    Ah, the family that sleeps together, sweats together.

    This is not surprising to me. Holidays, are the most stress filled times, for a LOT of people.

    What would he have done to them if they had criticized something more substantial like his work habits or child rearing skills?
    This is my opinion, and change is good.

    True Story... my ex-husband and I had a house full of guests and were having a rip roaring argument... he took the turkey off the counter, right out of the pan and drop kicked it out the back door of our house... it sailed clear across the yard and over the fence into the neighbours yard.

    Then he stormed out of the house.... and left me with 12 dinner guests - it was so embarrassing LOL

    I can laugh about it now.

    Was he a former kicker, for a football team?

    No, he's just a former husband

    Man oh Man.. I swear it was all in slow motions as that turkey sailed out the door and there was grease everywhere... drippings... and bits of turkey on the porch as it kind of exploded a bit.... I had to clean up all the mess and I was crying and embarrassed... my sisters were cracking up... and then everyone was laughing.. so we just had our meal sans the bird. I had made a ham too.. so everything was okay... until he showed his face later

    That was the beginning of the end Tybee, I was 7 months pregnant and I cried for days over the turkey incident LOL

    I remember going to look over the fence a few days later and the bird was all torn apart... cats, etc.. but the pop up thermometer was stuck in the ground rofl
