Pack Rat

June 27th, 2008 · No Comments

I have a brother who is many years older than I. By the time I was old enough to remember my own name, he was already moved out of the family homestead and off into the big, bad world. He, however, is apparently the world’s biggest pack rat! I am just learning that the man has saved everything since the beginning of time!


Recently I made an utter fool of myself in his presence. I vaguely remembered seeing my first Nutcracker Suite Ballet when I was very young (it was on my exact birthday 1976), but I do specifically remember my brother giving me an actual hand-painted Nutcracker for that Christmas. The thing is, I always thought that my sister had been the one to take me to my first ballet. All these years that’s what I believed. Until my last birthday, when my brother sent me a home-made birthday card (which he is famous for) and attached to the inside the original ticket stubs to that Ballet.  

Stupid, stupid, stupid! I am an idiot!

So now the man has topped off his creative and pack rat ways by making a DVD of old pictures coupled with voice overs from approximately 1969 which he captured with his (then technologically advanced) reel to reel!

All I can say is the man is a genius.

As I am oft to do, in a conversation, I started making references to “B” movies from the 70’s and he picked up on every single one of them. He reminded me that it was he who took me to go see all those movies…

Stupid, stupid, stupid!

I hope you don’t mind, but this little sister (who ain’t so little anymore) is still in total awe of her big brother. Thanks for the memories even if they are all new to me!
