He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother

He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother

My younger brother has a birthday coming up very soon and I thought I would immortalize him with this tribute of things he has done that I think are cool, amazing or otherwise something I could not or would not do.

  1. Carved waterfowl from blocks of glued-together wood
  2. About 5 years ago someone gave him an early 70’s MG and he restored it to road ready condition
  3. Built 2 kayak’s from a kit, one of which was free from the company who sold it to him since they included incorrect components in the first one
  4. Can finish my sentences and has a disturbing similarity to my personality
  5. Bought a used racing bicycle, stripped it down to the frame and had it repainted a cool color and got graphics from the manufacturer to reapply after the painting
  6. Sleeps on the hard ground in a tent with our nephew’s proving he either is a better Uncle than me or insane
  7. Bought a camper-trailer and refurbished it (the ground might be getting harder or he might be getting older – or “soft”)
  8. Recently made a cupola with an electric lantern in it with an on/off timer for my older brother’s garage for no apparent reason and it is cool
  9. Bought a used, early 80’s Mustang and put a V-8 engine in it and tricked it out with a GT500 paint scheme. He drove it for a while then sold it to a kid and made some decent money on it. It could haul…
  10. Sewed a bicycle jersey in two-tone bright green and purple to prove a point

There are many other things I could add but as I read this short list of things about him, it could be said that he is the most interesting man in the world. Happy Birthday!
