Is there a stronger bond than the one that exist between a man and his dog? With the exception of family it's hard to think of another one. Who else would sit there soaking wet, while his master was fishing, waiting for just the right moment, that look, that slight head movement that says it's OK boy come on out here. That's a special bond alright. But what about family? What about the bond that exists between siblings, that's a strong one isn't it?
Mine is, but then mine is special, being a twin makes it special, but hey who am I kidding, all siblings have that special bond don't they? What about Lionel & Ethel Barrymore, or Shirley McClain & Warren Beatty, then there are the Wright Brothers, the Marx Brothers, the Rockefeller's, John and David, and let's not forget the Symons brothers!
Yup, that sibling bond is a strong one ain't it? Unbreakable, indestructible, it can never be broken, from cradle to grave. We all know that old saying, friends can come and go but family is always family. You can see where I am going with this can't you? Something has happened, that bond has been broken and I don't have the answer. I'm not sure anyone does. Can it be fixed, perhaps, but it takes two and right now there is one. We shall see...
