    In general, I agree that wanting every last penny accounted for could indicate trust issues, but not always. In the case of my aunt and her husband mentioned above, that simply was his personality. ...

    She does have a nice smile. Sweet purr, too, a soft voice, and an amiable personality. I wonder how somebody could toss her out. On the other hand, the two times I have heard her seriously...
