Made it to my brother Dan's house and I couldn't be happier. It is very difficult to explain how tremendously loved my older brother, his fantastically funny wife Sandy, and their two immeasurable well-mannered sons make me feel. A visit here is one filled with laughter, lively debates, shared fun in the kitchen and in the garage (local hangout).
There is constant thoughtfulness, occasional imbibing of spirits, and many moments that may seem unnoticed, but make my heart swell with happiness. Were it not for the cold weather, this area would be on the short list for settling down. I hope my continued journey sees me returning here often.
