Me 'n Ray then and Now!



Last year  ( around July '10)  I posted a photo of my cousin Ray and I when we were about 9 years old on our trusty vehicles. That was many moons ago. Ray is my first cousin, (our mothers were sisters)  We not only lived in the same house the first five years of our lives,  on "the farm" then next door to each other and in the same classroom in elementary school for the next eight years. We sat with each other through the mumps, measles, and had our tonsils out the same day ( do they still do that?. ) . through  all the  good times and  all the bad. We've travelled together and I don't think we ever had a serious disagreement,   oh did I mention he's also a Scorpio like me..   
  I can't remember a time when we weren't there for each other.. We are brother and sister to each other, always have been, always will be. He calls me 'the brat' ( of course that's NOT  true) and he in turn tries to tell me what to do. (of course that IS true ) We live just about ten houses away from each other even now,  and see or hear from each other almost daily .. He'll be having a fit that  I made him public, I don't care that's  why I'm the brat.  so now you know....This  photo  was taken about 3 months ago when we went to Orlando for the day.  I tried to upload? download? a bigger photo, but you all know thats not in my book of knowledge ! If I figure it out I'll repost it..
   Thanks Ray for all you've done for me!  ..
