W hat woman hasn't caught a glimpse of her aging face in the mirror and thought, "Oh, no. I look like my mother." What mother hasn't heard herself barking at her children and thought, "Heavens. I sound just like my mother." Me? Well, my hands look just like my mother's did at this age, and I find myself using her funny, old expressions: "It's as cold as Christian charity." And "There will be worse and more of it." But it is my mother-in-law that I seem to be channeling these days.

I hate losing. I hate it when I lose my keys, lose my way, or lose my train of thought. I have spent my life trying to learn the rules of every game that I played in an effort to ensure that I was always prepared and that I had everything that I needed to be victorious. The game always made sense to me when I knew the rules. I respected the boundaries and I fought hard. I am not accustomed to or comfortable with losing, and that is why I am having a difficult time. Earlier this year, my dear sweet mother-in-law passed away, less than three months after being diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer that had metastasized from her lungs to two places in her brain.

CLARIFICATION In the story on mothers-in-law in last Sunday's section, the Web site address where readers can find Dr. Terri Apter's advice and research paper was omitted. The Internet address is www.motherinlawstories.com. You've probably heard a million mother-in-law jokes like this one: "Hello. Your mother-in-law fell into my pool filled with crocodiles." "The crocodiles are yours, so you save them." But did you ever ask yourself why you never hear father-in-law jokes? Or why a loving mom gets stereotyped as a bossy sadist once her child gets married?

The front-page headline on the Sunpaper says "Sequester pains hit home" (July 12). Meanwhile, President Barack Obama just got back from Africa with his wife, two children and his mother-in-law. Please tell me how the sequester is having an impact on them.

It's "open season" for health care coverage, and the hunt to find just the right plan is coming down to the wire; for Medicare, the last day to make a selection is Dec. 7. Earlier this year, thanks to Medicare and medicine, my 82-year-old mother-in-law received eye surgery that promises her clearer vision than she's had in more than three-quarters of a century. Still, despite due diligence during last year's open enrollment, and a first-hand trip through the system this year, the coverage choices and their consequences remain frustratingly opaque.

They are auctioning Elizabeth Taylor's jewels at Christie's in New York in December, and they expect the finest of them — about 260 pieces — to bring in some $30 million. But that's just a tiny part of what she left behind. In October, the estate of John Wayne — responding to fan requests that remain strong since his death more than 30 years ago — is auctioning off some of the large collection of movie memorabilia it holds. Everything from his Golden Globe for "True Grit" to the eye patch he wore in the movie.
