My ID Monday: Molly (Bettger) Rank — HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

March 8, 2010

Today we have a special birthday edition of “My ID Monday.”

I’m not sure what the perfect sibling relationship looks like but if it isn’t what I have with my sister, then I’m not interested.

We’ve been through everything a healthy brother and sister deal with including:

  • Sharing a bathroom.
  • Backseat on countless road trips (both good and bad memories).
  • Letters at camp, her’s were always encouraging and thoughtful. My letters to her were usually an obnoxious attempt to get her to assemble some kind of coded message that was usually written on toilet paper or a newspaper.
  • Playing “Willy the Worm” on our old DOS computer.
  • Visiting her at college — which was supposed to include me flirting with all her college friends, but the engineering school’s 12 – 1 guy/girl ratio quickly dispelled that fantasy.
  • Watching “Nick at Nite”  with strawberry milk in the black swivel chairs at Grandmother & Granddad’s.
  • Getting a note from her at a hotel in Barcelona.
  • Watching my dad walk her down the aisle.

Molly is now building a family with her husband Pat.  Their online antics can be found here.

It is so incredible to watch them love and discipline Graham.  Luckily I get to be the fun uncle who’s responsibilities include wrestling, singing, reading books and playing on the slide.

Happy Birthday Molly.  I love you.

(and I left my toothpaste in your bathroom)

Another 7 cards and some classic photos after the break.

Please email me if you would like to be a part of my collection, or if I currently have your ID card, write and give me permission to post it online.

    Oh my, but I have had some lovely haircuts over the years!

    Andy, thanks for your beautiful words. I noticed your toothpaste, and I’m holding it hostage until you come back – this weekend!

    I love you brother, and I pray that our kiddos have such great relationships with each other.
