Not holding up his end

Dear Annie: Six years ago, I divorced my alcoholic, workaholic husband and became a single parent. My ex has regular visitation, but I am the one who handles all the sick days, school conferences, injuries, etc. He never bothers. Shortly after the divorce, I had to take a job at a much lower salary. There […]

The hand I hold will never hold me down

Two years ago Sunday, I married my best friend. And I’m thrilled to report that marriage hasn’t changed that. Known as The Cutest Man In The World (TCMITW) to those of you who’ve followed this thread for the last decade or so, Joe is proof positive that soulmates really do exist. I know I’ve found […]

When nature calls, you can’t put it on hold

DebraDeAngeloW The best part of last week’s story about my adventures in radio commercials is the part I didn’t tell: getting there. But first, some context. I have the bladder of a hamster. And my urgency ratio is directly linked to my stress level. The higher the stress, the greater the urgency. If I’m anxious […]

Trip to Gettysburg not my usual type of vacation

Enterprise columnist Whenever I have pictured myself as a soldier, something IÕve done many times over the years, especially during the Vietnam era, IÕve imagined myself feeling totally out of place in war. I imagine myself going along with whatever IÕm supposed to do, because IÕm basically obedient and a conformist, but keeping my thoughts […]

Why does she behave like this?

Dear Annie: I have a 40-year-old daughter who is lazy. When she injures herself, has surgery or is sick, I wait on her like she’s a baby. But I recently needed surgery myself, and she has no interest in helping me at all. A while back, I hired someone to clean her bedroom. It took […]

Parents dealing with heartbreak

Dear Annie: You often print letters from older parents dealing with rejection from their adult children. This is literally an epidemic everywhere. Anger and hatred are destroying families. My husband and I have three adult children who were the delight of our lives. We had a typical loving family, with vacations, birthday parties and special […]

Work environment is intolerable

Dear Annie: My supervisor rarely states his desires clearly. But if I take the initiative or ask him to clarify, he makes me feel like an idiot. He is condescending and highly critical of most people. He also is a nonstop gossip. He has portrayed me to others as racist, womanizing and incompetent. He has […]

Ken Steen-Olsen

Jan. 25, 1928 – Oct. 31, 2013 “I’ve had a wonderful life,” Ken always said when he reminisced. “I was born in Bergen, the original capital of Norway for hundreds of years. My father, Elias, was a lawyer, Supreme Court advocate, playwright, car dealer, and a baker in his father’s bakery. I think he was […]
