You warned "Boob" that a person need only take a look at his sweetheart's mother to see what she will be like in 25 years. Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! I was the oldest of five kids and came from a family just like the one described in that letter. My mother had no maternal instincts whatsoever. She never cooked a meal, cleaned the house or did laundry. The woman had a long, frightening history of taking too many pills and was a habitual liar. She embarrassed the family by getting herself arrested several times for bouncing checks and forging prescriptions. My dad wasn't much better. He gave us no guidance, was rarely at home and had several affairs — one with my best friend. By the way, Dad was a minister. Coming from that background, I'm sure you can understand the self-esteem problems I had. But I am proud to tell you, I pulled myself out of that mess and am now living a wonderfully rewarding life in a clean home with a devoted husband and three beautiful children. The worst insult I could receive would be for someone to tell me I am just like my mother. I have spent 30 years trying to be as different from her as possible. "Just Ann Landers Letters to Ann Landers •houldbe .mailed to P.O. Box 11562, Chicago, HI. 60611-0662 a Boob's" letter will be extremely discouraging to people who live in dysfunctional families and believe they are doomed. Please, Ann, tell them that life is what you make it. — Piano, Texas Dear Piano: Thank you for the evidence that people can and do rise above a blighted beginning. Your testimony is impressive. You have a right to be proud of yourself. Read on for more: Dear Ann Landers: I am darned lucky you didn't print "Just a Boob's" letter when my husband and I met 30 years ago. "Boob" blames his unhappy marriage on the fact that he was dumb enough to marry a girl from a dirty, dysfunctional home. If my husband had judged me by my parents and the ramshackle house I lived in, which was buried in junk, he would never have married me. Luckily, he had faith and courage. We are both successful professionals, still in love and have two lovely children and a beautiful home. Shame on "Boob" for a major cop-out, and shame on you for letting him get away with it. Among your readers, there are countless boys and girls from dirty, neglectful, alcoholic and broken homes who long for and CAN succeed in building a better life for themselves. I hope they don't let that lazy Boob destroy their faith in themselves and in each other. — A Cinderella from Philly Dear Philly: You've hit a home run while I was fumbling somewhere near the bleachers. Keep reading for another clobber: Dear Ann Landers: Your statement to the young fellow, "If you want to see what your wife will look like in 25 years, look at her mother," was totally wrong. My mother was a stickler for neatness. I'm a slob. She was a devout Catholic. I'm an atheist. She was never late for anything in her life. I'm never on time. Mom was always a saver. I'm a spender. She stayed with a husband who was abusive and unfaithful. I threw out two lousy husbands who were very much like my father. Those old cliches don't always fit, Ann, so quit using them. — A Cleveland Critic Dear Cleveland: Thanks for hauling me up short. I needed that. What's your sign? Astrological horoscopes arc for entortalniMnt purpoeee only. (Your ^Birthday May 11,1993 Advancement in your chosen field of endeavor is a strong probability for the year ahead.

' GEMINI (May^Wiineibj You're not'likely to mince w'oVds today/with people, who oppose your opinions and positions.

CANCER (Juna 21-July 22) Collective ventures have good chances lor success today, provided your teammate can offer to the endeavor as much as you can. If not. It may not work. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Someone with whom you'll be involved today might need a little push for a jump start, but if you persist with this tactic, it could prove counterproductive. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You're likely to be both productive and industrious today, and these are enormous assets. However, if you take on more than you should, this could disrupt the entire assembly line. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You have lots of friends who like and admire you, so don't push yourself into a group or clique today where you're not generously accepted. It might be a bad experience. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Nature has endowed you:with an adequate dose of determination and drive. Once you set your mind to something, you're not easily deterred, but, unfortunately, this may not be true of you today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Things should work out rather well for you today if everyone goes along with your way of thinking, but woe to those who oppose you. Opposition could become a heated, emotional issue. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) If possible today, try to devote your effort and energy to tasks or assignments that are of a mental or creative nature.

ARIES (march 21-April 19) You *ave a lot going for you today, such as good ideas, the support of friends, antfa possible assist from Lady Luck, yet there is still a chance you may not fully capitalize on these assets.
