New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 10, 1991, New Braunfels, Texas Herald Zeltung, New Braunfels, Texas Friday, May IO. 1991 Page 5 Dear Abby Perfect pet Borrowed advice may help mother get her loan back DHAR ABBY: I novor thought I would have to write a letter liku this, hut I need someone to help me, and I thought of you. One of my daughters and her husband borrowed $7,000 from me almost five years ago. They promised to pay me hark within a year, but so far I haven’t seen a dime of it. This daughter and her husband both have good jobs and seem to have money foreverythingelse. I am 77 years old. live in a senior citizens’ apartment house and am doing without a lot of things I need I am sorry to say that I don’t have any proof that I loaned them the money. I guess I should have asked them to sign a note for it. but I didn t think it was necessary. Now what should I do? TRUSTING MOTHER . DEAR TRUSTING: Without written evidence showing that your daughter and her husband borrowed $7,000, it will be very difficult to collect. You might try the following, suggested by a reader in an earlier column, as a solution to an identical problem: An elderly couple had loaned their son $5,000. He promised to repay it in 90 days. They foolishly had nothing in writing. Four years passed, and not a cent did they receive, so his mother wrote him a letter asking if he could please make even a partial payment on the $7,500 he had borrowed. Quick as a flash he wrote to say that he did not owe them $7,500 — it was only $5,000. Mission accomplished! They got it in writing. ) DEAR ABBY: You frequently re-I mind your readers to make sure their • children are “buckled up" in seat ! belts when they get into a car. But no ) one mentions the fact that pets can . just as easily be thrown from a ve-| hide and injured. It makes me sick to see a dog loose I in the back of a pickup truck or • hanging out of a car w indow. All it . would take is one quick stop or a • sharp curve to send that animal ! flying into the street. My dog loves to go for rides with . me. Ile sits in the passenger seat and I buckle the seat belt around him. • For smaller pets. there are carriers one can attach to the seat to provide • safety for one’s pet. I hope you feel Actor Landon jokes about his cancer therapy By DEBORAH HASTINGS AP Teviston Writer . BURBANK, Calif. — Michael Landon, in his first public appearance since disclosing he has inoperable cancer, joked with talk show host Johnny Carson about his coffee enemas and said he felt good. The former star of “Bonanza,” ; “Little House on the Prairie” and •“Highway to Heaven” was greeted with a standing ovation and wild cheering as he walked on stage during Thursday’s taping of “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.” Landon, S4, said he felt “very good” despite learning last month he has cancer of the liver and pancreas, which usually is fatal. The TV star said his treatment includes coffee enemas, a regimen he joked about with Carson, a longtime friend and neighbor. “You ever taken a coffee enema?” he asked the studio audience. When someone answered they had, he joked “You must be fun to have breakfast with.” Pointing to Carson, Landon added, “I invited John over for a coffee enema. He wanted cream and sugar, and I’m not pouring.” • Since Landon’s April 8 news conference announcing his diagnosis, he has stayed close to his Malibu ranch home. Besieged by paparazzi and requests for interviews, Landon agreed to appear on the show because “You’re my buddy*' he told Carson. Landon said the outpouring of fan letters — more than 50,000 — overwhelms him. “I must tell everybody ‘Thank you,’ “ he said. * Besides coffee enemas, Landen’• treatment includes chemotherapy, highly concentrated doses of vitamins gnd light exercise, “Mentality is more than 50 percent bf your medicine,” Landon said. I Carson said Landon had faced his cancer with “humor and honesty and is personal sense of dignity that characterizes the man.” J “lf prayer helps at all, you’ve got the prayers of everybody in the nation, “ Carson added. tins is important enough to put in your column. LIZ IN CALIFORNIA DEAR LIZ: It is. So, dear readers, listen to Liz. And if you’re lucky enough to own a pet who adores you, the next time that dog or cat follows closely on your heels when you head for the car, remember: Pets rely on their owners to protect them, so don’t let yours down. Inquire at your local pet shop about car seats for pets. DEAR ABBY: I have never written to you before, but I really need your advice now. I can’t give you my address because I feel like a fugitive. Here goes: My husband and I have never paid taxes. We are in our early 80s and have been working since we were 20. When we were very young, we were ignorant about how to pay taxes and file and such. Then we just got careless and never tiled. Now we are afraid to admit that we never filed because we fear the consequences. We are born-again Christians and don’t feel right hiding from the law. We want to make things right. Abby. Please help us. Where do we begin? ANONYMOUS IN THE USA DEAR ANONYMOUS: Get in touch with the Internal Revenue Service. It is listed in your telephone' directory. You can expect to he penalized for your failure to file, but if you were to come forward voluntarily, you would receive more generous treatment than if the IRS “caught” you. The longer you wait, the more severe the penalty, so call the IRS and PDQ. CONFIDENTIAL TO M.C.D.

During the month of May, through the state of Texas, foster families will be honored for the dedication and love they show the many abused and neglected children they care for daily. Childhood should be a happy, carefree and secure time for children, but for many children it means living in a world of emotional, physical and/ or sexual abuse. Foster parents provide a temporary home for these children and allow them the time to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually. In Region 09, which is comprised of 21 Southwest Texas counties including Bexar and Comal counties, approximately 520 children are currently in foster care. Region 09 has over a total of 1200 children in state conservatorship. Al this time there are only 244 foster families. “Foster Family Month is one way to honor and say ‘thank you’ to our foster families for the difficult job they do,” said Brenda Lee, Program Director for Foster Care and Adoptions. “It’s also important because we cannot forget that abuse and neglect of our children is still a very serious problem in this arca.” Throughout the month, Region 09 will be honoring foster families with various events and programs. Some of the events include the 3rd Annual Foster Parent Retreat to be held at T-Bar-M Ranch in New Braunfels, Texas. Foster parents will meet for a weekend of training and fellowship. May 19 has been designated as Foster Family Sunday. On this day it is hoped that all the churches in the region will take time to honor the foster families and the work that they do.
