Brother News

My older brother Ben is biking up South America at the moment with his best friend, Sam. I've really been enjoying their trip journal and website which can be seen here: http://www.againwiththebiking.org/.
Because Ben has been gone for all the winter holidays and family gatherings, we created a paper mache version of him to fill the weird gappy feeling. While it's nice to have "Ben" around, he makes the dogs nervous and he's too quiet. Since Thanksgiving his health has deteriorated and he sits in a wheelchair now, with his head slumped forward a bit and his stuffing showing. Sometimes his hands fall off.
"He's so despondent" says Nick.
