Q. I would like to ask you if you could provide some guidance on how to best sell a family home. The goal is to get my son and his wife into my mother's house at a reasonable cost and not cause family disharmony among my brothers. The situation now is: My mother, who is elderly, is living in her home (no mortgage, she owns it). I live next door. She would like to sell her home to my son at a reasonable price because he and his wife are young and certainly cannot afford the asking prices of homes in the area (Howard County)

In last Friday's column, I made an incorrect reference to Tulane University. It's not in Alabama, but Louisiana. The Southern institution I meant to mention was Auburn University, in Alabama. Sorry about that.SOMETIMES it happens this way. Someone can't cope with what comes along in life. They get caught in a strong current that carries them away. They almost drown. The 33-year-old woman I met in Dundalk the other day seemed to have been through something like this. It was as if she had just returned to shore, dripping wet, stunned from the experience, laughing nervously.

I AM a stickler about holiday traditions. Last Saturday, for instance, at a get-together at my mother's house in Kansas City, I witnessed a disturbingly harmonious erection and decoration of a Christmas tree. According to our custom, the guys are responsible for getting the tree upright and for stringing the lights on its branches. The gals, in turn, are responsible for "correcting" our work, for repositioning the lights, and for making it gorgeous by adding ornaments. Next come the debates, the frank exchanges of opinions and the deeply held grudges over whether the entire tree or just the angel atop it should be moved "a little to the left."
