So sorry you lost your Mum, TL.

Dad left us awhile ago, but he was much more user-friendly.
Sorry to hear about your dad.

My mum was 95 and it's been 2 1/2 years. As the minister said at her memorial, "We are not relieved that Elisabeth died. We are relieved that she stopped dying." It's been about 10 years since she was compos mentis enough to really be my mum.

PF, I once told my daughter that every 20 years is considered a new generation. I too was 17 when my daughter was born. She thought for a moment and then looked at me. "Don't think you are going to start hanging around with me and my friends."

"Don't worry daughter, that is the last thing I want to do."

My sister has just called and once again has asked if either me or mum can take her 1yr, whilst she watches her 11yr son in Athletics. And she wants her dropped off at the ice-rink, as my nephew skates.

How much notice did she get from the school. Surely it doesn't use up two brain cells to think, she may need child-care.

But then she only does think about herself, which is why I've stopped helping, unless its school or work. But Athletics is after school, that my nephew has stated he doesn't want to do. So in my book doesn't count.

Vent over with

I'm Sorry! That is funny.

LOL! My parents were always my best friends, except for about 3 weeks when I was 14.

Not here. My mum was 35 when I was born and my dad was 41 and I'm the oldest. They were also immigrants.

When immigrants leave "the old country", they freeze the culture at the time they left. Made for some very old fashioned ideas. It got some better when my mum started spending some time in "modern" Denmark and a whole lot better when we moved back to Denmark.
