NEW BRAUNFELS HERALD-ZEITUNG
Wedded bliss began in ladies lounge
DEAR ABBY: Can you stand one more letter about crazy wedding nights? My mother and dad have repeated this story often. Dad had relied on close friends to reserve the bridal suite in the Mallory — a lovely old residential hotel in Portland, Ore. As it turned out, the friends didn’t think it was necessary to make reservations, so they didn’t bother. Well, as luck would have it, there was a plumbers’ convention in town that week and, needless to say, every hotel was filled to capacity.
The manager of the Mallory was gracious enough to find them a place to sleep for the night. The first “room they were offered was a closet under the stairs with no ventilation. The second option was the Women’s Lounge located on the main floor of the hotel right oft the I >bby. They chose the lounge.
The management brought in two roll-away beds and hung a “CLOSED” sign on the door. Dad said he unscrewed hundreds of light bulbs from around the vanity mirrors because he couldn’t find the light switch to turn them off.
My folks said there were about eight toilets in the room, and they never used the same one twice.
All night long women were knocking on their door — trying to get in to use the restroom. They didn't get much sleep, but they had a lot of laughs and made the best of the situation.
Their union produced five children, and lasted until mother's death six months ago—one month short ot their 44lh anniversary.
Dad’s name is Leo Kacena. Mother’s name was June. I’m their daughter.

DEAR ABBY: I read with sorrow your reply to “Forever a Baby” who couldn’t understand why parents worry so much. You said, “It s every parent’s nightmare that their child will be badly hurt or killed in an automobile accident ” How true.
We worried about our two sons. One was fairly cautious — the other w a* a speeder. We got them through high school und thought we were home free.
On April 8, our youngest son decided to ride to town with a friend who had been drinking. The friend drove too fast, und both were killed in a one-car accident.
; To “Baby" I say, "Be glad you have parents who worry about you and have rules ”
We will never be the same.

DEAR ABBY: Your advice to give money as a gift to nurses and aides at holiday time is a no-no. I am an aide, and we are not allowed to accept money from patients or their families.
NURSE’S AIDE, PITCAIRN, PA.
DEAR ABBY: It is so good to hear that there are people who appreciate
the quality of care provided in our nursing home. Most of the time all we get is criticism. In Texas, most nursing facilities will not accept cash gifts from residents and their families. A written thank-you note is all we need, or may accept.
