I don't know about you CZ. But I think my brother & sister are just tightwads. My sister spent the majority of her young adult life in college, to become a professor in the arts. She teaches High School. And she treats me like I'm one of her students.
She actually thought that taking a double amputee, (me) hiking in the mountains was supposed to be good for me. At the time, I just got my first prosthetic foot, for my second amputation and I am just starting to learn to walk again. So, naturally, the first thing I want to do is fall off Washington State. She was so angry with me that I didn't want to go trampsing through the forests.
But, you know? She hikes to the crater of Mt. St. Helens every year. She has the ability. And I'm truely happy for her. But she has no idea what it takes to get through therapy and learn to walk twice.
My brother is just a plain deadbeat. Spent a lot of time in a christian college, learning about the bible. But he also like to think that there is aliens on our planet, in goverment positions, He's devorced twice, has children from the second marrage and is trying to get out of alimony payments.
He met his current, (third) wife, on-line, ran the car that my parents gave me, into the ground. Bought his own vehicle, got into an accident, and used the insurance money to buy a computer. Meanwhile, my dad has to drive him to and from work, until he finally moved to WA.
Think I want to move to WA.? I'll take my chances with the hurricanes.
