Happy Birthday to my brother one day late

We got home from Paris late last night, have had a wonderful day here
on one of the most beautiful spring days in Toronto (Toronto does spring
well), but we have another big day tomorrow, and I am super tired.
I didn't get a chance to post this Happy Birthday message yesterday to
my brother, and I found a post from last year that says it all perfectly.

"I love this painting of my brother -- and no he doesn't look like this
now.  (As a freelance writer the long hair had to go.) But the painting
(which he owns) is one he posed for.  I like the exuberance of my
brushstrokes in this.  

In between sittings I'm sure we were drinking strong coffee,
laughing our heads off, and perhaps arguing -- something we do
very well, because we can switch the argument on and off at a 
moment's notice, and we still love one another like very good

Happy Birthday Andrew.  

Have loving your life day.
