“Blow, blow, thou winter wind,
“Thou art not so unkind
“As man’s ingratitude.”
I think I know why Shakespeare used “man’s” ingratitude here: For years I have been mailing checks to soliciting graduates who have thoughtfully sent me announcements of their graduations.
The girls, God bless their thoughtful, grateful hearts, are batting IOO percent in written “thank-you’s,” whereas, from at least 75 percent of the boys, the only acknowledgment for receipt of gifts is the endorsement on the back of the check. (It is heartening, however, to know that at least the boys can write!)
Now, a bended knee plea to you prospective male grads: Under your endorsement, at least scratch out a “thanks."
No, Abby, amend that to read: “Look, kid, from now on please write a thank-you note.” I am swearing off the thankless sex.
TEED OFF IN TEXAS
DEAR TEED OFF: For shame! I know not your gender, nor do I want to know , but pray, judge not all males as thoughtless, lazy ingrates.
Shakespeare undoubtedly used “man" to denote all mankind, which included womankind as well. However, to revise all classic literature in an attempt to desex it. would be a man (or woman (-sized job.
DEAR ABBY: I’lease settle an argument I’m having with my sister-in-law. Her husband died four years ago, and she has never bothered to change the utility bills or credit cards to lier name. All her bills are addressed to “Mr. and Mrs.” just as though her husband were still living. (There is still a phone listing for “Mr. and Mrs.”) She says as long as the bills get paid. it doesn’t matter w hose name they are in. Nor does it matter how she’s listed in the phone
Is it legal to transact business using a dead man’s name?
PERPLEXED IN PA.
DEAR PERPLEXED: A Philadelphia lawyer can tell you what's legal, but why is this a cause for argument? lf your widowed sister-in-law, for any reason, wants to retain her charge accounts and telephone listing in the name of “Mr. and Mrs.,” why should you care?
DEAR ABBY: This is a reply to “Bitter Daughter” who complained about having to “entertain” friends and relatives she hadn’t seen in years following her 85-year-old mother’s funeral. Daughter asks, “Where were all these criers the last four years when Mother was in a nursing home, waiting for someone to come and visit her? ”
First, my sympathy to the daughter. Then my question to her: How many friends did you invite to your mother’s 80th birthday party? And how' many times did you phone her “cronies” and offer to pick them up and take them to visit your mother? Did you arrange little parties for your mother at the nursing home? Nothing elaborate — just one or two of her friends and some iced tea, cookies and ice cream.
As we sow, so shall we reap. It seems so strange to me that those who have never put themselves out for others expect so much for themselves when the going gets rough.
My own mother lived life to the fullest and gave of herself as long as she could. Toward the end, the hospital halls were filled with friends because she had been a friend to so many.
Maybe this message will help those who still have time to give of themselves. They w ill be rewarded.

M RI6HT OVER
By STELLA WILDER FRIDAY. JULY 9
Burn today, you are highly independent. You prefer to do your own work in your own time and way. You insist un choosing your own friends, making your own foes -- and dealing with both according to your own vision. You possess tremendous executive talent - and the wisdom to delegate authority that goes with it. You know how to take a project from inception to completion -- but you prefer to do it from the cat-bird seat, allowing lesser talents to deal with the details while you contemplate and design the overall picture.
You are innovative at least, inventive and completely original at most. You prefer - if, indeed, you must walk the beaten path -- to leave some mark of your passing behind you, even when engaged in the most mundane, most usual enterprises of daily life.
Also born on this date are: Elias Howe, inventor; Richard Roundtree, actor; William Anthony McGuire, playwright.
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.
SATURDAY, JI LY IU
CANCER (June 21-July 22) - Rest! lf you insist on keeping up the pace of the week’s work days, you will suffer loss iii the future.
LED (July 23-Aug. 22) - Make progress early in the day iii terms of at-home money-making projects. Refuse to worry about yesterday.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Make an effort to bring even younger family members into the latest domestic enterprise. Gain by evening.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) - Check uito a story before you act on it. It may be that, w hether friend or foe, another wishes to “get" you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) - Intensify your search for the truth of the matter when children and present difficulties are concerned.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. 21) - Domesticity is the key to .success today and throughout the weekend. Deliver on a promise by evening.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22- Jan. 19) - An air of romance overlies all you do today. Members of the opposite sex may be quite “taken” with you now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) - You may actually strike it rich today. Don’t be surprised to find yourself ahead of the pack -- in many ways!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) - Circumvent difficulties by calling the shots as you wish them, not necessarily as you seethem. Gams at eve.
ARIES (March 21- April 19) - Consolidate, whether in terms of material assets or spiritual attitudes. Make the least pay off the most.
TAURUS (April 20- May 20) - First impressions eoynt most today. Don’t allow yourself the luxury of acting out of your shyness. Speak up!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Promote yourself and your work. Otherwise, you may find that one of lesser talent moves ahead of you -- for good!
