I'm on my way to Nowhere USA

Today is my sister's 40th birthday.

Rechelle, is my OLDER sister.

She's also my ONLY sister.

She has this one song that she wrote called Nowhere USA that my family loves to sing. We don't really sing it, we scream it. But, I won't subject you to that, it's a bit much.

Not, that anything is ever a bit much around here.

Happy Birthday Rechelle
You are my favorite sister
I love to make you laugh
and I'd help you pop a blister

Here's your favorite nephew, butchering your song.

And of course, here's me, butchering your song with a cuter childhood picture. Because, you know, I'm the younger sibling and I need more attention.

Happy Birthday Sis.

I already "sang" Happy Birthday to your sister on her blog...in Spanish.

I love these photos...and your song butchering...and blister popping?! ick. I have a younger sister who loves to pop anything on anyone...and an older sister who does the same. It's just not safe around them...

Anyway, great post!

Hi! I found you through MamaDB. I love these pictures of you and your sister. With that kind of energy and joy for each other, what a legacy to pass on to your children of how one day you will not only like your sibling, but you will love the pa-too-tee out of them. Loved this blog. Thanks.

Ouch my ears.. is it safe to take the earplugs out? Ooops - what I meant to say was thanks for singing so wonderfully.

A really funny post!

April that was uh... er... that was... really beautiful.

Interesting song . . . the two renditions didn't really sound much like the same song though! Maybe you should post your sister singing it.

My cat was lying on the floor next to me when your video started playing. The cat jumped up and ran out of the room at the sound of your lovely voice.
