Mothers and Daughters

I'm pretty sure that every angle on the subject of mothers and daughters and the dynamics of their relationships has been covered, be it in a book, a movie, a television show, magazine article, etc. I highly doubt that I have anything new to offer on the subject but, I feel I must say this...

Seven (7) days and six (6) nights past the age of twelve is far, FAR, FAR TOO LONG to spend on "vacation" with one's mother and grandmother!

This is just one more small pearl of wisdom I have recently acquired to add to my modest but valuable collection. I felt compelled to offer it up to the rest of the universe. There is no reason good enough to put one's self through that particular kind of torture and agony. I must advise against it.

To those of you who have gone before me in this endeavor:

God bless you. If you made it back alive, good work. If both your mother and grandmother made it back alive, I raise my glass to you. If you're not in jail for homicide, hats off to you. If you are, I understand. If all made it back alive, no one is in jail and you are still speaking, I bow down to you.

To those of you who will stubbornly ignore my advice:

God bless your soul. You are and idiot. Good luck, you'll need it.

And to my three new best friends:

Jim, Jack and Jose,
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help and support along the way. I know I could not have made without you. You boys are the best.
