(TIMESphoto by Ray Gray) Do-lt-Yourselfer Resigns For Life By VIVIAN BROWN I AP Newsfeatures Writer Some years ago one do-it- yourselfer resigned for life. He didn't exactly jump off the family tree, but he snipped a few branches. Now every year about this time, his wife rereads the letter of resignation and daydreams ' about what might have been-the enclosed swimming pool, a new deck or a patio. After she rereads Hie letter she sighs and . throws away all the colorful projec pictures she had cut out of periodicals during the year hoping for a more promising " turn 'of events. Here is the letter that might prove helpful to a wife whose husband has Just embarked on the do-it-yourself path: DO-IT-YOURSELF ' "..I am the average do-it- yourself type American male-a small wallet, a strong hack "Â· and a weak mind--who is writing this resignation to relieve Â·his blood pressure. "In 10 years I have alternate' ly torn down and put back the ' old house 1 purchased in a weak (very) moment. Except for two summers when 1 revolted, I've had a decade of projects that have taken anywhere from one month year. to a _ know what it means to completely tear out a room in the house and do it over from bare wall studs to the $150 plastering job that the expert smooths on after I finish with the real labor. And I know ' what it means to add a room on a house. "I've taken abuse from my wife and children, my Englisl setter and even from the loca r building materials dealer, the plumber, electrician and the other dear-as-gold workmen that I've had to hire from time to time. "I've got this old-new place right up to my Adam's apple and when I pick up an issue of a popular home magazine tha 1 oozes, with honey and spice my blood pressure runneth over. , "Turn to any page in one o: those magazines and you'll fine '.: such diverse articles as, "Hov '. I ma!" i Small Cottage into i 15-Room Mansion,' or 'How Rebuilt our 100-year-Old House With Only One Hammer and s Bucket of Nails.' "What they don't usually Â· mention is what 'goes on be tween the decision to builc something and the finish line "The average do-it-yourselfe: . weekend-babe-in-the-woods ,typi .' usually talks over a projec with his wife. After a year o ', two of no-compromise he final ly gives up and runs to thi lumber yard where in answe Â· to his request for 14 2X4s h ' encounters further resistance. "The bored clerk with ; Â· blank stare poses a question: "Do you want 6 or 12 too lengths, 24 or 32 or what? D '- you want spruce or pine, cedar or what? Do you want No. 1, 2 ' 3 or a real rotten grade. Wha re you going to use them for?' When I returned from a short, vacation. I found one bedroom and bath had been flooded from a leaking roor. The carpeted rooms were still soggy and had a terrible odor. . ' . We had to have the carpeting all pulled out and thrown away. The padding was also thrown out as it was', sticky, wet and gummy. Consequently t!ie slab flooring was slimy and smelly! After cleaning lip this -mess, drying the area' as best we could, I sprinkled kitty litter all over the floor and.shut the door. Thank goodness, I had another bedroom and bath to use. I . kept the room closed 'or three.days and when opened the room -- no odor I- Remember I wrote to '-you before about how kitty litter helped in freezer problems. Well, knowing this did the trick at that time, using it as a room deodorizer seemed a good dea. I was told I'd have to repaint the room to get out the musty odor, but again kitty litter came to my rescue! Mrs. G'.R.H Dear Heloise: When baking, anything using eggs and shortening, try dropping an egg in the mea suring cup before measuring the shortening.' Stir the: e gg a little to make sure the white has 'touched all of the interip: of the measuring cup. Empty the. egg in the bow with sugar. Then measure you shortening and see hownicely i leaves the measuring cup! Mary Meac CUT :T OUT!! ' D.ear Heloise: Not being able to keep on "After a few minutes of deep hought the DIY (me) replies ;ive me those.,' FRUSTRATING "Frustrating decisions go on irough door frames, windows, iding and the different nails nd hardware needed. "The DIY dashes home with station wagon loaded with the materials and hammers hap- ily away over the weekend. iut then, like genies of doom, he kibitzers begin popping up. "From a neighbor he learns hat the wall will cave in unless e supports it while he is put- ing the picture window in. .His 'ife chirps up with, 'I thought ou were 'going to do so-and- o'..And one of his children loiiits out that 'a board looks rooked.' 'And then one day he finds out IQW much it all costs : for that ittle project. The bill arrives sting the nails, the windows, he 2X4s, the siding, and all the est. Then the little 'how to add a house on a room', type of hing starts to hurt right down o the shoes (Ihe'ones with the holes in them). ANSWER "My answer to the magazines s: how about just one issue on low to make the extra money o do the house project. Labor may not count for much, magazine-wise, but they are not Jiving away lumber, tools, and ;he other materials that are needed. "And as for the classy landscaping job that- makes a house ook fabulous (their. word, not mine)-- if you could afford that at all, you wouldn't need to do a n y t h i n g yourself, except maybe lie down in your hammock. .And that's what I intend .0 do from now on. 11 of the tiny adhesive bandage on. but needing something t cover a small cut, I cut on of the regular size bandages i half, the long way, and mad two adhesive bandages just th right size.

After washing it, I can get it very dry, so I take large terry-backed bib, put over her shoulders (so the bi hangs down her back) with th terry side up, and tie It unde her chin. Then I can comb her hair an let it dry without getting h back and clothes wet.
