Happy Birthday Little Brother

I am late in posting this Happy Birthday message to my little brother. His birthday was October 18th...better late than never right? This is my little brother Josh. We are 2 years and 1 month apart, but were 3 years apart in school. As you can imagine, we didn't always get along very well growing up!
I was the typical older sister. Bossy and annoying...I know he would tell you that plus a lot more. I always got in trouble for trying to be his mom, in fact I still catch myself mothering him. Now that we are older we get along so much better. I can talk to him about anything and he often confides in me as well.
One of the things that I used to do that he really hated was call him Mister Spotty Fisher. I have no idea where that name came from but he hated it. Once in awhile I still call him that and it doesn't bother him quite as bad now! We used to play catch together in the back yard all the time. Most of my favorite childhood memories include my little brother. I am so thankful that I had a little brother to share growing up with!
My husband Cody and my brother Josh are great friends. Josh was one of Cody's groomsman and he even caught the garter. We are still waiting for Josh to settle down and get married himself. He has a girlfriend right now that I actually like (I am very picky about the girls he dates and normally find one reason or another not to like her-horrible, I know!). So maybe this girl will eventually be the one! I can't wait to have kids soon because I know that Uncle Josh will be their favorite uncle!
Josh is a lover of the outdoors. He is constantly hunting and fishing. Since the house he owns isn't very big, my parents have all his trophies hanging in their house. There is a bear rug, an elk, a deer, an antelope, a caribou and various birds. If you can't reach him, it is probably because he is out hunting or fishing!
This is Mutley, my nephew-Josh's black lab! Our dogs love to get together and play. I love my little brother so much and I am so thankful to have him in my life. He is a wonderful man with a great work ethic, a kind heart and a real zest for life. Happy Birthday Josh/Bubba/Mr. Spotty Fisher! Siss loves you!

That was such a nice story about your brother. I don't know what it's like to have a younger sibling because I WAS the youngest!! Yes, the youngest out of five. I'm sure your brother really appreciated you writing such lovely words about him. Oh, and that picture with the fish is priceless.
