When Cousin Johnny arrived thee months later, only two years older then Colter and five years ahead of my father, he immediately took the position as their older brother, an indistinguishable member of the family; a year later, when he married my Aunt Winnie, he officially became a Hobbes and an American citizen.  The three men, brothers, all wore their jet black hair waxed slickly behind their ears; hawk eyed and olive skinned, each had a lean, raw-boned build, a quick wit and an easy temper, though Colter Wayne remained the thickest of the three.
