#594: Birthday Blog for my Big Brother

My brother Tom is 15 months older than me
and way funnier.
This is him,
visiting Nantucket in the winter:
Big Russian Beachnik
(you have to say this in a Russian accent)
Alfred Hitchcock
Not scary. Not at all.

Visiting the lighthouse where my sister used to live,
her house is long gone,

But maybe the lighthouse is open…

Either Bigfoot or a Yiddish Berserker

Birthday dinner.
The lobster bites back.

I don’t remember what he was saying here,
but it was funny.

Blue eggs to match his eyes.

And a stuffed blue swordfish at the Take-it-or-Leave-it.
He and Tristan share bragging rights.

Biiiiiig pile of scallops, minus the muscle.
His smile is tentative, due to the smell.

A balancing act at Altar Rock.
Toss a penny at Brant Point, Tom.
We want you back.
