How to mix cement in the family business.

Lug heavy bags of cement from the street to the back yard.  Empty them into a big pile.  Work together.  This is important.  We are a family.  Spread the pile of cement out just so.  Make a beautiful spiral in it.  Papa supervises.

Older brother's turn to begin adding water.  Fill up the spirals slowly.  Being patient.  "But wait, he thinks to himself, why am I doing this?  That's what younger brothers are for."

"Oh, alright, so there is a pecking order in this family business.  I can live with that."

"OK, that's more like it.  Think I'll have a bag of chips."

Meanwhile, the youngest brother is hauling the 5 gallon pails of sand in from the street to mix with the cement and make mortar.

Families.  Very interesting.

All happy families resemble one another, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
- Leo Tolstoy
