    For years we all have contributed to Cody and his SIL and other family problems. The problem lies with his wife who refuses to hurt little sis feelings, so he gets stuck with her. No amount of replying, or ideas have or will ever help- Adios amigo on this subject..moving on down the hallway :)

    My baby sister just emailed me. She said that since this year, she is turning 70 and brother Joe is turning 80, she is throwing a birthday bash. I wrote back, why are you celebrating the fact that you are so old?:rolleyes:
    I guess, in June, I will be heading over to Minneapolis. Keep my spot warm.

    Just found out the SIL isn't visiting us on the 15th after all. She told us that her Timeshare will cost too much. We told her that Timeshares, in Vegas, have raised their costs due to how much Vegas hotels/casinos are getting for a stay. Guess she thinks the cost of a Timeshare in Vegas will go down, but coming on Spring/Summer, that definitely isn't going to happen. So, don't know when, or if, she will make it here before we move. We didn't tell her about our June trip to Carson City/Reno area.

    And now, yesterday, found out that BIL (wife's brother) won't be visiting us, like he thought he might. Not sure why, but we think he might come out if we told him we'd pay for his airfare. Unfortunately, that just isn't going to happen and something that we won't consider. We need the money for our trip in June and for moving in September.

    Don't know, and she doesn't either, when SIL will come out, if she comes out at all.

    Good thing is, now we aren't buying a sofa-bed yet.

    Every now and then a couple of Jakes siblings has filled their quota of me ignoring them, so for past 15 years or so, they started being more civil.
    At least they make it a comedic sarcasm now.
    We don't eat pork or 'unclean food', because we ' thought ' it was sinful, so now that we aren't certain. But now afraid if I do eat 'unclean food, it will make something bad happen.
    Jakes oldeast bro is my age 74, last visit they had a pig on the pit, so he got real close to my face and said, " can you eat chicken ',you can eat chicken ,can't you"? I g even closer to his face and said yep I can eat chicken.
    I don't tell them what to eat or not to eat, so lately all is fine after my letter I sent to the whole family.
    The went nuts about not celebrating xmas since 1984. Took them a couple decades to get over that one.
    His sister said I can't beleive ypou don't celebrate the birth of Christ. I told her I can't beleive she doesn't even know Hid B-day,but we do know, it is not Dec.25th.
