it seems that some family members have taken offense at my post a few days ago regarding the parental unit (AKA my mother). Let me just point out, for the record, that it involved a single family member who I do not want to identify and not the entire group. In fact, another family member has stepped up to the plate magnificently and without fail and for her I wish all the best in the world. Despite her own problems she came through within 24 hours with assistance, surprising the heck outta me and my husband – and for that we are very grateful.
the rest of them, well… I don’t respond well to blackmail and believe me – neither does my husband.
