. • f Out with the Old —• In with the New DEAR ABBY: My husband is a saver! He saves old rnag- azines, newspapers, sports equipment, clothes, and all kinds of worthless junk. ,Our basement is loaded with it arid ^so is' our guost room. J am at my wits end. If I so much as" ask him -when he is going to get around to sorting that stuff, he blows up. A ye&r'ago ;his aunt died, and she never threw anything away either, so he had all her junk sent over here, arid we have it in bur garage. Don't tell me to send him to, a psychiatrist. YOU should be so crazy. SICK OF JUNK DEAR SICK: Your husband is a pack rat. This is fine if you have the storage space for if and it isn't a fire hazard, but that's rarely trie case. Give the old hoarder one week in which to clean-.house; and tell him if he doesn't do it, you'll call the Salvation Army, Good Will, or some church auxiliary to pick up the junk and put it to good use. Then do it. DEAR .ABBY; Recently we were invited to a wedding. For a gift we sent a sterling silver Candle snuffer. I just received a note frohi the bride, thanking us for the "darling little gravy dipper!" , • I was stunned when I read it. Should I call the bride and tell her? I'm sure she'd be very much embarrassed if she had guests for dinner and used a candle, snuffer for a gravy ladle. . • •; STUNNED DEAR STUNNED: If you really fear that she will use the candle snuffer as a gravy ladle, call her and tell her nicely. DEAR ABBY: I am 1-7 and am planning my wedding for next spring. My fiance and I both wanted a large wedding. The problem is his new stepmother. After his mom died his dad remarried. We were all real happy until we met her. She never combs her hair, refuses to wear her false teeth, and she is a mess in general. I would be embarrassed to death to have this woman in front of all my friends. My fiance doesn't care for her at all. Abby, are we going to have to'let all .our plans go up in smoke and have a small wedding because of this woman? We would appreciate your advice.
