Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDEHS: This morning when my neighbor came over for our regular 10 o'clock cup of coffee she had in lier hand a letter her husband had brought home from work. He thought it was pretty funny. We wonder how mucli kidding on the square was involved. Here's the letter, Ann. Please cide: Dear loving wife; During the past year I have tried to make lova to you 365 times. I recorded 229 excuses and 3G successes. I kept track of Ihe reasons which accompanied the refusals. Here they arc: We'll wake the cliildren, 17 times. It's too hot, 10 times. It's too cold, 5 times. I'm loo lired, 32 limes. It's too early, 15 limes. It's too late, 23 Umes. Please, dear, I'm asleep, 35 times. Windows open, neighbors might liear, 9 tunes. Backache, 18 limes. Headache, 16 limes. Toolhachc, 2 limes. Drank loo much, 14 times. Ate too much, 14 limes. Not in Ihe mood, 21 times. Mud pack, 2 times. New hair-do, 17 limes. Company in the next room, 11 times. Wouldn't you rather watch the late TV show? 40 times. Is that all you men lliink about 29 limes. Thanks, dear. Your Loving Husband (Bui Nol Enough) How about it, Ann. Is it tunny? Calif. DEAR PARADISE: Yes, it's funny, but like a great deal that passes for humor, I sense a lot of kidding on the square, DEAR ANN LANDERS: I just finished reading the letter signed Pittsburgh Reader. She wanted to take pictures ol the neighborhood cats Bnd dogs and pass them around the vacation resort when everyone else pulled out snapshots of their children and grandchildren. I like to tell you how my husband solved the same problem. He look a bottle of furniture polish called Pride, put It alongside a bottle of dishwashing detergent called Joy and took a dozen photographs in color, repositioning them so each pic- ture was different. Whenever someone handed him a fistful of snapshots of their children or grandchildren, he gave them his pictures and said with a glean in his eye "And now I'd like you to see OUR Pride and Joy." It didn't cure anybody but it sure did break up the monotony. Sign me Married To A Barrel Of Laughs DEAR MAHHIED: I'm sorry you weren't blessed with children to brag about, but at least you have a sense of humor. Thanks tor writing. Confidential to Answers Needed To Specific Questions: Sorry, I have no definition for "normal" and I have yet to meet a person who is willing to admit he is "average."
