I am writing in response to your response to George Washington [Tues, Nov.4]. I am friends with George and have seen the dollar bill in question with the invitation on it. It is very nicely worded. I suspect this couple has been contacted one too many times by strangers about their party because they took their names out of the phone book! Should we find them and return the dollar bill so no one else will bother them? Their party is being held at a beach and we'd like some fun in the sun! Could this be an adventure?
Best, Martha Washington
Dear Martha: If you would like to have some fun in the sun you don't have to wait for a stranger to send you an invitation on the back of a dollar bill. Get your beach ball and some liquid refreshments and high tail it down to the beach. Give the dollar bill to charity then you will fulfill two mitzvahs -- fun in the sun and help to some poor person.
HAVE A GREAT TIME ♥, BUBBY
I am a person of refined taste, but I am on a limited budget. How can I add a little luxury to my humdrum existence without spending the cash?
You could develop some fine friends by spending some time in the library or at a museum. Mingle with well read and educated people. You will gradually enjoy spending time with them. Get a job in the field of your interests. You'll meet people and soon you will have friends.
Let me hear from you after about 6 months.
