Wait for what?

I'd tell my shiftless, deadbeat nephews to visit their mother in her shithole of a nursing home.

That woman birthed them. They should do the right thing by her. If they can't visit her, surely the fucking telephone still works.

After that I'd stay the fuck outta their business.

It really depends on how you feel about your sister.

See, because I would tell her that the loser, grossly fat, Sprite addicted 2 year old she raised has now become an alcoholic, and his wife left him after having gastric bypass surgery and losing a ton of weight.

And just for the hell of it, I would also add that her home with the $40,000 guest bathroom in it is now a smoldering pile of rubbish in Pembroke Pines....

But,

If she's a sweetheart follow Matty's advice.

My younger brother was divorced a year before telling our parents and I didn't blab. So there's your answer.

If the son is going to start working on looking after his responsibilities, it might as well start now. He must tell her and answer all her questions about her Grandchildren.
Its his job.

So, after sitting on the fence and deliberating all the input:

The twins and I went for a ride in my truck today...


...turned into the nursing home parking lot and we went in and had a nice chat and visit....



..and they said you couldn't make a horse drink when led to water.... 8)

thanks all...
