DEAR ABBY: I'm a man in my mid-70s, and I'm beginning to understand why some old people are annoying cranks. It has something to do with the nearly constant physical, emotional and spiritual pain. (And if you're not sleeping well as a result, that only makes things worse.)

DEAR ABBY: I’m having trouble with a friend, “Julie.” We have been close friends for about five years. Julie is 29, still a virgin and lives at home. I never thought much about her living at home but, as the years go by, her living arrangements have become more front and center.

Do you long for the days when the only outbursts our delicate ears had to worry about were the Z word ("Zoinks!") and the J word ("Jinkies!")?

Children composing letters to Santa know you must prioritize. A wish list with 37 items may lead to a heap of presents, but not necessarily the items you want the most. It’s better to keep the total short, and possibly limited to only one or two requests, in order to unwrap your most desired gifts.

Sometimes I long for us in Sweetwater County, especially in Rock Springs, to develop a White Mountain Trail linking I-80 at the A & W Root Beer exit all the way north to the Wild Horse Loop at 14-mile hill on 191. White Mountain is a beautiful area, but we need a nice paved walking and b…
