Dear Abby 8/29

DEAR ABBY: I'm hosting what's called a Naked Ladies Party. It's where all the women come over with all the clothing, accessories, jewelry, etc. they no longer want. We strip down to our skivvies, try on each other's stuff, then vote on who should get to keep it. (Basically, we just swap items to get new ones.)

Ask Dr. Gott 8/29

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am 78 years old. When I was 76, I developed a cough and mucus in my throat. I have never smoked, so my doctor told me it was from allergies. I have never had allergies before. He prescribed Allegra-D, to be taken twice a day on an empty stomach. I take it diligently, but most times I find the pills still whole in the toilet after having a bowel movement. My husband cleans the septic tank every year and asked me who was throwing away pills. I am too embarrassed to tell my doctor about it ...
