DearAbbyNEW BRAUNFELS HERALD-ZEITUNGSnore war creating sleepless nights
(EDITOR S NOTE: Abby is on ,» a two-week vacation. Following is a selection of some of her favorite past letters.)
DEAR ABBY: My husband says * > that I snore, but I know I don't. One ; thing I know for certain is that he
• snores; and if I don't fall asleep be-! fore he does, I ain up all night. He ; tells me that he is up all night because . of my snoring, which is ridiculous ’ because if he were up. he wouldn’t be
• keeping me up with his snoring.
- How can we find out the truth?
I Don't suggest we have a third party *sleep with us, as I am very old-
DEAR HATTIE: Buy, rent or ' borrow a tape recorder and turn •.it on when you both retire.
’,‘Whoever is awake while the bother is snoring should say, “I ram awake, so you must be snorting!” And that should settle it!
•I DEAR ABBY: My problem is a '.•husband who thinks he's funny. I ‘♦had a very nice dinner party at home rthe other night and was especially yproud of the way everything turned
Well, when the guests were leaving. my husband said, “Come back soon because the only time I get a decent meal around here is when we have company.*' Everybody laughed, but I wanted to crawl into a hole.
He said that once before and it got a big laugh, so he pulled it agami In the first place, Abby, its not true. I pride myself on always feeding my family very well. I told him later I didn't think that crack was very funny, but he said, “I was only-kidding.”
Is there a clever retort I could use in case my husband the comic says that again?
TICKED OFF IN TULSA
DEAR TICKED: You could say (only kidding, of course), “The only time my ever lovin’ Scrooge ves me money for fancy groceries is when we have company."
DEAR ABBY: You had a letter in your column about people who were always mooching rides, and these moochers were called “schnorrers I would like to know where that term came from. We are one of the ‘200 families in the United States
with the name of “Schnorr,” and we object to the use of our name with such a meaning.
We hope that the Schnorr families in Oregon. New Mexico, Illinois and all other states feel as we do and that you get 199 more letters of protest.
THE SCHNORRS OF ARIZONA
DEAR SCHNORRS: The verb “to beg” is “schnorren” in German. From it comes the noun “schnorrer” — which means “a beggar, a panhandler, a moocher, a cheapskate, a chiseler, a bum, a drifter or a borrower.” It can also mean a compulsive bargain hunter, bargainer or an impudent indigent.
The above information was “schnorred” (borrowed without permission) from “The Joys of Yiddish” — a delightful and authoritative book written by Leo Rosten.

J Born today, you are an imaginative , and adventurous soul. You yearn to | know more about the mysteries of life
* than is perhaps possible for any single individual You are driven by a deep
• and inexplicable desire to put yourself at the center of affairs — even when you have no real conscious desire to be running things You do love attention, and from your earliest years you no doubt developed several tactics for winning praise from elders You have a natural fear of rejection of any sort
The fact that you are certain that there is always something important waiting for you just over the horizon is sure to keep you going when things get rough You are surely optimistic and idealistic — though, of course, you are not immune from bouts of self-doubt and uncertainty that can occasionally be severe
