Happy Birthday to my Brother - The Big 50

Alles gute zum Geburtstag!

Late 1960s, perhaps 1969?

Early 1970s, perhaps 1972 or 1973

And of course the 1980s. I am sure my brother appreciates this one the most.

This is our hometown. Well, sort of – we lived in a couple of different ones.

With my son. I do not have a picture with my daughter because, well, they haven’t met yet.

But, what’s his name? It’s Friedhelm. No, I cannot tell you how to pronounce that, but it’s German for “peaceful man.”
Here are some famous namesakes:
- Friedhelm Funkel: A German football manager (that is soccer to my American friends) and former player.
- Friedhelm Blobel: Director, president, and Chief Executive Officer of SciClone Pharmaceuticals.
Famous people born on October 21: Kim Kardashian, Manfred Mann.

If you want to know what else took place that day, read it here.

That's precisely how I thought it would be pronounced. Nice photos, Alex! You may not want to hear it, but you look a bit like your mom, assuming that was your mom holding you as a baby. You make a cute baby too!

A bit? More like a lot haha. When I was younger, it bothered me. Now it does not. Martina was always tired of hearing she resembled us too. Must be a kid thing.

Very interesting! How do you get those old photos on line? I've always been told that I look like my mom too. Why is it that kids don't want to look like their parents? Well, if my mom had been Grace Kelly, perhaps I would have felt differently. :-)
