My big brother, Kenneth Stephen Mabry was born on
June 28th, 1949. He turns 62 years young today! Happy
Birthday to you, big bro, and many, many more! I love you!
There's no other love like the love for a brother.
There's no other love like the love from a brother.
Our brothers and sisters are there with us
from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk.

Terry snapped these sunrise pictures on our last day at Orange
Beach. Unfortunately our house faced the south, so the sun didn't
rise over the ocean, but these photos are beautiful!
Our beach house is the green one in the middle.
This is my favorite shot that Terry took that morning. Sunrise
through the high rise that was being built near our beach house.

I love Pelicans! They're so much fun to watch. I took this
picture near Ft. Morgan in Gulf Shores, AL on our vacation.
I especially love the Pelican on the right :0) Makes me laugh
everytime I look at the picture.
