    Lord Byron said, "And if I laugh at any mortal thing, tis that I may not weep."

    I think a family conference sounds like a good idea. But first you and hubby need to decide what
    you want to announce.

    And it needs to be a firm announcement, not a timid request. Right?!

    Good luck.

    are not my strong point. Nor avoiding being taken advantage of. As a couple, each protecting the other spouse, maybe you can get some firmness.

    Technically, though, this is a great fantasy problem!:

    Get some of Monica's bird mites? Except maybe couldn't get rid of them. Bird mites could be actually be worse than irresponsible kids!

    Is the main house made of wood? Insured? No,no .....I guess you do like the main house.

    Shut off electricity and water? Get a personal generator for yourselves. It's not like you are a landlord, and legally constrained. It's Your house!

    And old standby is to get some of that g-d awful smelling fly bait. Perhaps put a little under the front porch, in place where you can clean it up eventually. Hmm, I think someone mentioned putting shrimp into the curtain rods:)

    I think one of my grandparent's used to carry a shotgun everytime they opened the door to a stranger.....but those were different times and place.

    Perhaps make sure that every visitors vehicle, not just buses, gets stuck in mud? Unfortunately, perhaps, scattered one inch screws in driveway a bit too actually destructive for me.

    Anyhow, kind of late for me,......but maybe you can get some laughs thinking about some fantasy solutions. Best of luck, your mr bill.

    ...this curious & pathetic fact of life: that when parents are old & their children grown up, the grown-up children are not the persons they formerly were; that their former selves have wandered away, never to return again, save in dream-glimpses of their young forms that tarry a moment & gladden the eye, then vanish & break the heart.
    - "Memorial to Olivia Susan Clemens"

    This is a quote from Mark Twain. So true.

    Good luck and keep on laughing!!


    ETA Here is a lighter quote from Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens:

    Familiarity breeds contempt--and children.
