DEAR ABBY: I am a mom of two boys, 8 and 12. They both have best friends whose moms I like and I would like to be friends with. My problem is, when we set up a playdate for the boys or make plans, when the time comes around and I text them about it, I don’t hear back from them at all. I have even left phone messages a couple of times.

DEAR ABBY: I’ve been in a long-distance relationship for 2 1/2 years. We are now engaged, but haven’t set a date for our wedding.

DEAR ABBY: A friend of 35 years recently accused me of exposing her and her mother to COVID. She told me she thinks I did it on purpose because I thought so little of them. This is not true!

At this age, the old can predict, give knowledge or wisdom. Whatever it is, it is so. As tribal leaders, there are many elected officials that do not listen to their people. When making decision, they consider what their friends or relatives want rather than what is good for their entire nation.
