Universal Press Syndicate DEAR ABBY Several years ago on my way to a Halloween party I stopped by a neighbors house to show her my brandnew clown cos tume Later she asked if she could borrow it to wear to a party I gra ciously lent her my costume for one occasion When I asked her some weeks later to please return my costume she said she had to wash it Abbyj over the years I asked her repeat edly for my costume her answer was always Ill have it for you etc but I never did see my clown costume again Now she says she cant find it once she even told me she was sure she returned it another time she said I thought you gave it to me to She offered to buy me another costume I think she should buy herself one and quit clowning around What do you think NOT FUNNY IN LONGVIEW TEXAS DEAR NOT I think your neighbor probably let someone else borrow it and it was never returned Or else she has it stuck away somewhere and cant find it In any case you can replace it or write it off as a total loss or ask her to reim burse you for it DEAR ABBY I have never writ ten to you before but I hope you or one of your readers can help me with this problem I am a 21year old male I live by myself next

live like this the rest of my life I want to be indepen dent but no matter how hard I try I just cant get up Any suggestions Please help RIP VAN WINKLE DEAR RIP Ask your doctor for a referral to a

right to wear it closest to your heart and switch the original Wedding band to your right hand third finger Confusing I hope not I DEAR ABBY This is for Unsure in Framingham whose fiancee refuses to marry him if he becomes a street cop because its too dangerous Someone should point out the fact that more people are killed or seriously injured working with farm machinery And what about con struction workers welders and elec tricians Also building highrise buildings dams and bridges isnt exactly a walk in the park How many lumberjacks and log gers are killed on the job each year I personally knew two house painters who died on the job and one who fell off a ladder and was permanently paralyzed from the neck down Not along ago 12 coal miners in eastern Kentucky were buried alive on the job When was the last time 12 cops died at the same time And when did 25 people die together as did the employees of that chicken processing plant in North Carolina two or three years ago I would feel a whole lot safer being a street cop than being a clerk in a 24hour convenience store IN GOODLETTSVILLE TENN DEAR There are many jobs with great risks but it doesnt necessarily follow that a career in law enforcement is safe by comparison police face violence and death every day Their tasks run the gamut from social worker to diplomat from bouncer to minister And as any cop can tell you it requires a touch of genius to feed and clothe a family on a police salary However as you so aptly put it life is not with out risks and nobody has a contract with God DEAR ABBY I have been mean ing to share this with you since you started your column I was never comfortable with reference to death in that littfe nighttime prayer we teach our chilJ dren so I changed it for my chil dren and their children and now for my greatgrandchildren May I share it with you for your approval Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep In the morning when I wake I pray the Lord my hand to take Abby isnt that a happier mes sage to go to sleep on We think so JANICE TODD PALM DESERT CALIF DEAR JANICE It is indeed a happier but as we oldtimers would say I dont think it will play in TRAVEL
