Please set me straight on a few facts. My sister-in-law told us when arrived that we would havo lo share the children's bathroom because the bathroom con- nected with the sun porch where we wore lo sleep was not usable. No other explanation. Aflcr I unpacked I went inlo the adjoining bathroom lo wash my hands. I almost died of fright. There was a five-foot alligator in the balhtub. I ran downstairs and asked my sister-in-law what that tiling was doing in there. She was very cool about it said the kids had been given an iguana by Uieir uncle last year and it just grew, f asked what they planned to do with it and she said they'd probably give it to Ihc zoo, as soon as tlicy could talk the children into parting wilh it. She also said it was harmless and I was silly to be PO upset I didn't get much sleep that weekend, and I still shake when I think of it. Having a lizard in an adjoining room is not my idea of a restful weekend. Please tell me if some- thing that looks like a crocodile is harmless, and if au iguana can grow that big. (It must have weighed 39 pounds.) No one in Grand Eapids has ever seen one of Ihose tilings. Get DEAR CAT: Your sister-in-law gave you the straight goods iguanas can grow to be five feet long. I think it's criminal that anirnaJs are sold lo the public as novelly "toys" for kids. Thousands of baby chicks and bunnies suffer Ihe same sad fate at Easter time. Most people don't kr.ow what lo do wilh the chickens and rabbits when they grow up. Thai poor iguana was not meant lo flop around in a bathtub. I hope your sister-in-law takes him to a zoo soon. Please tell her I suggested it. Animals have rights, tco. DEAR LANDERS: After 23 years of marriage my husband and I were divorced. He wanled a new life. That was seven months ago. Last week I learned he is engaged to marry a girl young enough to be Ms daughter. I was not surprised because I knew he had been seeing some younp girls. bothers me is thai they plan to be married in the same church, at Ihc same altar where we were married. Our children were chns- lened in that church, attended Sunday school and were con- firmed there. We had our first date at the Youth Fellowship Dance in Ihc social hall. Some of my relatives have made a formal protest to Ihe pastor. (He is mv to the community and rather young.) Ths paslor has indicated that he does not feel it would be appropri- ate for lum to lake sides, and his duty is to perform Ihe ceremony at Ihe place selected by the bride and groom. Pleas.? understand that I am not allemptirg lo prevent the marriage, Ann. I object only to having it lake place in the church that holds such meaningful memories for me. Do you feel the paslor is conducting himself in a Christian manner I do not believe lie is, nor does my family. broken Former Wife DEAR FOIUIER WIFE: Three distinguished Protestant clergymen support the new pastor. They say it is his respon- sibility to remain neutral and to perform his dulics. Your former hutbar.d obviously feels warmly about his church hut in a strange and sick way he has blocked you out of his memory insofar as the church is concerned. This lie difficult to tcccpl. but accept il you must. My own opinion is th.u Iw is grossly insensitive and inconsiderate but you must not condemn the paslor for your former husband's inadequacies. Please send inquiries and to Landers Render- mail Departmcnl. Chicago Sim Times-Daily News, 401 North Wabash Ave., Chicago, III. 60611.
