If he buys something expensive anyway, give it back. Dear Ann Landers: I have a great boy friend but he's soft in the head when it comes to playing the ponies. I told him I wasn't lending him any more money to throw away on bets. He promised he'd lay off. A few days ago he phoned to say he had a sure thing from a guy on the inside.

He wanted a century. I said no. An hour later he dropped by my little place of business and said he had to go to Peoria to see his sick mother and the garage wouldn't let him have the car unless he paid the $100 repair bill. I let him have the money. Now I'm mad at myself.

I think he made up the story about his mother. What does this sound like to you? -Pidge Dear Pidge: It sounds like the horse was sick.
