How about a re-run? — B.D. FROM L.A. DEAR B.D.: Here il is. Happy lo oblige. A PRAYER FOR THE MIDDLE-AGED Lord, thou knowest belter than I would know myself thai I am growing older and that some day I shall be old. Keep me from the fatal habil of Ihinking I musl say somelhing on every subjecl and on every occasion. Release me from craving lo slraighlen oul everybody's affairs. Make me Ihoughtful but not moody, helpful but not bossy. With my vasl slore of wisdom, il seems a pily not to use it all, bul Ihou knowest, Lord, that I want a few friends at the end. Keep my mind free from recilal of endless delails, give me wings lo gel al Ihe poinl. Seal my lips on my aches and pains. They .are increasing, and love of rehearsing Ihem is becoming sweeler as the years go by. I dare not ask for grace lo enjoy Ihe tales of other's pain, bul help me lo endure wilh patience. I dare not ask for improved memory, bul for growing humility and a lessening of cocksureness when my memory seems lo clash with the memory of others. Teach me Ihe glorious lesson that, occasionally, I may be mistaken. Keep me reasonably sweet; I do nol wanl lo be a saint some of them are hard lo live wilh bul a sour old person is one of Ihe crowning works of Ihe devil. Give me Ihe abilily to see good things in unexpected places, and talents in unexpected people. And give me, 0 Lord, the grace to tell them so. * * * DEAR ANN: No big deal bul il bolhers me a lot more than il should. I loaned a book to a friend. Several months passed and she didn't return it. Finally I gol up the nerve to ask her if she had finished reading the book because I wanted it back. Her response rocked me. She denied ever having borrowed the book announced cooly, "I will pay for it." I do not believe a person would pay for anylhing if she didn'l Ihink she had borrowed it. Now, hear this: I have an item I borrowed from her. Shall I jusl keep it and tell her to forget paying for the book? - MIAMI BEEF DEAR BEEF: Your relationship is already pretty badly bent. Don't do any further damage. If the money is offered take it. Return whatever il is lhat YOU borrowed-regardless. And lei this be the last of lend- lease program belween you two if you value her friendship. * * * DEAR ANN: I used to think you were a square old bat. Whenever you'd advise someone lo discuss a problem wilh their clergyman, I'd say to myself, "what a cop-out." Well, I got in a jam and decided lo try my clergyman. He was so understanding and gave me terrific counseling. I couldn't have gotten better advice for a thousand dollars. This is lo say thank you. — LANCASTER TEEN DEAR TEEN: Thanks for letting me know. I hope others who think I'm a square old bat will pay some attention to YOU. * * * Do you feel awkward, self conscious lonely? Welcome to Ihe club.
