Today, I’m happy for Bruder.
He arrived last night to come and spend the week at the lake (for the record, this will be our fifth year with this vacation tradition). We all love him with a kind of easy ferocity (I know that sounds contrary, but it’s not) and I’m always delighted to have him with us.
This is a picture of Bruder and Bean, looking at fish in the lake in 2010. We call it the “zombie picture” because, well, they look like they could be mumbling “BRAIIINS” over the edge of the dock, don’t they?
