Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband's two sisters have stopped speaking to us because we refused to ac- company them to the ceme- tery. Do we owe them an apology and a promise to mend our ways? Here are the facts: My in-laws died in a car accident five years ago. It was a terrible tragedy. Since the funeral, my hus- band's two sisters make a ritual of visiting their graves on Mother's Day, Father's Day, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Mom's birth- day, Dad's birthday, Memor- ial Day, Veteran's Day, their own birthdays and many Sun- days in between. They usually invite uncles, aunts, cousins and friends. The last "pil- grimage'' (of which we were a part) included 18 people. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I married this man eight years ago. Our first mates died a few years ago. I bad no chil- dren. My husband has four married. We are so happy together, Ann. He's a kind and loving person and treats me beauti- fully. The problem is some- thing I am ashamed to speak of, but I must. His children milk him for everything they can get. Of course he doesn't see this, but I do. Naturally, I have never said a word. I'm afraid if he goes first I would not have enough to live on. He refuses to make a will. I'm sure his children DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am upset with that lette r signed "Don't Call Me." Its' about "yakking housewives" who call up their friends who work all day and keep them on the phone for hours. I'm a "yakking housewife" who spends a good part of my day "doing things" for women who work like tak- ing care of their dry clean- ing, accepting p a c kages, walking dogs, picking up chil- dren at school. My husband and I were transferred to Ohio recently and returned for the week- end. When my sister-in-law (the Head Honcho) told us what time to meet to go to the cemetery my husband said that we weren't going. They called us disrespectful and "abnormal." Frankly, I find grave-visiting morbid. I believe it is unhealthy to go cry on graves fifteen or twenty times a year. What about this, Ann? Angie DEAR ANGIE: I'm with you. If your want to pitch a tent in the cemetery, that's up to them. If you and your husband don't choose to go at all, it should be up to you. So far as I am concerned it's what you do for your parents when they are alive that counts. would not be kindly disposed toward looking after me. I have always been a house- wife -ard don't know what I could do to support myself. I've mentioned this to him but he refuses to budge. What shall I do? -S.F. DEAR S.F.: This problem calls for drastic measures. My advice is to tell him you must find yourself employ- ment kind of a job you will not be on wel- fare if he should die before you. Then do it. My guess is that he won't let you work long before he goes to a law- yer and does what should have been done years ago. ,1 am. the only woman on this block who is home all day and I have to yak m the phone at least an hour every night to relay messages and tell them what went on in THEIR homes that day. Please sign me Mrs. Had It In Urbana DEAR HAD: Take that and that and that you higrates! Now aren't you sorry you complained? May 13, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HRAlft fit Royalty attends party LONDON (CP) Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, who was Canada's vice-regal first lady from 1940 to 1945, is still in the social swim at 90, as indicated by a birthday party Monday night guaran- teed to upstage them all. "Tiaras if said the handwritten invitation to the celebration, given by Princess Alice's daughter and son-in-law, Lady May and Sir Henry Abel-Smith. The party was three months late because Princess Alice, a granddaughter of Queen Vic- toria, turned 90 Feb. 25 while on her customary winter va- cation in the West Indies. But it made up for that in the splendor of its guest 1st. A gossip-columnist from the Beaverbrook Daily Express infiltrated the elite family gathering sipping champagne beneath the chandeliers of the exclusive, 108-year-old Turf Club in St. James's. The knowledgeable spy counted three the Queen Mother, and Juliana of the princes, five princesses, three dukes and one grand duchess, from the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Tiaras, as bidden, sparkled in profusion, with the ex- ception of Princess Alexan- dra, who came bare-headed. Princess Alice, who lives qui- etly in apartments in Ken- sington Palace, wore black with a white mink of course, a tiara. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have a problem that's been bugging me for over a year. It's time I wrote to Ann Lan- ders. I am very serious about my babysitting job. I try to do it to the best of my ability. The kids I sit with all like me and they mind. I have never had any trouble on a job. Never once have I stood anybody up or let any- body down. My customers have not done the same for me, however. Hare is my complaint and I'd like to know what to do about it. On New Year's Eve almost everybody wants a sitter, so they line up a girl a long time in advance. I accepted a job in October and turned down four others. Ten min- utes before I was to leave the tfa? "hone rsne. The Smiths changed their minds and will not be going out. Sorry about that. So there I was, out a night's work. The same people can- celled me out last Satur- day at too late to take another job. Tonight I got cancelled after I arrived at the Joneses. The Mr. didn't feel well so she was letting him slesp. She didn't tele- phone earlier because she didn't realize what time it was. Neither of these women of- fered to pay me anything. Is this fair? What would you do? DEAR BETSY: I haven't needed a sitter for quite some time like 20 years but I would certainly give a girl at least half of the projected night's pay. This precedent should have been established when you accepted your first sitting job. Now, I suggest that you have a talk with each of your customers and tell them of the "new arrangement." Talkative budgie bird likes beer THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "I'll talk to you later, Al. Harriet said that my steak was ready, whatever that is." NANAIMO, B.C. (CP) Mrs. Joseph Peterson is bursting with pride over her two-year- old's vocabulary of more than 270 words. Because as anyone who has kept pet birds around the house knows, budgies sel- dom learn more than a few words or phrases like, "how are or, if his owner is luckier, something a little seamier. But Joey, who Mrs. Peterson thought had "something special about him' when she bought him from a department store, had mastered 278 words at last count and can string them to- gether quite proficiently. Joey is reserved with stran- gers at first. "Good he'll squeal politely. But if he feels he's in good company he'll try to relax the situation a bit with "A wee drink for justifying his habit with a hearty shout of "Happy New Year." TAKES DROP OF BEER Mrs. Peterson brings Joey and his guest some beer and he really begins to open up. A little less coherently, perhaps, when under the influence. "Its raining cats and dogs. Look at all the snow. Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way." Joey sips and sings until he gets bored with his one-sided conversation and declares: "No more drinks today. I'm exhausted." So while Joey sleeps it off, Mrs. Peterson remarks that if he keeps adding to his vocabu- lary he could become the worlds most loquacious budgie. The budgie with the fastest beak, according to the Guinness Book of Records, knows 500 gives Joey a good shot at the title. But he's obviously not inter- ested. Hearing this, he'll deny it all.
