Default My twin brother.

Most people don't know I am a twin. We always did everything together,always had the same teachers. I'm the older twin by one hour. The older you get the less time you get to spend together. Kids,work life gets in the way. He doesn't metal detect, he loves old coins. For his birthday I made him a coin display.

BTW, speaking of birthdays...did you know the year you were born in plus your age equals 2017?
