Woman’s cooking is bone of contention with fiance
DEAR ABBY: My fiance hates my cooking. Every time I make a meal and ask him what he thinks, he has a different complaint. If I correct what he complained about, he finds a new complaint. t I made a meatloaf. He said the onions overpowered it. I made a romantic, candlelit dinner of chicken and roasted potatoes with a cream sauce. He called it weird. When I prepare a time-consuming dinner, he smothers it with ketchup or salad dressing. It’s always ‘ ‘too much salt,” “too bland,” ‘‘needs something,” or ‘‘not like my mother made,” etc.
Abby, I have told him this is hurtful, but he still complains. He has even called my cooking “gross.”
.I’m sure it isn’t that I can’t cook — other people love what I prepare, and my mother says I’m a natural. I have been cooking since I was 11 years old.
My fiance also cooks occasionally, and when he does, I always compliment him on whatever he makes. Is it too much to expect him to express appreciation for my efforts?

Family of four loses home
From staff reports
Fire destroyed a trailer home at 2030 Meadow Sage in Schertz at about 11 a.m. Monday.
Two adults and two children escaped unharmed, said Schertz Fire Marshal Glen Outlaw.
The occupants were home and had been asleep in the back bedroom. Outlaw said.
“One woke up, smelled smoke and heard the smoke alarm,’’ he h said. .. |
They all ran next door and called 911 from a neighbor’s home, he said.
The house was equipped with two smoke detectors, he said.
Outlaw said the fire was confined to the bedroom where it probably started, but smoke damaged most of the mobile home.
“The alarm came in at ll:04, we were on scene at 11:09, and we knocked down the fire within the first two or three minutes,” Outlaw said.
Fire officials were investigating the blaze, which they believed to be accidental, he said.

Your fiance may get his fill of cooking if he has to do all of it, and then he may be glad to let you take over. However, refuse unless he promises not to criticize, to give you a compliment now and then and share his recipes and culinary secrets.
DEAR ABBY: Some time Ago, you printed a letter about people
carelessly opening car doors in parking lots, marring adjacent cars. Paint nicks and surface dents barely scratch the surface of this issue. But car doors opened into traffic cause much worse damage — to bicyclists.

A growing Dumber of people commute by bicycles, and most cyclists will tell you that their most constant fear is getting “doored.” It’s happened to me, and although it was painful, I was fortunate that my
