1 Dear Ann Landers: Something happened recently that, made me realize the hazards of retirement not so much for the man. ho suddenly , finds himself with time Orv his hands, but for his poor'- wife, v, ' v , . t I have belonged; to a two-table bridge club, for almost, 20 years. We met every "week at the home ofone-of the members.' and all of us had a delightful time. . Last month the-women announced, rather mysteriously, that the club was disbanding be--cause there seemed to be' so many other things to do. Our fina meeting was' held two weeks ago: t . I heard this morning that, the club has been reorganized and-t was left out., The . reason? Since my husband retired six months ago the women dreaded coming '.to my home because band insisted on my hi hovering" over the tables and offering suggestions on how .to play their hands. I cannot deny that all they said -was true. FrartklyVhe gets on my nerves, too, out what can I. do abemr it.' Please, please suggesr5sonie-' thine. NOT-SO-GTOLDEN YEARS. ' Dear Not-SoGolden: Your husband need! an outlet for his time and energies so he will not need to hang around you and your friends, " . You know where his interests and his talents lie. Cef busy and direct them into productive channels or he'll drive you both out of your minds. . . . Dear Ann Landers; 1 am a widow who has been going with a man who is well-known and highly respected -in this community. He has one little habit whjch I find embarrassing., So far I haven't let him know that it , bother? me, but if you say to tell him.. I will. When' the waiter brings .
