  1. Good article. I see our family of four in those positions to some extent. The sneaky thing was Dad wasn’t obviously an alcoholic until he retired though my brother has implied differently. I’ll let that slide. I’ve been around other alcoholics that play the blame game perfectly. I’ve learned a lot from the experiences.

    Have you heard of the book “Beyond the Yellow Brick Road”? It puts the characters into similar titles as you mention. Quite interesting.
