For many years my tulips have taken prizes. Last year some new neighbors moved to the north of us. They k^ep chickens. But their chickens are not cooped up or fenced in to keep them on their own property so every morning those chickens head right for my bulbs. So far I have had about $200 worth of fine imported bulbs scratched that. She said nothing in the world could have kept HER away if it had been her child. She hurt me terribly when she said that. Abby, I have small children at home and no one to leave them with, and things beyond my control made it impossible for me to go to the hospital that day. Did I do wrong? HURT DEAR HURT: No. Your friend was just blabbing and tin- up. I don't want to fence in my mindful of the hurt she was property because it will ruin the causing— at Jeasl if she ts a looks of it; neither do I want to GOOD friend. start a feud with my neighbors. Have you any suggestions? LOVES FLOWERS DEAR LOVES: I assume you have already complained to your neighbors. If you have, and were ignored, ask your lawyer to write them a letter pointing out their legal responsibilities. If that doesn't work, you may have to sue.

He stormed around like a wild man, saying he never cared for blueberry pie because it took him two days to get the seeds out of his teeth, and asked why f insist on shoving it down his throat. Abby, I have been baking blueberry pie for 26 years (it's my favorite) and I always thought my husband liked it. T felt so bad I cried all night. Was I wrong or was he?

They are Mrs. Claude Eagleson, wife of the newly-sworn-in sheriff of Cameron parish, and her daughter, Mrs. Mervin Chesson, both of the Bell City-Sweet Lake area. Mrs. Eagleson won first place with her Creole shrimp jambalaya, and Mrs. Chesson was runner-up with a dish she calls "Rice, Crawfish and Shrimp Talk of the Town." Only a few percentage points separated the top winners, who were judged not only on the excellence of the dishes they prepared but also on their community activities and their efforts toward the promotion of rice as an important food and industry. Both winners received plaques from the Rice Council for Market Development, sponsors of the contest, and Mrs. Eagleson received a modern stainless ing in the arrangements was Patsy Granger, home demonstration agent for Cameron Parish.
