It is hard to fathom that my baby brother is 50 today.
But it does give me an excuse to run my favorite picture of anyone, anywhere, all-time. This was one happy kid.
And now, 50 years later, I finally understand his joy as he stood in a crib that would probably be recalled as a safety hazard today.
He was sending a message to his two older brothers.
“Look at me. I’m adorable. By the time Dad and Ma are through with you two, they’re gonna be exhausted, and I’m gonna get away with stuff you could only dream of. I may even total a car just for good measure!”
And so it was. Happy birthday.
