Dear Heloise: I wanted to write in regarding losing socks. I bought 10 pairs of identical black socks, which I wear all winter. Since they are all the same, I don't have to do any matching. For other socks, I don't wait until doing laundry to pin them together; I pin them together when I take them off. — Dee Van Dam, via email more

Dear Annie: My dad died of lung cancer a few years ago, and because of that, I abhor smoking in all its forms. The problem is I just discovered my boyfriend, who is a nurse, has been secretly vaping behind my back. I was shocked and upset not so much that he did it (which is bad enough) but that he went through great pains to hide it from me. Plus, he works in the medical field and should know better! …


Dear Heloise: My Whirlpool dryer belt recently broke. Since it's old and older appliances tend to last longer than newer models, I decided to have it fixed. I did some research and discovered it's very easy to open it up and get to the guts of the dryer. Unbelievably, there was a lot of lint and dust built up inside! Prior to repair, I was able to vacuum the entire interior. I would encourage everyone to look into their dryers and see if they need vacuuming. — Bev, Spokane, Washington


Dear Heloise: Thank you for all the useful hints and delicious recipes printed in the San Antonio Express-News. I am 92 years old, and I have a gift I enjoy receiving. I'm not computer-savvy, but my favorite granddaughter in San Antonio, Missy, is a whiz. She is a very busy lady, yet she gives me her time as a gift. She sits with me, and we pick out the items I need by cost, colors, styles and sizes, etc. Then, she does the ordering. The gift is her precious time, and that is truly a wonderful present. — Sue Miller and Missy, via email


Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for 42 years, and he has always had strong likes and dislikes. Four years ago, we moved closer to our son's family. Until recently, I didn't realize how much he dislikes our son's mother-in-law (she lives nearby the family also). …

Dear Heloise: I read the letter from Leigh S. of Boise, Idaho, in which she relates her problem of getting sticky fingers when kneading dough. I have a better solution than using plastic bags. Use plastic gloves! They cover your hands and wrists. …

Dear Annie: I read your column on a regular basis and completely agree with all of your advice. I am 62, and my boyfriend is 60.

Dear Heloise: I'm also writing in regards to the letter from Mary, in Texas, about ladies leaving their purses in cars. I agree that women should carry only small amounts of cash and credit cards when shopping. It's harder for a potential thief to get into your pockets than it is to grab a purse. When locking your purse, laptop or other valuables in the car, put them in the trunk. — Tom Boardman, in Ohio


Dear Annie: My roommate, who is also my ex-boyfriend, was involved in a car accident a few months ago. His car was totaled in the process, but he is OK and was not seriously injured. He had to quit his job but has recently found a new one that pays a lot better than his last. My car has become the primary car of use for him to get to work. I am working nights, and I have to rush home so that he can get to work on time. He is also making plans to work overtime on Saturdays without really talking to me about it as it pertains to transportation. …
