Birthday Boy Turns 60

Eddie Dean Bradley looking so dashing and he’ll turn 60 on the 29th of this month.

It’s so hard for me to fathom that my baby brother will be 60 years old this month.  He is a very quiet and gentle man unless provoked.  He loves to joke and tease just like our Dad did.  Like our older brother he loves to dress up and there doesn’t have to be an occasion.  Dean lives in a long-term care facility about 60 miles from me and I go visit him every other Saturday or Sunday but usually on Sunday.  On Saturday his group is always out on a movie outing, concert, museum, parades, civic center venues, shopping or outings with their Special Olympic events.  Sundays are church and quiet time and he and I go out to eat wherever he wants to go and occasionally we visit some of the aunts and uncles that live in the area.

Tonight is the monthly Family Birthday Dinner at Merryfield where he lives and I’ll be attending to celebrate with him.  Next Friday night Eddie and I are taking him to his favorite restaurant to celebrate his birthday.  He’s been asking about it since the end of January.  He has asked for gift cards for his birthday so I’ll pick those up tonight for Hardee’s (because they have hotdogs that he loves) and Wal-Mart where he does his shopping with the counselors from Merryfield.

He’s a pretty handsome dude, don’t you think?!?!
