reasons I love my brothers

I have brothers who are 13 and 14 years old. Since living up the street from my parents, I have discovered some things about them that just make me happy. When we go to the store (they sometimes come with me and sit in the car with the kids so I don't have to lug the whole crew), I am sometimes requested to pick an item up for them. Now, what would you expect a boy of that age to request? I mean, like a normal boy. My requests? Soda and gum. How can you not love that? And, when I went down tonight to borrow some thread, guess what I found them watching? Now, Mom and Dad are out on a date, and they didn't know I would be coming down, so this is what they were watching for their own enjoyment. "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show" and "The John Bennie(?) Show". Yes, they do have a PG limit for movies, but, there are a lot more modern movies they could be watching. I love that they are so innocent. What great guys!
