  1. OK, I get that MIL is mother-in-law. But I don’t think Mike was a designated hitter at the young age shown in the photo. The only other thing I can think of is “divorced husband”, and I don’t think that’s right, either.

  2. Dear Husband, Darling Husband, Dang Husband, or some such endearment.

    Clearly, Shell, you need to spend more time online.

    Or…hmm…do I need to spend less time online?

  3. Now that’s some Mother’s Day present! Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! From the (grateful) sister.
