ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Don’t be afraid to talk to your daughter Dear Annie: Our daughter, "Mattie," is 42 years old. She has been married for 10 years and has two school-age children. Due to her husband's work transfers, Mattie twice was left alone with the children for several months while she tried to sell the house and her husband moved to the new location. The first time it happened, things worked out OK, but the second time, Mattie started drinking quite heavily. We didn't find out until she had seizures, lost a lot of weight and ended up in the hospital close to death with severe liver damage. She pulled out of it, but now we worry that she might be in the same situation. We visited her over the holidays and suspect she has started drinking again. She also seems very depressed. Her husband doesn't seem to recognize the problem. As parents, do we get involved? If so, do we confront Mattie or talk to her husband? — Terrified for Our Daughter Dear Terrified: Please don't be afraid to speak to Mattie if you think she is drinking again. It is a serious matter, both physically and emotionally, and needs to be addressed. You also should speak to her husband. He may be doing more than you realize, or he may be in denial or completely oblivious. Contact Al-Anon (alanon.alateen.org) for assistance and suggestions. Dear Annie: When my mother was dying of cancer, she chose to die at home and not at my "pious" sister's house. My sister resented this and made only brief visits during Mom's final days. The day the hospice nurse said Mom would probably die within hours, my sister stopped by and then left for a week's planned vacation. We postponed the funeral until she returned, and she showed up to the visitation in a souvenir Tshirt. After the funeral, Sis, as executor, didn't want my brother or me to go through Mom's possessions. Instead, she had an auction, and we had to bid on closed boxes. Many of the things we know belonged to Mom did not show up, and somehow, my sister's name got on the deed to the family farm. There has been no accounting of the income from the auction, and when we asked, Sis became angry. The final straw was that my mother wrote a personal letter to me but did not get around to mailing it. Sis found it, made copies and passed it out to everyone but me. I would like the original, but Sis says, "Finders, keepers." Sis now wants us to get together and pretend there are no problems. This is putting my "Christian attitude" to the test. Should I turn a very bruised cheek and pretend all is well for the sake of family unity? — Confused in Missouri Dear Missouri: Your sister certainly has been less than forthcoming, and the business with the personal letter is rather nasty. Did your mother have an attorney? If so, there should be an accounting of where the money went and what your sister was entitled to as executor. But you may need to sue in order to get the information, so decide what it's worth to you. It is likely to cause a permanent estrangement, and you still may not get what you are hoping for: your sister's remorse and an apology. Our condolences. Dear Annie: "Want To Do the Right Thing" wants to celebrate his parents' 50th anniversary but can't afford the restaurant and wants guests to pay for their own meals. We all want things we cannot afford. Most parents would not enjoy knowing their children are depriving themselves for a big party. Instead, arrange for a nice family photo that would be treasured. Then take your parents out to a lovely lunch or dinner. — R. Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

SUDOKU PUZZLE

HOW TO PLAY: Complete the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively. Find answers to today’s puzzle in tomorrow’s Troy Daily News. SATURDAY’S SOLUTION:

HINTS FROM HELOISE

Sound Off: Waiting to get sick in the waiting room? Dear Readers: Here is this week’s Sound Off, about sick children in a doctor’s waiting room: “My daughter’s pediatrician has the waiting room broken up into two sections. There is a ’well’ waiting area and a ’sick’ waiting area. When my daughter is sick and I take her to the doctor, I am the only one sitting in the ’sick’ area. Everyone else has his or her sick kids in the other part of the waiting room, contaminating it! I am sure I am not the only one who follows the guidelines and gets frustrated by this. — Sonya in Colorado” Oh my! The doctor’s office is where you should be safe from

Hints from Heloise Columnist germs; however, it’s NOT safe, in many cases. Arm yourself with hand sanitizer or wipes. If you are really upset, ask the receptionist if there is somewhere you can wait AWAY from all of the sick children. — Heloise ONE-POT CHICKEN RECIPE Dear Heloise: I remember you had a recipe for “One-Pot

Chicken,” I believe is what you called it. Could you reprint that recipe? — Janie in Utah Yes, I can! Heloise’s One-Pot Chicken, Potatoes and Peas is easy to make, low-cost and delicious. I would be happy to print it. You need: 1 cup chopped onion 1 cup diced potato (1/2-inch cubes) 1 clove garlic, minced 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley 2 tablespoons chopped celery 1 cup water 1 bay leaf 1/8 teaspoon thyme Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 cup canned peas 2 3-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breasts Take a large, heavy skillet and heat it. Add onion and potato, and cook over medium heat until they start to brown. Add remaining ingredients except peas and chicken. Bring to a boil and stir. Add chicken and reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook for about 12 minutes. Add peas and continue cooking until liquid is reduced, about 5 minutes. Serve and garnish with parsley. I have put together a Heloise pamphlet with all of my family’s and friends’ main-dish recipes.
