The Salina Journal Friday, January 24,1986 Page 9 Kiss stabs knives in mom's heart Dear Ann Landers: We need advice on what to do about my husband's 7-year-old son by a former marriage. John and I lived together for three years and have been married since 1983. Junior was only 2 when his parents were separated. During these past four years we have developed a very stable relationship. He is with us twice a week for dinner and every other weekend. I noticed recently Junior has been drawing away from me and "forgets" the hello and goodbye kisses. Finally his dad asked him why. The boy replied, "Mommy says whenever I kiss 'Louise' I stab knives into mommy's heart. When I get home she always asks me, 'Did you stab any knives into mommy's heart today?' " Should we stop the kisses so Junior can tell his mother he didn't stab any knives into his mother's heart? We want an affectionate relationship, but we don't wish to add to the boy's Ann Landers NEWS AMERICA problems. — Blue Ridge Country Woe Dear Blue Ridge: You must not allow your stepson's thinking to be warped by his manipulative mother. His father should explain a kiss is a very personal thing and when Junior kisses you it has nothing to do with his mother or anyone else. If the boy shows signs of being depressed, I suggest counseling. He may need professional help to learn how to keep one foot in both camps without suffering from divided loyalties. Dear Ann Landers: I've been married 34 years. Several days ago I noticed the diamond had fallen out of my engagement ring. It's a third carat. Luckily my husband found it on our bedroom floor. I took it to a jeweler who has been in our town for at least 50 years. He has a good reputation. I asked him how I could be sure that I got my own diamond back when it was reset. He smiled and said I'd just have to trust him. My diamond was set in a circle of white gold. The jeweler suggested resetting it on prongs to make the stone look larger. When I got it back it looked fine. But after a week it didn't look like the same stone. Somehow it doesn't have the old sparkle. What do you think I should or can do? — A Wisconsin Reader Dear Reader: It seems highly un- Suitcase zipper fixed for low cost likely a jeweler who has been in business for 50 years would switch stones on you — epecially a third of a carat. (That's worth about $450, assuming the stone is of fine quality.) If you are suspicious, however, take the ring to another jeweler and ask if what you now have is a real diamond or a phony. Dear Ann Landers: Our son broke his hand while wrestling with a friend. He is 13 years old, so I am now officially the mother of a teenager. God help me. While we were in the doctor's office getting the cast on I saw a sign with the following message: Attention Teenagers: If you are tired of being hassled by unreasonable parents, now is the time for action. Leave home, and pay your own way while you still know everything ! — A Fan In Fremont, Calif. Dear Calif.: Loved it! Thanks for sharing.

State Farm is there INSURANCE Dear Heloise: I have a suitcase that closes on the side by a zipper and now it doesn't close because the zipper doesn't work. Can it be fixed? . — AnnaWessbero . I had the same problem with a ! favorite piece of luggage and solved it by looking in the classified tele- • phone for a luggage repair shop. '• They repaired the zipper, good as : new, for a surprisingly low cost. I ; hope you can find someone in your city to do this for you. — Heloise ! Dear Heloise: An idea I've come up with is this: When traveling, here's how to keep your blouses from getting wrinkled. Fold them neatly and put them in a zipper-type freezer bag, leaving some air in the bag. The blouse will not crush in transit and will look freshly pressed. — S.M. Ambrose You can even blow more air into the bag with a straw and have a crashproof blouse.—Heloise Dear Heloise: This hint is for anyone that has long fingernails and happens to have one split across the middle into the "quick" as happened Heloise's hints KING FEATURES to my thumb nail. I got the tube of quick-drying, strong waterproof adhesive glue and covered the split with some. Then I applied a coat or two of nail polish on the nail, after the glue dried. Women who don't wear colored polish can apply a coat of clear polish or hail hardener.—Edna Woolard Be very careful with the glue. Just in case, remember nail polish remover is good to use if the glue happens to get on your skin. — Heloise Dear Heloise: I find it frustrating when I need to write down some important information but cannot find a pencil. The solution to my problem is a pencil holder! To make one, all you Ft. Hays State Univ. at Washburn Univ. Sunday 1:30-3:30 pm need is a cardboard toilet paper roll and some crayons or markers. Use the roll and decorate it with your crayons or markers. Now you have a beautiful pencil holder which ~ cost practically nothing! — Tina Garner, Age 11 Dear Heloise: A bath board that fits across a bathtub like a wagon seat makes bathing much easier for elderly people who find bathtubs a problem and also for younger people who are convalescing from surgery or debilitating illness. The bather can sit on the board and scrub and rinse at leisure with water in the tub as deep as desired. To make a bathboard, measure your tub across the top. Use a board that's an inch thick, 12 inches wide, and as long as needed to span the tub. Then measure the inside of the tub just below the top. Cut a similar board to snugly fit into the inside measurement. Join it to the first board, so the long board is on top and the shorter one fits inside the tub to prevent sliding. Nail a two-inch wooden molding across the edges of the top to keep water from running onto the floor of the bathroom. Varnish or paint with enamel to match bathroom decor. — MyrtisHagee Dear Heloise: Our family loves cheese cake. We have it often. Since you have to use a spring pan to bake it, you also have to use the bottom of the spring pan to serve your cake. However to keep the bottom of the cake pan from slipping off the cake dish, I place a piece of rubber that is made to grip jars and remove their lids easily on the cake dish. No more slipping.—Joan Arrigo This ad made possible m parl by a granl Irom the Corporation lor Public Broadcasting Tell it to the Journal... if you see a fire, hear about a controversy, know someone especially interesting— The Journal would like to know.

One fish was too small yet to be left alone with the others, so I found how to make a "floating cage." I took the netting from a sack of sweet potatoes, two pieces of plastic foam, and two dowel rods which I sharpened. I folded the open end of the net (the other end was knotted) over the plastic foam and stuck the dowel rods through the net and into the plastic foam, forming the square. The "floating cage" sits in the tank protecting the small fish until they can take care of themselves. This method is very inexpensive compared to the store-bought solutions! —Cheryl Groves «k(Write to Heloise in care of Hints from Heloise, King Features Syndicate, 235 E. 45th Street, New York, N.Y. 10017.)
