Rising Brother

Despite Lady E. being the center of our universe for the past 5.5 months, occasionally there are posts that aren’t focused exclusively on her. This is one of them!
This time, it’s about another person who is especially important to me--my brother, Stephen. He's been a part of my universe for 17.6 years now.

Stephen graduates from high school today. Even though he has been growing up far from where I live, our mom has been very diligent in keeping me up to speed on his development. She is never shy in describing many of the small details of what he is doing, all of which point to what a wonderful young man he has become. I just want him to know –and anyone else reading this— that I am very proud of him and wish him the best as he moves on to the next stage of his life. As he graduates to a new academic pursuit, and upgrades to college student V1.0, Naomi, Lady E. and I wish him every success and we look forward to seeing him again in person. Hopefully in a nice warm place at Christmas.(Hint, hint)

It’s an exciting time, Steve, my rising brother. Enjoy it. Suck up the gravy! And congratulations from all of us over here in Sushiland.

Addendum (July): the Real McCoy...
