Whether true or not we do spend a great deal of money on cars and do depend upon them to support our modern life style. With such an interest in motor vehicles it is not surprising to find a large number of books published to satisfy the auto user. These range from picture books, to histories, to repair and maintenance manuals. thing She's 71 and still yearns for the real By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: This is my second letter to you. Please answer me. I am beginning to think that maybe you thought I must be joking. I wrote to ask where a 71-year-old woman could go to get silicone implants in her breasts. I hope you won't think I am crazy. I assure you, I am not. I have a very nice figure, but have worn a padded bra for 50 years and I am yearning to have the real thing. I have the money, and don't see what I have to lose. I am vain. I admit it, but what is wrong with a woman my age wanting to fulfill a lifelong dream? I don't have a husband to boss me around, so there's no problem there. Please answer soon, and don't wait unti I'm 80 years old. I think 71 is about as old as one should wait for an operation like that. 1 live in a small town in Georgia, but it would be no trouble to get to Atlanta. SERIOUS IN GEORGIA DEAR SERIOUS: Talk to your own physician and ask him to recommend a plastic surgeon. Or, write to the Georgia State Medical Society in Atlanta and ask them for a list of board-certified plastic surgeons. And lots of luck, lady. DEAR ABBY: Is this a serious problem? I am married to a man who wants me to tie him up, spank him, humiliate him, and treat him like a "slave" when it comes to love-making. We have fought, argued and even separated over this several times because I refuse to go along with his crazy ways. It seems abnormal to me. Or am I just not with it? Otherwise he is a good husband. He doesn't ran around, drink or curse. And he is an elder in the church. I don't want to talk to a doctor about this because I'm afraid he might have my husband locked up. Have you ever heard of anything like this before? END OF ROPE DEAR END: Yea, I've heard of it. The cardinal rule in love-making is: "Anything that goes on in the privacy of one's bedroom is all right as long as it's agreeable to both parties." Some mates will agree to participate in such bizarre games. But if you don't want to, your wishes should be respected. DEAR ABBY: 1 am an attractive 59-year-old widow. Although I'm in comfortable circumstances and have never had to work, 1 am far from rich. I am seeing a very nice man who has started to talk marriage. He is 64 and divorced. All he says about his circumstances is that he is "retired and quite well off," and judging from the way he lives and spends money he probably is, but how can I be sure? Don't get me wrong, Abby, I am no gold-digger, but I don't want to marry anybody unless I am sure that I'm bettering myself. How do I get the facts without giving him the impression that I am interested in his money? LAKE FOREST LADY DEAR LADY: What's wrong with asking the gentlemen to lay all his Jords on the table, and offering to do the same? If you're still not satisfied, ask your lawyer or financial advisor to check him out. (P.S. And if he's trying to "better" himself, doesn't he deserve the same right?) DEAR ABBY: Can't resist commenting on the letter from "Serious about him." A long time ago ! heard this saying regarding the search for perfecU'on:"'Fcr years I searched for the perfect woman. Finally I found h.-r....but she had only one fault. She was searching for the perfect man." NOBODY'S PERFECT DEAR NOBODY'S: It couldn't have been love; if it were, each would have thought the other was perfect, for perfection (like beauty) lies in the eye of the beholder.

ANSWER: "Florist clay" is great for this type arrangement, and your covered twin bread pan is worth about $18 in most areas. 3 Easy Pieces! Printed Pattern QUESTION: From a relative, my wife recently received one of the most beautiful cut glass pitchers we have ever seen. The pitcher stands 7>i inches high from top of spout, is octagon- shaped and in proof condition. We have learned from a collector friend that the pattern — an intaglio cut — is known as "Vintage." A mark on the base (interior) tells us that the pitcher was made by the Heisey Glass Company. Can you tell us if matching tumblers were made in this pattern with the same trademark? No one here has ever seen or heard of one. L K P ANSWER: Yes, tumblers were made in the "Vintage" pattern, but they are scarce. An example is illustrated on page 149 of Pearson's book, "A Study of American Cut Glass Collections." QUESTION: What are the old- fashioned "Charcoal" irons selling for nowadays? The one that my grandmother has is in the best possible condition, but it's awfully large. Its interesting handle is rather unusual we think. Two molded fish or dolphins hold the handle. A.G.

QUESTION: Among my grandmother's old things was an unusual old tin bread pan, made to hold two perfectly- round loaves, 12V long, and 4V wide.
