Dandelion Wine: Unwelcome Relatives

One of the most memorable stories from Dandelion Wine is the story of Grandma's cooking, and the visiting Aunt Rose. I remember this story often, even if I don't remember where it's from.

Who is your relative (or close family friend) who's there to "help out", and you just want them to leave and stop meddling?

We won't talk about my (mercifully long deceased) unwelcome relative. I try every day to not be like her.

What does your unwelcome relative do that drives you crazy - even though he's only trying to help? And how can you ever solve the problem of trying to stop them?

In memory of my relative, I often fling a bit of flour around the kitchen, and make a killer batch of biscuits.
