I work for Continental Airlines so I go on the Parkway, kind of say hello to my brother every time I go by.  My brother did have a great big hobby.  He loved cars, drag racing and Mustangs.  He was so good looking.  I remember he was cool.  He used to roll his cigarette pack up in the sleeve of his t-shirt.  He had light blonde, brownish hair and blue eyes and a flirtatious smile.  I loved him to pieces.  He was my big brother and I was his favorite sister.  He used to watch over me even when he was in Nam.  He had his friends watch out for me so I wouldn\\\\\\\'t get into any trouble or get hurt.
