Thursday Portrait.....



When my brother Mark was deployed to Kuwait about 6 years ago,
My nephew Kurtice came and lived with us. Him and Reese are only 2 years apart, and they are very close. Well, Mandy is married and lives abroad, Reese attends the local Junior College, and Kurt just enrolled in Airline Mechanix Trade school. My brother lives up north in Oscoda about 160 miles away, and the school is about 40 miles south of here, we have lots of room so I invited him to live with us again until he finds a place closer to his school. He is a fine young man, and he is no bother at all. I asked him to pose for a pic for old Uncle Galen's blog, and he agreed. But I think he is trying to tell me something.....I wonder?
Peace...!!!

I'm surprised that this is going over all your heads so far....

Is it too subliminal?

I think he wants to live with you for 10 years! or perhaps 10 pictures is his limit!

Dont you just love when the house is filled with busy, exciting youth!
Our oldest daughter moved out to live near campus with 2 roommates, her best friend moved into the spare room! Nice swap!
