Little Brother, Advocate For the Elderly

Little Brother when he first wakes up...how do guys do this?  He's so cute. And yes, that's his sock in the background.  Looks like he slept on the couch last night.

Little Brother (LB) called Friday night and begged to come stay the weekend.  (He always gets his timing just right!)  I picked him up at Whataburger, where he had just finished a double Whopper with bacon and cheese.  It's so good to see him! We then went to meet friends at the new Chinese/Japanese/Thai restaurant, Ginza.  


There, LB ate Sesame Chicken.  While we were there, we also picked up an entree for ThatManILove, who was stuck out in the field and hit the house around 10 p.m.  Whereby, LB sat down at the table with ThatManILove and finished off his take home box of sesame chicken.  The kid is a bottomless pit, I swear.  He cracks me up.  And he's tall and skinny...I don't know where all this food goes??


After the field trial yesterday, we stopped by  my brother Scott’s Auction House in Big Spring to see what he would be selling at his auction on Sunday.  An auction house is full of adventure for a 12 year old, just saying.  LB met all of Scott’s helpers, two of whom are disabled and are on electric scooters due to their ailments.


LB poked around, asked questions, and generally entertained himself for an hour just by snooping.  We were about to leave, and LB discovered a couple of electric scooters.  One wasn’t charged - but one was in full operating order.  LB ran to Scott, and asked permission to ride it, which Scott gave, grinning.  Everybody loves LB.


LB carefully rode around for a while, then  came back to where we were all congregated, and starts talking to Scott’s helpers again.  While doing so, LB backed the scooter professionally into its original parking space.  Everybody’s watching, and enjoying him.


LB turns off the scooter, and stands up, grinning like a cheshire cat, and says loudly, “Wow.  Now I know how elderly people have fun.”


He really means it.

My son eats like that and he's six. I'm dreading the future.

I need to get me one of those scooters.

I've got some catching up to do. Is LB your little brother or what? I've got a 14 year old and he will eat 2 pkgs of Ramen noodles just before we go out to eat because he can't be filled, ever. That boy is going to break me just feeling him.

Good grief! All I had to do is read your sidebar to answer my own question. NOW I know who LB is. How cool is that, that he's got such a loving family to love him?? I think I might cry. dammit

Secretly I have the same appetite size of Little Brother. I try to keep it under control.

My kids go in waves... it seems like they have endless energy and just graze around and then they'll eat like, ahem, heifers for days and not get any bigger.

Why can't MY metabolism be like that??

Michelle said...

LB is one lucky dude!!!

To have you around to teach him cool stuff!!! To have you around to feed him!!!

SWEET!!!

Janie said...

Heinous - when I find us a scooter deal, I'll let you know. Probably two for one would be a great deal, huh?

OtherJanie - Let me tell ya, girlfriend, he has two families who love him very much - his own, and ours. We consider Little Brother's family our family.

Amelia - you'll look SO cute doing so, as well! You may have to get 4wd for the feedlots, though.

ComedyGoddess - I won't tell. Burp.

Amy - I so understand, heifer.

Michelle - I'm not so sure I teach him Cool Stuff. sometimes I wonder. ;)

scotte said...

Well, I guess I should of been reading this blog. I guess my hearing is gone too. I heard LB to say "Now I know how the elderly have fun"
My guys are both saddened and amused at the thought of being elderly tho. I guess to LB we all are.......
