Transcript Montrose Voice Phone Fun — Amanda — Horoscopes — Soap — Personals QnitLtf, For the Montrose Voice COPYRIGHT 198!. Aries Someone who knows exactly what he or she wants {and exactly how to get it) looms large in your life's picture. Since you're feeling calm, enjoying a peace that comes from having done what needed doing, your joint forces should be quite—forceful! Taurus Your period of doing too much for too many is drawing to a close. You're learning very quickly where your true commitments are: emotional, intellectual, and otherwise. "Otherwise" is probably spiritual, since that part of your being is demanding your attention. Gemini Something at work could push you over the brink, bringing either a sudden change in that job or pushing you into an altogether new career. After the big moment of confrontation or realization takes place, you'll feel lighter, better able to present yourself in a positive way. Cancer Cupid's arrows make no sound. They fly softly and gently. The joy you and your lover gain from this period will bring strength and understanding to your relationship; Browning's words ring clear- "I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach." Leo You've made proper preparations; you continue to do what has to be done. Everything is in its proper place. Now, you're waiting, waiting, waiting. How you handle the anticipation is a kind of final test. Expect the unexpected and you'll triumph. Virgo Valentine's Day might pass you by with no notice. You're so busy meeting and greeting that you may not have time for a lover's holiday! That's o.k. if you lover is also a Virgo, but if not, take a break in the action, by all means. What's it all for, anyway? Libra Everybody loves a lover, especially one with your devotion. Your love is the kind that reaches back for what has always been there, stays constant in the present, and looks to increase in the future. Ring true? It should—if that devotion is to the right person. Scorpio You can be so dark and serious, but lo and behold, you can have a lot of fun! The inner you is dealing with very important long-range issues, but the outer is sending funny cards, planning a party, being social and loving both worlds at the same time. Sagittarius Your mind says it's winter and time to make cautious provisions. Your heart says if s spring and time to go out and play. Neither and both are right. Stick close by your lover's side and be spendthrift with your body and mind at this Valentine's holiday. Capricorn You might be love's best student; if so, your teacher is having a wonderful time. So many things in your world have changed your viewpoint. Your receptivity needs a proper guide, and Scorpio or Pisces could be most influential. Aquarius The generosity and gentleness of your spirit are bright and clear as your eyes; through them you see what is good and true in others. Your influence can be tremendous if you don't just stand back. Join in; embrace the love that is obvious. Pisces Speak words of love, and you will be heard. Listen, and you'll hear what you've been longing for. The noise and confusion of the workaday world will be silenced. Sincerity is the key; turn the lock and open the door of the heart. To Russia with love By AMANDA B. RECONDWITH The Montrose Voice Well, dear fans, Amanda was recently filing her nails next te a massive bouquet of sunny flowers, complete with bumble bees for authenticity, when suddenly the phone rang, and we were pleased to hear form Svetlanya—our dear friend in Moscow. We call her Svet for short. We had met years ago, when we took a tour of Moscow and Leningrad back in the drab 70's. Although it was summer; we had to wear our highest platform shoes to avoid the snow, and were forced to buy an enormous Yak pelt jacket with ferret head buttons to keep us warm! Svet was a sweet little girl who gave us our tour through the summer palace of Peter the Great. Dear old Fete loved to play nasty jokes on his subjects, and built hidden fountains into the benches and sidewalks- one of which shot up our dress and provided an unimaginable refreshment during our feverish tour. Dear little Svet laughed so hard, her wooden dentures fell from her mouth. It turned out that in Russia, they only had wooden dentures, and children were fed sugar cubes for reward. Because Svet had turned in her parents for being anti-Marxist, and had reported all her aunts and uncles for anti-Revolutionary involvements, and all her IS brothers and six sisters for flagrant anti-Soviet playground ac tivities, she had been rewarded until her teeth rotted out. Poor dean Well, Amanda took such pity on the poor girl that we measured her mouth on the spot (a horrible thing to do, dear fans, even under the most convenient circumstances), and sent her some real American dentures! Since then, we have been great pen pals. We were overwhelmed by a phone call! Of course, since our distant tour, Svet had excelled to the top ranks of the Politburo. Having real dentures had catapulted her into the upper nether regions of politico beauties. She had sat on the knees of several ministers, and had found herself highly thought of by dear old Gorby himself (she says his birth mark is real, by the way). Our first question was whether Gorby is going to stay in power. To this, Svet snorted in a delightfully feminine Russian way and said that she didnt know for certain. If he could produce, he could probably stay in power Ihe trouble is, dear fans, no other Russian leader has ever been able to supply even basic bread—how is Gorby going to satisfy the demand for Janet Jackson CD's and Reebok space boots? Svet was calling, actually, to tell us how fabulous the new MacDonald's was in Moscow. She waited in line for eight hours to have a meal, and thought it was the finest food she had ever tasted. Better than the finest Moscow restaurant! We shuddered so violently that Mona, our black cat, ran under the piano, as she had been taught to do while staying with Aunt Bill in San Francisco. But, we told Svet that we were very pleased she had enjoyed it, and that we hoped more delights were coming her way. She was ecstatic when she said she had heard a rumor in Gorky Park that Wendy's was going to open a store next year, followed by Kentucky Fried Chicken. Then, she asked what a Kentucky was. Well, we told her it was a place where the grass was blue, and she awed with wonder. So did we, dear fans. We remember going to the huge Mother Russia statue on the outskirts of Leningrad. It is the largest statue in the world—a monstrous 300 foot towering woman in wind- whipped robes, her sword held out by one arm and into the air, almost disappearing into the clouds. We marveled that her big toe was big enough to hold the Statue of Liberty, and we were deathly afraid of its ponderous size and power That statue was a product of the last revolution, dear fans. We hope there will be more striking representations of the coming revolution than the golden arches' far « LJ ■»_.. I ''_■'
