Our longtime visitor, however, used occasional four-letter words that burned my ears and made Dad squirm. To my knowledge the stranger was never confronted. My dad was a teetotaler who didn't permit alcohol in his home - not even for cooking. But the stranger felt he needed exposure and enlightened us to other ways of life. He offered us beer and other alcoholic beverages often. He made cigarettes look tasty, cigars manly, and pipes distinguished. He talked freely too much too freely about sex. His comments were sometimes blatant, sometimes suggestive, and generally embarrassing.
As I look back, I believe it was the grace of God that the stranger did not influence us more. Time after time he opposed the values of my parents. Yet he was seldom rebuked and never asked to leave. More than thirty years have passed since the stranger moved in with the young family on Morningside Drive.

Title: A Stranger in the Family Young David Lomax is crushed by equipment at the recycling plant where he was working and ends up in a wheel-chair with physical and mental damage. Whilst the employers have always claimed it was David's own fault for not observing procedure, his devoted and dogged mother pushes for compensation and ultimately Kavanagh is able to impress upon an honest employee, whose recent bereavement made him a prey to suggestion, to tell the truth in David's favour.
Stranger picks up family on roadside, buys them supplies for shelter stay
Written by don minifie If slow to start with, and some of the secondary characters are underwritten it is a brave episode, dealing with injury at work and what have you. That said though, visually I can't fault the episode, the drama is constantly very well made and this episode is no exception, the writing is decent if not entirely exceptional and the music as always is superb. Overall, not the best, but worth watching. Explore popular and recently added TV series available to stream now with Prime Video.
