Today is the birthday of my brother Garry T. Hansen, fka Garry T. Bogdanski. The initial “T” stands for Thomas. For my winter winter home, I bought a house in a “55 plus” community that Garry and his wife Lorraine had suggested. That 55+ community is adjacent to the subdivision in which Garry and Lorraine reside. That is why Garry and Lorraine suggested it — in order for me to be in close physical proximity to Garry, to enable Garry and I to foster the same close brother relationship we have always had, especially the very close bonds that we had when we were younger. The end result is that my winter home is about 1.5 miles from Garry and Lorraine.
So today, I yell out loud and clear:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GARRY!
