I'm jealous. Even my 14 yr old dog can hold it many, many more hours than I can at my age. Oh to be able to fish that long between potty breaks again!

Family is family for them. While he was never engaged, he wasn't disliked - except for that passive/aggressive withdrawal. Sense of obligation is strong in that clan. They would never think it...

Good advice as always. I would never insert myself, unless asked. But I may put my name out there as a less involved party. If they want.
