My mom and her sister are one year apart... to the day. They actually have the same birthday.  I can't imagine growing up with a sibling that close, but I loved hearing her stories of her and her sister and her friends piling into "the car" to go to the beach or a party together in Trinidad. She talked about how they would hide under the house and listen to the grown folks talk, and how they would walk to and from school together.
