So Spacemanspiff it is probably hard for your mom to realize how bad her sister might be because she still looks at her through colored glasses of yester years while all you see is your mom's nut case sister
in my familys case, that probably isnt the case. the aunt is 15 yrs or more younger than my mother, and if i recall correctly mom had already 'left the nest' before she could ever really bond with her sister.
they've never gotten along.
been two days since the aunts shown up anywhere. who knows>? maybe they did go back to kodiak?
