For Valentine’s Day, he gave me a dozen red roses. He also gave his 6 year old daughter from a previous marriage a dozen red roses, too However, I noticed that my roses were the short-stemmed variety and his daughter’s were the longstemmed kind. Abby, I was under the impression that St. Valentine’s Day was for lovers. I know it is also an occasion for family members and friends to ex press their love, but isn’t it primarily for lovers? When I told him that I was hurt because I got shortstemmed roses, but his daughter got the longstemmed variety, he said we were both supposed to get the long stemmed variety, But the friend he asked to * get them for him goofed. I still can’t help feeling / jealous. ABBY We’ve been dating for three years, and we’ve “ talked about marriage. Do you think I’m making a big deal out of nothing? -JEALOUSVALENTINE - DEAR JEALOUS: Yes. and I also think you’re making a big mistake to compete with your boyfriend’s 6-year-old daughter. Perhaps he’s bending over backward to make her feel secure and loved. Children of divorced parents are often the beneficiaries of extravagant gifts from fathers who feel guilty because they can’t be full-time daddies to their children. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have two sons — both in their 30s. They live at home and show no signs of leaving. They are not on drugs or anything like that. They don’t seem interested in girls, but I don’t think they are gay. They are no problem, but I am wondering if this is normal. Their only interest is in working and saving their money. Are we doing the right thing to let them stay with us? We would like to have grandchildren someday, but I am beginning to wonder. - NEWARK, N.J. DEAR NEWARK: If, as you say, they are no problem, I see no reason why you shouldn’t let them continue to live with you. Gay or straight, they appear to be living a clean, productive lifestyle. Asking them to move will not guarantee you grandchildren. Have you discussed your concern about their future with them? If not, please do. DEAR ABBY: If the neighbors with the barking dog won’t cooperate, obtain their telephone number, and when you are awakened in the mid die of the night by the barking, dial their number, let it ring until they answer it, then “bark” into the phone and hang up. This has worked for us in past years at two different locations. - LLOYD HENDERSON, OROSI, CALIF.

So is Mr. Clean, the first guy I knew to wear an earring. And remember the Tidy Bowl captain who set sail on a blue sea in our toilet tanks? He’s history. Women no longer look for their reflections in their dining room tables or attack yellow wax buildup on their hands and knees. They no longer take the blame for ring-around-the-collar, but place the guilt where it belongs — men who don’t wash their necks Gordon Jump, the lonely Maytag serviceman, sleeps by a phone that never rings. Slowly but steadily, the women who flipped their mattresses every spring and hosed down their porches have become an endangered species. Cleaning house is no longer a religious experience. Women of the ’90s claim they have BOMBECK better things to do. Giving up housecleaning wasn’t hard for me. What converted me to apathy was cleaning my kids’ rooms. It was as ludicrous as cleaning an oven the day before it caught fire. I’d retrieve glasses and plates of food hidden under the bed, take socks off light bulbs, rescue pets lost in the woodwork, gather up wet towels and discarded clothes, put out the fire in the aquarium, and dress my daughter’s naked dolls who looked at me with fear in their eyes. The next day I’d do it all over again. No one seemed to notice one way or another. Bleached dish towels weren’t any more absorbent than dingy gray ones. Bathroom faucets cleaned with a toothbrush never got me a standing ovation. If my husband was refused a promotion because his boss saw spots on my glasses when they came from the dishwasher, no one mentioned it. What I’m saying is housekeeping is an art that was taken for granted I never heard my dad say to my mother, “I could eat a meal off the top of your refrigerator. That is why I love you so much.” My grandmother’s obituary said she left behind a grieving husband, five children and 24 grandchildren. It never mentioned she left a clean oven, spices arranged in alphabetical order and a waxed driveway. The Greek chorus of spokesmen for cleaning products are playing to a limited audience unless it’s an item that saves time. Today’s homemakers have discovered the miracle cure for housework: deodorant spray. You may never get their heads in their buckets again. EDITOR’S NOTE: Erma Bombeck’s column appears in the Aiken Standard on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. _Your Horoscope By JEANE DIXON HAPPY BIRTHDAY! IN THE NEXT YEAR OF YOUR LIFE: You find fresh sources of inspiration when you need them most. Although romance could have its ups and downs this summer, you and your partner will experience golden moments in September. The companionship of a child or parent is a special gift; treasure it. A legacy or promotion in November will mean new financial freedom. Early in 1994, building or buying a vacation home holds great appeal. Check a contractor’s references. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Both your mate and a close associate encourage you to take on new challenges. Settling financial questions will require a careful investigation. Singles find romance. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): An emphasis on action motivates you to assert yourself. Organizing your home is also rewarding. Finish up old projects before beginning new ones. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Any irritation you or your partner feel can be handled sensibly, but it would help if you took the initiative. The company of someone you respect leads to a new spiritual awareness. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Speak your mind to the one you love. Avoid making accusations if you want a sympathetic hearing. Those lovers who have a private language find that it brings them closer together. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The power to do a great job is yours. You will enjoy cooperating on an important project. Someone expresses affection for you publicly. You may not be ready for a commitment, though. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Announcing the results of recent research leads to success. You think of faraway places. Have a serious money talk with the powers that be. Emphasize teamwork.

Expressing resentment over old grievances could cause a dear one pain. Forgive and move on. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Try to remain calm in the face of a challenge.

A budget revision helps relieve stress. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Household or community affairs capture your attention As love grows stronger, some of you think about making a permanent commitment.
