My wife likes to spend Sunday with her parents, so we go, and of course the TV is always going full blast with some football game because her father is crazy about football. My father in law [I call him "Coach"] begs me to bet, and just to please him, I do. I always end up with the winning team, but I lose money because he comes up with all kinds of funny "house rules" such as press bets, side bets, etc. Meanwhile, he sits there with a Cleveland Browns coaching hat on his fat head and laughs his head off. What should I do? KEN IN WOOSTER DEAR KEN: Keep the bets small and let the old gaffer have fua. Meanwhile, when you've learned his game, raise the ante and then YOU have fun. too!

I am not a snoop, but— SEALED LIPS DEAR SEALED: You say you are not a "snoop," yet you read letters that were not intended for your eyes. You can either keep your lips sealed and pretend to know nothing, or confess that you read the letters and ask Paul for an accounting. I think you'd feel better If you confessed and cleared the air.

ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, TUES., JAN. 30, 1978, Page 6 POLLY'S POINTERS Uses Plastic Wood To Fill in Nicks By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY—I am answering MRS. C. W. who wants to repair the nicks and chips on the legs of her organ. Such places can be filled in with inexpensive plastic wood. Directions for its use are on the can but a store clerk told me it also helps first to drive a small tack in the chipped place to hold the plastic wood securely. I also advise adding the desired color of stain to such a filling before working it into place. I have just used a plastic wood filler on a dining table leg and it holds fine.— MRS. C. M. E. 1 Polly's Problem DEAR POLLY—So many people now have candles in their homes and they seem to be the "in" thing. My question is what do you do when the melted wax covers the wick and there is no way to relight the candle? I hate to throw such candles away. Hope someone can tell me an easy way to remedy this problem.—B. D. DEAR POLLY—My young daughter loves to look at family snapshots but there was always the problem of her bending and ruining the pictures. At a sale I bought several of those photo cube blocks, filled them with pictures of people in the family and now she plays with them as blocks and can look at the snap shots when she wants to. Also they keep in good shape for anyone else to look at them.—MRS. M. B. DEAR POLLY—My Pet Peeve is with the cords on electric irons, toasters, waffle irons, etc. Those on irons are too short and heavy-duty extension cords have to be added. Those on small appliances used on tables and countertops are so long that they become a mass of tangles. Also, why are they almost always black when white or ivory would be so much more attractive in the kitchen?—M. K. cheaper.
