Since I, too, am a Granny On The Go I should have said so. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please don't tear me to pieces. I know I did a terrible thing. What I need now is advice. My husband will be home from Vietnam in a few weeks. I became involved with a married man. His wife caught us. She has threatened to tell my husband when he comes home. The affair is over and I never want to see the guy again. He turned out to be the lousiest rat alive. Should I just pray his wife keeps her mouth shut or should I tell my husband and hope he forgives me? Now DEAR SORRY: The threat of blackmail would make your life unbearable. Tell him and hops for the best. DEAR ANN LANDERS: The other evening we had a dinner party. Three couples came from a cocktail recep- tion-half smashed. The guys who were juiced up started to make bets on who was in the best physical condition and began to wrestle in the middle of the living room. I could see by the faces of the sober guests that they didn't like it much. One guy took off his shirt and another guy wanted to take off his trousers but my husband stopped him. To make a long story short "Bronco" made a flying leap to- ward the other two, missed them and landed on the coffee table Needless to say he broke the table to pieces. His wife thought this was hilarious. My husband and I just stood there dumbfounded. The only comment by "Bronco" was, "Gee, it must have been a cheap table." I say the three drunks who were horsing around should buy us a new coffee table. Am I wrong seeing as how they were guests in our home? My husband thinks so. Please Iowa DEAR DAY: I say the three dnmks owe you a new coffee table.

That's life with the Kienast quintuplets, born a year ago line at distinguishing between the quints and the rest of the family. "We have seven children, says Peggy Jo Kienast, 31. "We don't have two quintuplets." Wednesday. But the mother draws the children and The quints are Amy, Sara, Abigail, Ted and Gordon. The two older children are Meg, 5, and John, 2. The quints get individual treatment, particularly at meal time. Although they can often manage the cups themselves, Mrs. Kienast and neighbors hold each child during feeding. "One of the most difficult parts of having quintuplets is just being a Mrs. Kie- project. The Kienasts like to enter- tain. Dinner guests often arrive before 6 p.m., so they can help with the babies' feeding. Laundry is a problem. EVERYBODY HELPS "Everybody does it." says Mrs. Kienast. "Anybody that walks in the house sooner or later you see them carrying a load of laundry downstairs." The quints' daily routine is similar to that of other one- year-olds. They awake about 7 a.m., are changed and fed in their cribs and then rest briefly while Mrs. Kienast has her breakfast. At mid morning they are brought downstairs. While two may romp in the playpen, an- other will swing and the other two experiment or investigate around the house. The five are rarely in the playpen together because fights break out. help from neighbors. After the bath, Mrs. Kienast, again with neighborly help, feeds the quints their I'inch. A short nap follows lunch and then they play until supper- time, about 6 p.m. They are tucked in bed by 7 p.m tween helping with the children and working on a large addi- tion to the house.

S. ______ about a year ago and was very happy about Uiis since my son and his wife live nearby and I could see rny new grandson whenever I wanted to. I also told them I'd be glad to baby- sit any time they needed me. As a result of this offer, my daughter-in-law has never once hired an outside baby-sitter for any occasion. I don't like this one bit. I think she's taking ter- ribly unfair advantage of me and of my good nature. But what can I do about it now? T. A., Hartland, Wise. DEAR T.A.: It takes two to tango. If you weren't so agreeable, your daughter-in-law would either have to stay home herself or make other arrangements. Those who offer their services with no reservations at all can only blame themselves when people take them at their word. They become second-class citi- ens needlessly put-upon by others.

Some- imes I feel like I can't stand t any longer. What can Ido? E.P., Parkland, Wash. DEAR E.P.: Start by looking yourself in the eye and asking yourself whether or not you actually can stand it. You'll find the an- swer is: of course you can. Chen since you're not the one scheduled for surgery, transfer your thoughts to your husband. Ask yourself, "What can I do :o help You know the answer here, too: you can ease he way for him. You can tell lim you know that surgery is not easy to face, but that no matter what happens, you'll be there by his side. Why not try iis approach? It will make you both feel better.
