You have erred. A flabby handshake—you called it a "dead fish"—does 3 not necessarily jjmean the person Blacks enthu- jKsiasm or inter$ est. Sometimes simply means jj the poor guy has ['arthritis. I know ^because for % years" I've suf- sfered with the Ann Landers, problem, and it's an affliction I wouldn't wish on the devif himself. So 10 lashes with a Wet noodle to you, Toots. This one was a first-class blooper. —DON'T SHAKE, JUST'NOD DEAR DON'T SHAKE: My sincere apologies to you ,and to all 'others who are similarly afflicted. I had. no idea so many people suffer from arthritis in their hands. I think I heard from most of them. ,1 contritely accept the 10 lashes. And now, let's shake hands and be friends. Pardon me—we'll just nod. HI iH *. # DEAR ANN: Has the time come for me to roll the skeleton out of the closet and tell my children their father was a skunk? He has been dead 15 years, and because I have kept his -halo shining his children believe he was a saint. True, he was good to his family, but the man was immoral to the core. I put up With one love affair after an- other—even an out-of-wedlock child whom he quietly supported. I'm now • going with a man who would be an ideal husband for my sunset years. We plan to marry in 1966 when we both retire. Until then we must settle for visiting one another. When I go. to his city I stay with him (in his apartment) because I can't afford a hotel. Two of my children have stopped talking to me because of this love affair. The others are turning mighty cool. They •feel my behavior is indecent. When my oldest son said, "What do you think dad would say about this?" I was tempted to unload the whole story then and there; Would I be justified? —KEEPER OF THE CLOSET KEYS DEAR KEEPER: Sorry, Mother, but throwing rotten eggs at your husband's tombstone after keeping it neatly polished for 15 years will not justify your own conduct in the eyes of your children. You say you can't afford to stay in a hotel. I say, if you want the respect of your family—or anyone else—you can't afford not to stay in a hotel. * * « * DEAR ANN: I think you missed a bet with your reply to "Can't Figure It"—the person who wanted to know why some folks who have a lot of money and live high sometimes cry poor 'mouth. My husband and I might be considered in this category so I feel qualified to speak up. We both worked hard in our young- er days, we made good investments and, with a little luck, we managed to get pretty well set. Some of our friends and relatives who have had a difficult time financially often complain about their bills and how rough they are having it. My husband and I have discovered it makes them feel better if we cry right along with them. The old saying, "Misery loves company" is true. I believe that because of this policy nobody resents us or what we have. So pass the word, will you, Ann? —CROCODILE TEARS DEAR CROC: Consider it passed. And while you're crying Doll, drop a tear for me, will you please? * * * # Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Editor Lauds Girl Scout PR Aides Paul S.
