Drop-In Guests Make Life On the Lakeshore a Chore
DEAR ABBY: We are dreading the summer because we live on a lake in Minnesota, which seems to make us fair game for uninvited summer guests. They plan their summer vacations with our place in mind—not to mention the use of our boats, fishing equipment, gasoline, golf clubs and, most of all, our precious time.
We welcome invited guests, but how can we discourage those who pop in on us uninvited? They come with suitcases and kids, telling us not to fuss—they’ll sleep anywhere!
This is a loud cry for help, Abby— not only from us, but from other lake dwellers, too.
We hate to be rude, but we are so tired of uninvited guests we’ve even thought of selling our summer place.
NC) NAMES, BLEASE
DEAR NO NAMES: As long as you permit yourself to be imposed upon, you will be, so in the interest of self-defense, you must do the following: When uninvited guests appear at your door with suitcases and kids, tell them without hemming and hawing or apologizing that you can’t ask them to stay because you’ve made other plans. You owe them no further explanations as to what the “other plans” are.
I am enclosing a poem for you and your fellow lake-dw ellers. I ran it about five years ago, after which a Wisconsin reader informed me that he* had it framed to hang in his beach home. Help yourself:

Born today, you are an imperious person who wants what he wants when he wants it When you have an idea, you cannot wait to see it transformed into a pleasurable, profitable reality When you enter upon an adventure - or. indeed, any new experience — it is as leader. not follower A facilitator, you spend much time and energy trying to make things easy for others, even at your own expense and with no expectations of return
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph Let your birthday star be your daily guide
