Garden City Telegram Thursday, December 1,1977 Errna Bombeck's AT WITS END Next To Her, He Looks Young I'm always intrigued with those picture stories they do on the President of the United States that compare how he looked when he entered office and how, within a few short months, it has aged him. There was one in the paper last week of President Carter. The article was quick to point out that within just 11 months in office, there were "new furrows in his brow, deeper creases in his cheeks, fresh lines around his eyes and more flesh beneath his chin, ''Diamonds Hot. S55.95 ENLARGED TO SHOW EXQUISITE DETAIL c Pendant Headquarter* (or Star of Africa Diamonds suggesting an aging process unrelated to time." Big deal! Beside Delores Finfrock who just taught her teenage son how to drive, he looks like Donnie Osmond at a Prune Festival. Delores was a beautiful girl ... taut skin, smiled easily, with deepset eyes that looked right at you when you talked. I dropped in on her yesterday. "Dorian Gray lives!" I shouted. She shoved a slick of gum into her mouth without taking off the wrapper. "Don't kid around," she snapped. "I'm not kiding, Delores. You look terrible. What happened to your hairline? It couldn't be receding. "Of course it's not receding," she said irritably. "I may have pulled out a few strands when Roger pulled over and parked just to change the knobs on the car radio." "What's the matter with that? Sounds like he used good judgment." "On the median of the ex. pressway?" "You look like you could use a good night's sleep." "I haven't slept since he parellel-parked. I put two garbage cans in front of the house and told him to park between them." "What happened?" "He sideswiped our mailbox, ran down a 200-year- old blue spruce, and sunk the rear wheels over the septic tank." "You can't go on like this. You're looking more like Abraham Lincoln every day. President Carter looks better than you." "Why shouldn't he?" she snarled. 'All he's got is the energy program, Lance, the Panama Canal and Andrew Young." We heard the wheels spin, the brakes screeched and a garbage can rolled into the street. "Wait'll Amy'gets her temps. You'll never see those straight, white, smiling teeth again."
