It's nothing new, and it's not dangerous.

"I try to play against it as much as I can. I hope that perhaps he knows more than he is letting on, . he says. "Plus I think anyone ( in a state of infatuation is in a state of insanity." And Munson is infatuated with his new wife, Carly, played to the scheming hilt by Maura West. "Life has been so empty for him," continues Hendrickson. "He knows she has done a lot of dastardly things, but he looks the other way, not wanting to think about a separate agenda." The actor points out that it is difficult to maintain consistency during such a long run with the different writers who see things differently. "I'm the only one who has been here the whole time. I started out world-weary with a good heart a character with a good heart who made mistakes, who cut corners. I like the imperfect side of him. But I did not learn I came from Kentucky until I had been on the show for seven years. At 10 years I learned I was an expert ballroom dancer. Twelve years in, I found out I was fluent in French." . ' Hendrickson says the most difficult part is that the audience currently knows much more than his character does. But he takes pleasure in small things such as "Hal telling Jack (played by Michael Park), in effect, whatever went on with you and Carly, it boils down to my antlers are bigger than yours." As a matter of fact, what Hendrickson looks forward to doing is further exploring the dynamics between these two men. And he admits to "having so much fun working with Maura. The actor considers himself quite lucky in his chosen profession especially since the role started out as a one-day gig. During that time he was developing a reputation for his acting talent and his penchant for practical jokes. He says his best prank is unprintable, but he does admit to winning $20 from Scott Holmes (played by Tom Hughes) "by entering the make-up room flanked by four lovely co-stars wearing only panties and cowboy boots." THE LOCKHORNS bunny hoest and john reiner pany has the right to fire an, employee who may be putting others in dangerj If two married people are having an affair at work, the spouse of one might go off the deep end, grab a weapon and start firing. "Big Brother" DOES belong in the. workplace. It's th responsibility of owners to provide a safe envif ronment for their employees. Bob In L.A. ; Dear L.A.: Your point is well taken, and I agree it is the responsibility of the boss to prpf tect his workers. But a jealous spouse is less like ly to go crazy than an unstable employee with a grudge against a supervisor or a suicidal maniac off the street. Dear Ann Landers: I am writing about the woman whose recently retired husband was driving her crazy. She said, "Retirement stinks., How right she is. It is especially hard on a woman whose retired husband has no hobbies. : ; I have been a housewife for all of my married life. When my husband retired three months ago, I lost my kitchen first and then the rest of the house. It started when he began to taste things that were on the stove. He kept adding salt and pepper (because "it has no taste") and then water (because "it's too thick"). Then, he turned his expert eye to the rest of my domain. All of a sudden, I don't know how to cook, do laundry or shop for groceries even though: I have been doing these things for 35 years. ; . Our sons' wives do not have these problems. They have careers of their own and share the cooking, cleaning and laundry with their husbands. They get along just fine. I guess that's where I made a mistake. ! Now I know why God allows women like mfc to live longer than men. It's so we can have a little peace before we die. Please, Ann, if you print my letter, don't indicate where it came from. Totally Anonymous Dear Anonymous: Today's woman does not depend on a man to "take care" of her. She can afford to be independent because she has mar ketable skills and can take care of herself. I probably dig it out ot your subconscious. Or, if you find a willing "sole-mate," you can explore the reason together. Dear Abby: My husband and I are hurt and angry about a thank-you note our niece sent us for the $50 we gave her for her high school graduation. Her friends might think it was funny, but we don't The note read: "Uncle Jack and Aunt Judy: Thank you for the dollars and the card. Screw college! The cash will be used on wiser things, like a trip to Acapulco, Mexico (and alcohol). Love, Sally." Should we let Sally and her mother know how we feel? Or should we just give her gifts instead of money from now on? Irritated In Michigan Dear Irritated: Don't be so hard on your niece. She is no doubt feeling independent now that she is about to be out on her own, and she was trying to be funny. At least you received a thank-you note. There is nothing to be gained by confronting Sally and her mother. And by all means, in the future, send her gifts instead of cash if you're afraid she'll spend the money frivolously. . Dear Abby: I am a 53-year-old widow with four grown children who are not financially well-off. My deceased husband left me fairly well-fixed financially. I have several bank accounts that I share jointly with my 28-year-old son. The house is in my name alone. I recently met a very attractive man. We're discussing marriage, and he has moved in with me. He is twice-divorced and claims he doesn't have anything just an old car and some furniture he's had in storage since he moved in with me. Abby, do you think I need a prenuptial agreement? He is an honest decent man. Uncertain In Utah Dear Uncertain: I think a prenuptial agreement is an excellent idea. Put everything in writing before you tie the knot Good luck and best wishes. coasters, he really draws ... Picasso sketches. "I fool around with them," he said. "They take me through the arc of the play. It makes it richer for me." ' Other unnoticed things happen, too. When the actors are not engaged in scripted dialog but are supposed to be in conversation, they really do chat about the guy in the audience who can't hear, about the last cast party, about a close friend who isn't in town. And then there's Ian Barf ord, the bartender always on stage, often just moving around, cleaning the bar, scribbling in a notebook. Truth is, Barford is hot scribbling. "He's writing a play," Provenza said. "While the play is going on, he's actually writing a play. What a great metaphor for this play: the relativity of a play within a play." 'Rooster' ready to hit the road You can't miss Tom Bazinet's Jeep and motor home they're covered with seashells. But you had better look fast. Bazinet, better known as "The Rooster," is leaving town.

His progress will be tracked on the Internet. "He's a professional beachcomber," friend and artist Alan Patrusevlch said of Rooster.

Your partner opens INT, and the next player passes. What do you say? ANSWER: To use the Stayman Convention is tempting; if partner has four cards in a major suit youll find a safe place to play. But if instead he bids two diamonds, denying a major, you can't pass, and a bid of 2NT will invite him to bid 3 NT with maximum values. Since you lack the values to invite, you must pass.
