February was a tough month because it was the one-year anniversary of my younger brother Jim's death. Jim was the second of my three brothers to die, so I've now lost two out of three (hang in there Fred!!!).
Here's a picture of Jim on one of his many visit to NY to see his big sister. Jim is on the far left in the Chevrolet hat. Notice how happy I looked to have my brother so nearby. Like I said, February is a sad, sad month.
Mixed in with my February sadness were a few moments of joy. On February 14th the delivery man showed up with these beauties...
and on February 18th (my birthday) this amazingly tasty fruit tart magically appeared in the refrigerator.
But overall I'm glad we're done with February and I'm looking forward to a much brighter March.
