                                                                                      OH, DEAR

                                                                                  Carolyn Dycus

Dear Abbi.  My 39-yer-old daughter invested in a business while on holiday in the Virgin Islands.  I’ve just learned

the business is a popular bordello.  Should I worry about her decision?

                                                                                                                 Shocked and Confused Mom

                                                                                 Bordello Blues

               “Confound it!” Walter exclaimed.  "The town council still hasn’t done anything about that bordello!  I was

shocked when they licensed it to operate.  Now I worry about its effect on our young people.  Besides that, you’re

not supposed to go to bordellos except when you’re away from home on holidays.”
                                                                                Stan’s Surprise

                                                                           Nancy Forbis-Stokes

Stan stopped by Miss Sugar’s to get cookies for a Christmas party.  He opened the door to a room full of women

in shockingly skimpy clothes.  Had his confounded navigation system sent him to a bordello?  A scantily clad

woman called, “Happy holidays, honey.  Come in! Forget your worries!”

               Beyond the shocked expressions of the downtown holiday shoppers, bank president Simon saw flames

at the Palace movie theater.
               Confounded cinemas were cropping up everywhere, he thought.  Then he saw Helen’s worried face. 

Not a common chippie, but a beautiful bordello girl.
               “FIRE” – Yes, a burning in his heart.
