Asking the visitors if they want to stay for dinner has always worked for me: there´s a sudden rush for the coats and purses. Unless the visitors have come from far away (more than 50 km)

I get by with a little help from my friends....ta ta ta ta ta...

Going completely against what my mom would say, talk with your mouth full. Maybe spit some mashed potatoes on them. Accidentally, of course...

Have Funds, Will Retire

...not doing anything of true substance...

We have family members whose native languages are not English and sometimes the conversations are tiring, mostly for them of course but also for the listeners--it's like there's another level your brain has to go through to adjust to the phrasing and accent, and to speak clearly and consciously in response and to choose your words so they're easily understood. I think they like us anyway.

We try to follow the 3-day rule for visiting and fish.
