GK Chesterton

My country, right or wrong," is a thing that no patriot would think of saying except in a desperate case. It is like saying, "My mother, drunk or sober."
G. K. ChestertonEnglish author & mystery novelist (1874 - 1936)

How right is he???

He's right...but truly, sometimes one thinks things about one's mother they wouldn't necessarily say in public when perhaps they should. Accountability and all that.

Michele sent me to prove I could correctly use the phrase "one's mother." ;)

Me thinks he is not right...

Joyful Days said... seems to be a bit desperate these days. But where you gonna go???

Ummmmmm...kinda like the "mom" thing. What are the options? (Although my mother's issues were not with alcohol--that was/is my m-i-l. My mother had a different set of issues.)
