Algona K<mtlth (tUBffcA (hjClHCC TMUftSOAY, NOV. M, W* - AL60NA, IOWA - Abby's Favorite 'Blessing' HAPPY THANKSGIVING! May I share with you my favorite "blessing" to be offered before mealtime? I think it is especially appropriate before the Thanksgiving meal; O, heavenly, Father, i We thank Thee for food and remember the hungry, We thank Thee for health and remember the sick, We thank Thlee for friends and remember the friendless. We thank T s tiee for freedom and remember the enslaved. May these remembrances still us to service That Thy gifts to us may bg used for others, Amen " V Faithfully, ABIGAIL VAN" BUREN DEAR ABBY: I,am looking for a beautiful/rich, nice, sincere single Woman between 25 and 45 who Would like to settle down with a plain, honest, not-,too-bad-looking man 1 33 years of age. (That's ME!) She could be a widow, divorcee, or bu:helor girl. I have been married and divorced once. No children, but I like them. I also like pets. I am an auctioneer by tr,ade, arid if 1 say so myself, I am good. I am a high school graduate and have nothing against Democrats altho I am a registered; Republican. I would even consider a movie star. (I mention this because when a pal of mine was in service, he got very chummy with one on a USO tour, and she said they were the loneliest women in the world.) How are my chances? j , SLIM DEAR SLIM: Slim! DEAR ABBV: My husband has been with the same company almost 17 years. Joe loves his work, and it has been good to us, but we have had to move six times and I am sick of it. I admit Joe has been promoted with each move, but, as 1 see it, there is more to life than money, and advancement. I want roots! My husband can't see it that way. The company wants us to move again. This time with more money and an executive title in the sales organization. I say that unless the company can positively guarantee us that this will be our last move, we should stay where we are. Am I wrong? WANTS ROOTS DEAR ROOTS: When a man's moving up and ahead in his work, root for him. And when age finally roots both of you, be satisfied.
