You and I go back such a long time that we immediately pick up wherever we left off. But I don't know V as well, and with the passage of time and lack of contact, he had become a vague memory to me. I remember I liked him a lot, that he is a fine man with great values and dignity . . . but that's about all. Reading this blog--and I admit I was in suspense about V's "bone to pick"--brought V back into sharp focus. Of course he would urge you to be respectful of H--V, like H,is a mensch! Btw, this entry should really be a chapter in a how-to manual for step-parents.


V is of course asleep as I am reading this late at night when apparently you and I are both still awake. But I know he will be very appreciative of your comments, as I am. He is definitely a mensch--although I might have to explain to him what that means. I also think H will appreciate what you said about him too!!


I still can't understand why so many parents insist on their kids taking showers/baths and wash their hair every night. It's not even good for hair for it to be washed every day...LOL


Thanks for commenting---and for agreeing with me. Wish you had been there to take my side when my ex and I were having this ongoing argument about showers.
