^VALANCHE-JOURNAL—S«Wd«y M»rmng, April 5, 1975 LANDERS Hubby Claws Bride r Dear Ann Lenders: I am * newlywed who is too embarrassed to discuss my problem with anyone who knows me. I hope you will reply and not mention the 'iovvn I live in. 'Problem: My husband's toenails are so ,{}ong and sharp that I spend hours darning his new socks. He wears they only two .or three times and the toenails cut right through. At night he scratches my legs to pieces. I used to wear pantyhose to bed but he ruined so many pairs by snagging them .lhat I quit. Will you please tell me how to get my guy to trim his darned toenails? He .says they don't bother him and that . I -should get off his back. — Clawed In Tennessee DEAR CLAWED: You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, dear. Buy a little pedicure set and offer to take care of your husband's loenaJIs personally. He will find the sudsy water, foot massage and gentle clipping irresistible. Goodbye bleeding ankles and torn socks! •" * * * . Dear Ann Landers: My grandchildren range from 3 to 8 years of age. This last • .holiday was such a hassle I'm still not over ' J it. I bought the three children the same gift I/with slight differences, such as color and ; 'Size. They fought the whole day because all ^Uireo wanted the same gift. -' I told my daughter-in-law her children ^should be taught that a gift is a. gift and '•<thcy should be grateful for whatever they ', ".receive. She informed me in blunt terms. 1 .and I quote, "If you can't select a different .[gift for each child, based on age, sex and ; personality, then please give them all the ', -same thing and prevent a lot of fighting." Please help us ignorant, misguided ', -grandparents everywhere. Tell us if gifts presented on the same day should be simi- ' lar, dofferent or identical? — Bewildered In Memphis . DEAR BEA: Generally speaking. ' the • 'age, sex and interest of each chiJd should be n>ear Heloise: . .How often do we all put a 1'small dish of food left from a" meal in the fridge and "theft a week la.ter find it •^nd throw it away? '"•""I have found a way to use, .up, these dabs and also '•make .someone happy. - *I put any leftovers in a jmall container and pop ii "into the freezer. J-When frozen, I transfer it to.a small plastic sandwich ;bag, seal and then put in a .frtastic bread wrapper. -"When the sack is full I .take it to my widowed aunt, •taking care to pack it so it .doesn't thaw. Each sand- •vjjich bag usually, makes her "a. nice single serving. -•It has not only cut her ;fpod bill, but she eats a better variety as sometimes who live alone do cook a good meal very often. ; fShe is always so thrilled When I appear with my 'goodies and I am pleased at Seing able to help -her and •avoid throwing away good food. * Mrs. Ken Smick -Great! One could pop the vyhole bag in their freezer and usa as needed. Thanks, you are a honey bear! '. Heloise * * # Dear Hdoise: With the girls coming to coffee one hectic morning, I discovered to my dismay that I was out of blue toilet bowl cleaner. - My solution: I used disinfectant, plus some blue food coloring. Thought I was all set. • Result: The joke was on me because the blue lasted only for one guest. Mrs. J.C. '•' * * * Dear Heloise: . 'I eat a.lot of salads and use vinegar on so many things that I finally came 'up with a way to have it handy without having the •Bottle out. I took 'a large ceramic salt shaker, and filled it with vinegar. ;" It looks nice on my table, and shakes just the right .amount out, and distributes lit-evenly instead of a glop '*in just one place. .'_! wish I had thought of ;this before. Bachelors [usually find the easiest 'way. don't they . ,?-:!. (Mr.) K. Ashley . Betcha they do, Mr. Ashley. And the top of the day to you, sir! considerrd when. selecting a gilt. Your grandchildren, however, seem extremely competitive — so, unless you can g*t some clue from their, mom as to what each might like, it- would be safer to buy them all the same gift and -keep the blood off the rugs. ... ' ' * .V '*.'•' Dear Ann Landers: I know you must be sick to death by this time of the all-boy all-girl family mail, but I do hope you will find room for just one more. My husband and I had three beautiful daughters. They are almost grown up now, but I remember so well a certain next-door neighbor who used to yell over the fence — "Hey, when are you going to have a boy?" (Sde was' disgustingly smug about having had two of each.) After &'third time I shouted back, "When tlie girls ', grow up and get married we'll have the pleasure of thi-ee fine sons'>and someone else will have had the job of raising them. Sons always go over to the wife's family, you know.' 1 That was the last time I heard a peep out of her. I hope you will print UN'S letter >so "Mother Of A Harem" will see it. Everyone needs a "comeback with a sting in it now and then. This could be hers. — Wouldn't Trade 'em For The World DEAR WOULDN'T TRADE: Thanks for a lovely what-for. This should net you a new friend. * * * CONFIDENTIAL to Disappointed In Her And Freling Betrayed: Why did you expect her to respect the confidence? You didn't when you passed on that choice bit of gossip. Let this be a lesson to you. Keep your lip zipped and you won't have to worry about being "betrayed." .* * •* . Ann Landers will be glad to help -you with your problems. Send them to her in care of The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, P. O. Box 491, Lubbock, Tex., 79408, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
