'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.
