My Brother's Birthday Card

Just to provide some relief from my Halloween cards  here is my brothers birthday card!

For my kid brother's Birthday:  I must say my brother does not remind me of Gus at all except he does love to play golf and is quite good at it! But I am a Gus fan and decided it would work! We celebrated his birthday at the lake and all my lovely siblings were there, more food than you eat and lots of tales of days gone by. Great fun!
