Realizing Mom Couldn't Give Me What I Needed I got into my car after a yet another stress filled, teeth gritting, hole in the tongue producing, caretaking visit with my 90 something year old mother. Oh she could take care of herself but it was so nice that I came over to help. More >>

Unusual Kids' Names Like I'm sure you were, I was dying to know the "unusual" name your recent caller chose for her child that angered the long lost friend she originally heard the name from.

I just listened to your caller whose husband did not want to come home for leave from war, he wanted to just wait it out until his year tour was over and then come home.
