DEAR ABBY

Man laments, marriage has gone to the dogs
news single (Abby).jpg

DEAR ABBY: I’m recently married, and in my opinion, my wife has too many pets — seven inside dogs. She also feeds the neighborhood cats, so at any given time of day, there are 10 to 18 cats in our front yard.
The dogs inside have no boundaries. They have taken over the main living space. The family room sofas are filthy and destroyed, so we can’t use that space either, and it’s a total eyesore. The carpet is gone, and there is dirt and dog hair everywhere.

It’s starting — allergy season. Growing up I never had allergies. Arizona is where, because of the dryness, most people go to improve their allergies.
It’s where mine started. This year I am giving in to a doctor recommended over-the-counter allergy pill.
Has the pollen count increased, or have I become less resistant? Here we go again with yellow cars and yellow footprints. At least it’s a happy color!

Sometimes the truth can be hard to hear

in

I’ve been writing this column for 43 years and speaking publicly for nearly as long. If there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that when it comes to my subject matter, you can’t win ’em all.

Still alive and kicking — Jimmy Newsom, Sonar Man

in

Jimmy Newsom and his wife, Miss Fern, have lived there as long as I can remember — in the little house on Hico Road in Dubach with all of the beautiful flowers and the manicured lawn so thick I probably still couldn’t pedal my bike through it.
Since, like me, they aren’t getting any younger, I try to visit with what Tom Brokaw called the “Greatest Generation” every chance I get.

On Saturday the Tigers captured a second straight state title with a 59-53 win over Zwolle at Burton Coliseum in Lake Charles.
