My Brother, the Superhero
Today's posting is in honour of my big brother who celebrated his 40-ahem-something birthday this week. He is one of my heros, having served honourably for 25 years with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in addition to leading Calgary's ERT force for many years. He's also just an all-round wonderful person who has managed to stay happily married for 27 years, raise 3 terrific children into near adulthood and is always there whenever I need him.
It's nice to see that J feels the same way. Today while walking to school:
J: You know Uncle Phil is like a superhero!
Me: Yes, he's a pretty great guy, why do you think so?
