Ever since my brother came home, he has been out most of the time.  His friends missed him a lot and the lunch and dinner invites never seems to stop.  There were days he had to attend 2 dinner invitations.  He's already big when he arrived but now he is 12 pounds bigger.  He says, he's going to need help from dieting pills, which I think is true, once he starts working out again.  He is scheduled to leave for the states tomorrow and it makes all of us sad.  I hope it won;t take another 8 years before we see him again.
