Dear Auntie Linda, My husband is seventy-four and I am sixty- eight. We are retired Military. We built a house near our only daughter’s family. at their home in the mountains in Virginia just two years ago so our daughter could help us out. Now her husband has taken a job in Miami and wants us to buy a houseboat to dock near them. We don’t think that’s a great idea. My husband has Parkinson’s Disease and I have Diabetic Neuropathy. He is a good man and I don’t want to make him mad. Need Help
Dear Need Help, I’ll be generous here and just say your son in law is out in la-la land. If I were more critical I might say he planned to hornswoggle you out of a houseboat. I believe if I moved to Miami, I’d invest in a nice condo and keep my business to myself.
Dear Auntie Linda, My mother brought me a special cheesecake. I offered to share the the last piece when she came over one day and she refused, but when I went in to get it later, she’d slipped back in and scooped the whipped cream off the top, ruining it. Why didn’t she just take it or leave it? Messed up
Dear Messed Up, I guess she had gifter’s remorse or thought you were blind? Auntie Linda
