Happy National Siblings Day, according to Holiday Insights!
Here are mine — big brother Walt Strosser, and big sister, Patti George. Thanks to my SIL, Kate Strosser, for that pic of Walt — “All Shook Up” — ahuhuhuh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Walt is not really an Elvis fan, but when at Graceland … I bet he loves that I posted this. I do like Elvis!
My siblings have gotten me through some really tough times in life. I am the youngest, and they gave me some great life lessons early — like don’t make Mom mad — bad things happen. And we all passed that on to the next generation of kids. Ha!
We don’t agree on politics and religion, but we all agree on one thing: Family is important, and we are Strossers with a lot of Walt and Arlene (my parents) in us — the good and the bad.
Claudia A. Evart started National Siblings Day to honor her brother and sister, who had died when she was young. So far, 45 state governors and former President Bill Clinton supported it. Here’s the info on Wikipedia. There is a Siblings Day Foundation, started in 1997 — it achieved nonprofit status in 1999.
Take some time to salute your sibs today. If you miss this one, Brothers and Sisters Day is May 2. Love to Walt and Pat!
