Had to keep this piece below a secret until my eldest brother and his wife received it in a large album celebrating the two of them on the 50th anniversary of their wedding.

How fortunate can a person be to have a sibling old enough to be one's own parent?

How about doubling those odds with a sibling who bares all the positive qualities a person can have?

Now double those odds because one's elder sibling has a spouse of equal qualities.

What is that, something like, 6.8 billion to one odds? O.K., I rounded up slightly.

Those are immense odds, yet this is what I have in both my eldest brother, G. Jones, and his wife of 50 years, PJ.

The two of them are giving, caring, multi-talented, whip-smart, good-humored, belly-laugh funny and have been a stable force with their "parenting" of one little sister.

I thank them for that and wish them both many more happy years together.

With much love and affection,
