Friday Photo Flash Back--My Baby Brother

I have always thought of my little brother as my baby. He is 6 years younger than me. We were always close and he was my best friend growing up. He just had his 40 something birthday on the 19th, so I thought I would post some pictures of him.
Here are the 3 of us kids. This was taken at Nannie's house. I think this is before we left for Okinawa so it was probably about 1966.
This is Billy and my mom in Okinawa. Notice the strategically placed book.
This is Billy and I in Utah. I believe this is at my aunt and uncle's house. I am holding my cousin Elizabeth. Not sure when this was. Probably late 60's early 70's.
This is proof that I was a mean sister and Billy was a good sport. This is Billy and his friend Scott dressed up in my clothes. This was at our house in Clovis. Probably the mid to late 70's. I really liked that dress that Billy(on the right) is wearing. Wish I still had it.

Happy belated Birthday to your brother!
I love looking at old photos and fun to see you as you grow...

My dad was stationed in Okinawa around 1960 And was that Clovis, NM? I graduated from Alamogordo, NM.

Goodness! That is too funny that your brother and his friend both dressed up in your clothes! haha

Blessings & Aloha!

That is TOO funny that they put on your dresses....and even funnier that they let you snap a picture. Can you say blackmail? :0)

I am stopping by some of my closest bloggy friends to say hello and thank you so much for remaining faithful during this time that I have been so sick and, thus, unable to read and comment faithfully on all the blogs of those who mean so much to me. Please know that I do miss you all AND reading your blogs. However, most of all, I miss keeping in touch with what is going on in your life! I am hoping and praying that will change really soon.

In the meantime, I hope you will continue to stop by and read what I am able to post and leave comments as you feel lead to. They mean more to me than you'll ever know!

I hope the rest of you week is truly wonderful.

Blessings,

Teresa <><

P.S. It is REALLY late and my hubby is in bed beside me, so I can't listen to your vlog. I'll try to do that tomorrow.
