Retired Irish curmudgeon and part-time pirate. Currently hiding out in Ecuador
I recently suffered through press previews of both Cats and Dr. Dolittle and quickly remembered why I rarely go to movies anymore – much less, write reviews!
Different dance, same partners.
“_Life’s just much too hard today, "
I hear ev’ry mother say
The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose
No more running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper
They just helped you on your way through your busy dying day_.
You are right that the age gaps between the kids make a big difference.
Friends of mine had a late-in-life surprise baby. There was 10 years difference between the baby and the middle child. Both the older brothers were super-protective of their “baby brother” growing up.
Today, the boys are 47, 45 and 35 respectively, and are still very close but completely different personalities.
The oldest is a VP for a resort/hotel chain. The middle one is a gourmet chef, and the baby is a surgeon at a trauma center.
" It’s so chic to be Greek, cheek to cheek! "
The Impeachment of tRUMP is a joke/ from the moment that Moscow Mitch spoke/ “Don’t worry” said he/ “We’ll soon set you free/ to continue to lie, to obstruct, and provoke.”
Nah, we already know how that particular drama is going to end.
I doubt anyone can work up any excitement for watching a trial where the jury has already gone on record to say they’ll acquit as quickly as possible.
Elizabeth is experiencing “middle child syndrome”. It’s real and can have long-lasting effects if not recognized, and the proper help given to the middle child in adjusting to the changes in their life.
You were very fortunate to have such a loving, caring, and intelligent Dad!
