Long day at work,
Shelly & the kids are at ski practice.
I had a couple of Crown & Cokes and read the geocaching forums.
They'll be home soon, so I put a few brats on the grill. And JCM on the stereo.
I sat at the isosceles point of the backyard speakers. Listening to the Dance Naked album. No skeeters, probably the drought.
The song "Brothers" came on as I stared at the twilit sky. It's not too deep. But my head tipped back to look up at the outstretched arm of the jack pine above me.
Is that what its like to have an older brother? Sometimes protecting, sometimes getting in the way.
Anyway, climb up anytime you need. I can take it.
