Officers for Fcuton church ire elected love and Respect Your Parents Now! By Abigail Van Buren , U 1t« »r CMctf* ttlHlH-N.' V. NMt »?*<„ IlK.t DEAR ABBY! I am 18 years old, and a freshman at college. When I was packing to come here 1 came across a newspaper clipping from several years back, which I had cut out of your column one day to remind me of what my parents really meant to me. I have read and reread this article and 1 hope you will reprint it so other young people will stop and THINK. Thank you. GRATEFUL "DEAR ABBY: I am the most heartbroken person in the world, I always found time to go everywhere else but to see my old gray-haired parents. They sat at home loving me just the same. : ". "' ". •'.'', "' ; , . , ';'. .': It is'too late now to give them those few hours of happiness I was too selfish and busy to give, and now, when I go to visit their graves and look at the green grass above them, I wonder if God will ever forgive me for the heartaches I must have caused them. ' . , I pray that you will print this, Abby, to tell those who still have their parents to visit' them,, and' show their love and respect while there is still time. For it is later than you think. .:.' _ ; ; ,./•• , ' ' •.,:;.•..;,•;•-;' ' TOO LATE - DEAR ABBY: I am the father of a 10-month-old son whom I frequently take for walks in his stroller. He shows an interest in many things, but he shows particular interest in women. In fact, he only smiles for the ladies. Do you think this could have a special meaning? What's the explanation? '" . x : , 7 WORRIED FATHER DEAR FATHER: The boy could he attracted to the more colorful clothing worn by women. Or he could be a chip off the old block! . ... , .. . . ., .;..•......'.. •".,.,- ; • c ,".-.,' , - : '-•:.:'.:• ';• - • DEAR ABBY: I am furious over an incident and would like to know what you think of it. : ; My husband and I went out for dinner last week, and quite by accident we met some friends who asked us to join them. [When I say "friends," I use the term loosely.] I'll call the man "John." ' -'When the check came, my husband asked for separate checks, but John insisted that we could settle up later. Then John's wife made a quick remark that we should let John pick up the check so hepould put it oh his expense account. John paid for dinner and drinks for the four of us and obtained a receipt for it. ., Now, my husband received a call from John asking for our share in CASH! My husband says it's no skin off our noses, that we had intended to pay our own share, anyway, so what's the difference who gets the money? I say, why should John turn in our bill as a company expense, be reimbursed for it, and put our cash in. his pocket?
