being so active and donating his energy to good causes!

People who get out and help others feel better, live longer, enjoy themselves more than those who don't. Just look at his face!

I have no brothers or sisters so this post was really warm to me. I came here to your blog via Brenda. I love the name Eva, infact one of my hens is called Eva. Little Eva, there first every day for her breakfast!
