Ah, father. You know, sometimes you just have to leave things alone, as you have wisely done.

I have a BIL with whom I don’t discuss things. He always sends a Christams letter with some dig at the end. I don’t read them, my wife does, just to remind me how far from reality he has strayed.

We just don’t send him one. At some point in a persons life a mental illness is just the way it is, and I’ve decided just to avoid it as much as possible.

Everyone seems to have at least one in their life. For me it's my mother. Mom's an "FDR democrat". I never say anything political to her and if she brings up the subject, it's fairly easy for me to change the subject.

She's my mother, she's 93 years old, I love and respect her, plus she might give me a whoopin' if I sass her.
