Breckenridge American;12/29/2007, Vol. 104, p2
The author shares the many truths that she had learned during a week-end with her family. She starts by observing that the plumbing system in their home is insufficient to accommodate visiting relatives. When preparing meals, there are not enough pots and pans available for use. At bed time, a decision as to who gets to sleep in the good bed has to be made. Also, family members forget that Christmas food is fattening.
