Books Ordered

Filed under: Books,General,Music — Patterico @ 8:58 pm



Thanks to an exceptionally generous gift by my wonderful mother-in-law, I am ordering the following books from Amazon:

Supreme Conflict: The Inside Story of the Struggle for Control of the United States Supreme Court – Jan Crawford Greenburg

L.A. Rex – Will Beall

I have already ordered three albums by the band “The Stereo” — the precedessor to “Let Go” — and there is still plenty left on this gift certificate.

She has no idea what joy these gifts bring me. Though I am going to do my best to tell her, starting with this post.

  1. Why is it that mothers-in-law and sons-in-law love each other and mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law hate each other?

  2. As the saying goes, a son is a son until he takes a wife but a daughter’s a daughter for the rest of your life.

  3. Well, with all martinis and venom spewing from the lacquered orange lips, the restaurant patrons were treated to a dowager’s alcohol-fueled racist frenzy. Over an explosion of words that start with n, the daughter-in-law sat quietly with husband, glancing nervously for any recognizable friends or neighbors.

    Ignore the behavior and it’s like ignoring a two-year old. The problem doesn’t stop. Years later, it’s clear it’s not the alcohol, just a need to dominate. At any cost.

    Blessed are the kindly mothers-in-law. . . a necessary part of any good family tree.

  4. Wow! I didn’t realize that I was such a wonderful mother-in-law! Both of mine have been great. Plus, Patterico is easy to love.
