DEAR ABBY: If you can come up with a solution to my problem you are a genius. We have two children, 4 and 5. My widowed grandmother, who is 64, is always after me to let our children stay overnight with her. She loves them, and they love her, but every time she asks me I try to find an excuse so I won't have to let them go. You see, Grandma drives a car, and she is the world's worst driver, and when the children are in the car with her, my husband and I worry ourselves sick. You can't imagine what a poor driver she is, Abby. It's a miracle that she hasn't killed herself. How can we tell her the real reason we don't want our kiddies to stay with her? She thinks she's a good driver, and if anyone says anything to the contrary she gets insulted. STUMPED DEAR STUMPED: If Grandma's poor driving has been called to her attention before, she must be aware that there is some talk about it, so save yourself a lot of worry, deception, and pussyfooting, and tell her she can have the kids only if she promises not to drive them anywhere. DEAR ABBY: After 20 years of marriage, my husband deserted his family for a tramp who already had three bad marriages to her name. One problem is that my "ex" is very good to me and the children. He never misses a birthday or Christmas, and he gives the children money to buy me something special. He does all my house repairs and is educating all four children in expensive schools. What do I do for him in return for his generosity? Regularly, three times a week I am a "wife" to him—just like old times. This is not hard for me since I still love him. I am beginning to feel cheap and dirty about it, now that I am "the other woman," because he must be lying to his wife about me just as he used to lie to me about her. Now I don't consider myself any better than the tramp he's married to. At first I told myself I was getting even with her, but now I realize I am not hurting her, I am just fouling up my own life I know it isn't right, but I can't seem to help myself. Any advice you give me I promise to follow to the letter. Naturally, sign my name. TRAPPED DEAR TRAPPED: If you feel "cheap, dirty, and trapped," then the only way you can feel "clean and free" is to put an end to the "old times" sessions. You are suffering from creeping loss of self-esteem. I think you know what you should do: you desperately want someone to tell you that you must. DEAR ABBY: I am 46 and my gentleman friend is 65. When we go to dinner and a movie, he pays for it. I do all the driving and use my car because he .doesnjt drive. In fact, he '.doesn't even own a car. This has'nothing to do with hi»i# • financial situation as he isn't •hurting for'irioneyV> ; ' ' v ' TT ' Do you think I should pay for all the gasoline? Abo when we go on overnight trips [strictly platonic] who should pay for the motel? I like to be proper. ELMIRA DEAR ELMIRA: The gentleman should pay for everything be can gracefully pay for. But if you "like to be proper," I suggest you pay for your own separate lodging on those overnight tripi. . LOUNGE CHAIRS Wide assortment of covers, 5 or 6 price brackets. ALL STYLES!
