The day she tried it on for the first time I was sitting with Mother in the living room when my sister came down the stairs. The gown was a perfect fit on her petite frame. Mother's eyes welled with tears. I put my arm around her. "Don't cry, remember you're not losing a daughter, you're gaining a son." "Oh, I'm not crying about that!" she said with a sob.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Shelly Carter, 42, Cincinnati, Ohio Ohio Woman's Plot to Kill Estranged Husband with Kids in Car Is So Heartless the Hitman Refuses to Do It She was willing to kill for her “dream house.” An Ohio dog groomer was collared last week for allegedly hiring a hitman to zap her estranged husband in the middle of their divorce. Shelly Ann Carter, 42, offered an assassin $1,000 and a car to slay her 44-year-old hubby but the hitman had a change of heart, police say. Carter’s 23-year-old boyfriend, Ryan Stark, was also arrested in the plot. From an outsider's perspective, Shelly Carter was simply a dog groomer at a local business she previously owned. The Ohio mother of two was even described as "nice" by relatives. But the action she's now been arrested for wasn't so nice at all. Cincinnati's Local 12 News reports that Carter hired a hitman to crash into her estranged husband's car in an effort to kill him. Court documents reveal she conspired with her half-brother Casey Fryman and his wife, Sarah, in the murder-for-hire case. Carter reportedly paid the man $500 on September 16th and told him she would pay $500 more when the "job was done." According to WLWT5 News, Middletown Police found bankruptcy and child support paperwork in Carter's home September 21st, along with a shotgun. Carter was in the middle of a divorce proceeding with her 44-year-old husband at the time she planned to have him killed: As The Daily Beast reports, her plot was thwarted when the would-be hitman found out her two kids would be in the car at the time of the fatal crash. When he approached the children's mother about his concern, she said she "didn't care" if the kids died as a result. Christian “Tony” Carter, her husband, spoke to reporters Saturday and was completely distraught to learn of the heinous plan: Relatives said Carter was desperate to keep the family house, which might have been her motive in attempting to kill Tony. Family friend and spokesperson Amy Wray told The Daily Beast: "She decided she wanted the house no matter how she could get it," adding that Carter had threatened the children and previously made false claims of domestic violence." According to the Journal News, Carter's bond is set for $750,000. She's charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated murder. Casey and Sarah Fryman were also charged with one count of conspiracy to commit aggravated murder each for setting up the meeting with the hitman. Their individual bonds are set at $250,000. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Pennie RE: Need nice font Dear Webby, Hope you are doing well !!! Just hate for someone to be a little off the weather. I have a question for you today regarding fonts. I would like to get a nice one for my mail and recipes, what do you suggest ? Something like handwriting that is easy to read. I did check out some on the internet and there was free download but am so scarred it might download a bug for me. I value your advice very much. Take care and lots of health. Pennie *:) Dear Pennie You have to consider that the other side has to have that font on their machine. If they don't, they will see some ugly Courier New, or something like that. IF they have Duchess installed, that would be a nice and relaxed but quite elegant font, that is really easy to read. Second best for your purpose would be Guga Handwriting. Third would be Lucida Handwriting. It is very common, and a popular, easy to read font. You might want to field a survey amongst your fans and ask them if they have font A, B, C, etc. installed, and let that be your guidance. There is no point using a font, that nobody else has installed. Aside from availability, the only real concern is readability. For example, Palace Script MT is a very beautiful font and a favorite with wedding invitations. However, it is NOT a fast and easy reading font. On a wedding invitation that is OK. That should be read slowly, giving them time to plan their dress and their presents. If you, for example, decide to use Duchess from Micrologic, mention that to your readers, and maybe even recommend a URL for downloading it. Without availability, the most beautiful font is nothing. Have FUN! DearWebby The man walked over to the perfume counter and told the clerk he'd like a bottle of Chanel No. 5 for his wife's birthday. "A little surprise, eh?" smiled the clerk. "You bet," answered the customer. "She's expecting a cruise."
