The way we were

That's my brother with me last summer at a family function. We have a volatile relationship probably involving 13 years and 3 days separating us. Plus he's an engineer and I was a writer/reporter. He has half a brain, like I do. Both would benefit a bit from each other's half.
So he is on his way now, arriving shortly after noon. USA Transfers and he'll be here into to hit a beach club, or take inventory of my property's deficiencies.
Whatever happens, this is going to be life changing. The last time we spent a week together, I was 5 years old and he was going away to college. I was learning to read and write Russian and he was done with dad's curriculum. Now, he barely speaks Russian and I barely speak Lithuanian. Thank God for English, because we really are from two different planets!
