Well.....Grey street Carlton does seem vaguely familiar to me. I'm not sure though, indeed it seems like years even decades since I resided there. I seem to recall I had two fairly selfish older brothers who hogged a spacious front bedroom at that address in the sixties, while the rest of the family (5 others in all, including mum and dad) shared the smaller 2nd bedroom. Nevermind, I got my revenge after the residence in question was extended and later the two brothers in question ended up residing elsewhere in the late seventies and early eighties - leaving me with an enormous 'bachelor pad' of a bedroom all to myself. It would be interesting to hear your perception on such historical events.

Seriously though, these two brothers have inspired/influenced my own life more than anyone else I had contact with during those formative years. Their example was steadfast; their generosity magnanimous and their patience with me - exemplary.
Indeed such brothers are to be treasured.
