HAGAR THE HORRIBLE By Dik Browne PEANUTS I'VE AL.UIAYS UIANTEP TO SAY THAT.. THE BORN LOSER Maintenance tips for Mother's Day Dear Ann Landers: I thought you might want to print this on Mother's Day. I don't know who wrote it, but it touched my heart. — A Fan in Fort Worth Dear Fort Worth: It touched mine, too. Thanks for sending it on: Mothers: How to Keep Them Running Smoothly Perhaps mothers should come with a maintenance agreement which provides a complete overhaul every Five years and after three kids or 300,000 miles, whichever comes first. Here are several points which ought to be included: FUEL: While most mothers will run indefinitely on hot coffee, pizza and hamburgers, an occasional gourmet meal for two in elegant surroundings will add immeasurably to increased efficiency. MOTOR: A mother's motor is probably one of the most dependable anywhere. A mother can reach top speed from a prone position ai the sound of a single cry from a sleeping child. To keep that motor at peak efficiency, regular breaks are recommended. A leisurely bath and nap every 1,000 miles, a baby sitter every 10,000 miles and a two-week, live-in siller every 100,000 miles will do wonders. CARBURETOR: When a mother's carburetor floods, it should be attended to immediately with a tissue and a soft shoulder. BRAKES: Use them often, and Ann Landers Letters to Ann Landers should be mailed to P.O. Box 11562, Chicago, III. 60611-0562 slow to a full stop regularly — to look at a flower, chat with a friend or pat a dog. Remember that the race is not always to the swift and that there is more to life than increasing its speed. CHASSIS: A mother operates best when her chassis is properly maintained. Regular exercise should be encouraged. When the chassis begins to sag, there are a number of effective remedies, including walking, jogging, working out, tennis and a low-cal, fat- free diet. TUNEUPS: Mothers need regular tuncups. Compliments arc the cheapest and most appreciated. Flowers, candy or other thoughtful gifts such as a hug and a kiss can work wonders. Nothing keeps a mother equipped to deal with the detours of Hlc like a good sense of humor, which should be kept in the glove compartment of her heart at all times, pulled out and used on a regular basis. By following these simple instructions, the average mother should last a lifetime, to provide love and nurturing to those who need her most. Dear Ann: This is for "Ohio Hobbyist," who complained that wedding announcements in the papers were getting embarrassingly tacky. I agree with him but was amazed that you failed to educate the .ignoramus. Surely you know that space for these announcements is paid for by the parties involved. Consequently, people can include any information they wish, just as they can in a classified ad, and are not restricted in any way except for outright obscenity. You usually do a decent job, but this time, you fell flat on your face. — Houston Dear Houston: Sorry, you are mistaken. We did some checking, and the policy varies from newspaper to newspaper. The New York Times, Chicago Tribune and The Sacramento Bee do not charge anything for wedding announcements, and the editors handle the wording. The Dallas Morning News does the same but also offers an unedited version if you want to pay for it. The Los Angeles Times charges a special rate, and there's no editing as long as there is no obscene or racist language. The Hamilton, Ont., Spectator has the same policy, but announcements for 50th wedding anniversaries and 100th birthdays arc free. What's your sign?
