Dear Abby: Dad’s other woman causes stress

Dear Abby: My father is dating a woman who is not only my ex-boyfriend’s mother, but also the woman he cheated on my mother with and left her for. I don’t want to be around her and have told my father this, but he doesn’t accept or respect my feelings. Being around them causes stress on my marriage because my husband doesn’t want to be around her either, and we don’t want her around our children.

It was an onion bed and it just started growing.” Gardner did plant a row of sunflower plants in that same garden last year, but the tallest one measured about 10 feet, she said.
