'Morning B.D.-- 'Phia is much better this morning although we had a tough night. She slept with me and was febrile and very restless. Also, I had a tough time getting her to take her antibiotic before bed. As a more motherly father than most, I certainly can say that mothers make much better mothers than do fathers. The whisky sure helped, though. Even if whats-his-name thinks we need group therapy, this has been the first twenty-four hour period in which Peter hasn't dissed someone. I take that to mean that I win! In any case, thanks for your support. We must be right because even "Father Ted" hasn't tried to mediate the battle.
