Happy (belated) Birthday, ya redneck!!!

Yesterday was my brother Dana's birthday. Dana is only 18 months younger than me so I don't remember a time when he wasn't part of my life. At times he's been a bit annoying and he's always, well, loud :D but if I could have picked a brother I don't think I would have changed him much at all. He's very quick with a remark and hilariously funny at times. He loves to hunt and fish and is handy with cars (all traits the skipped right over his big bro). He and his family moved to Tennessee about 5 years ago and have made quite the life for themselves. Since that move I have seen his faith grow in leaps and bounds and I know both Mom and Dad are very pleased with the man of God he's turned into. If you would have told me 5 years ago that Dana would be asking me about going to Promise Keepers with him I would have just chuckled at you, but we are planning just that for this August. The pic below is of him and my sister-in-law Sherry and does a great job of capturing his personality. So happy b-day BRO!!! You know I love you!

someone needs to e-mail Dana and Sherry's church and let them know not to get him a bike for his birthday!

hehe..Happy Birthday! He's hilarious and a great brother-in-law! I only wish he and Dwayne could spend more time together. I find it awesome that he and Dwayne talk on the phone more than anyone I know. It's especially funny when they are watching the same game on tv. They call each other and literally say, "did you see that?"

Well gosh, I'm blushing! Thanks for the B0day wishes, sorry I'm a few days late, but I was outta town for the weekend with the family! BTW JC, don't forget you said you were gonna come to TN and let me take you fishing and get your arm broke, I don't forget promises. So don't make me come after you, or you will be e-mailing your church for safe sanctuary!!!!
