New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 19, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeitung Q Thursday June Mans Mends take little pleasure in wifes company DEAR ABBY This is the first time I have ever sat down and written to you although I often wonder what your thoughts would be on various matters I have a good friend named Dons wife is the problem Every time we get together she tries to impress people and acts superior She does it in subtle ways but my wife always ends up feeling somehow inadequate when the evening is over Susan talks a lot about money and hinted to her parents about early inheritance many times For the most part she will associate only with people who are at least as well off as she is And when she meets people who are wealthy she sticks to them like glue Don and Susan are having serious marital problems 1 have seen her in action She has a terrible temper and has been known to throw a phone or two Also shes the most shallow person Ive ever met How does someone get like this My wife has told me that she can no longer stomach Susan I understand her objections to Susans value system but I fear if we refuse their invitations Don will be hurt Some of our other friends stopped seeing them years ago I know Don would be puzzled if I started inviting him alone My wife thinks I should level with Don and tell him The girls dont have much in We agreed we would abide by your advice BRAD IN CLEVELAND DEAR BRAD Whose feelings are more important to you Dons or your wifes She must be a saint to have tolerated being belittled without having ended this foursome sooner Since other friends have stopped socializing with Don and Susan Don will understand if your wife is unavailable and the gettogethers are men only because the girls dont have much in common an understatement Susan might even be Believe it or not the reason many people act superior and aloof is because they feel inadequate or inferior DEAR ABBY The letters in your column about people meeting Harry Truman have conjured up a fond childhood memory of mine I grew up in Independence but had never seen Mr Truman until his library was being constructed My father built and installed many of the display cabinets in the Truman Library My daddy knowing me to be quite an autograph hound thought that meeting and getting President Trumans autograph would be an event of a lifetime for his teenage daughter so he asked permission to bring me along one morning I took my Bible and was introduced to Mr Truman He graciously signed it with Read it carefully It will make you Then handing me the signed Bible he led me over to a display case and asked me to read the signature on a document It was Joseph Stalins Mr Truman smiled and added I collect autographs Even though both my father and Mr Truman are gone now and my autographed Bible disappeared during a move the memories will be mine forever SHIRLEY YEAGER HENDERSON RAYTOWN MO DEAR SHIRLEY I think youve said it very well Our memories can be
