Transcript Montrose Voice Phone Fun — Amanda — Horoscopes — Soap — Personals 4el. 2,1990 For the Montrose Voice COr-'YHlGHT I99U Aries Out in the open and basking in admiration! How nice, what fun! But please, try to maintain a little modesty, and for heavens' sake, don't pick up all the checks. This too shall pass, and the important thing is that it should leave you with a rosy glow, not a stack of bills. Taurus In the great leap forward you're attempting, just remember that landing can be hard. Look at endings as well as beginnings. New schemes bring new responsibilities, and the bright shine of ambition may blind you to them. Preparation insures happiness. Gemini Don't complain. Don't grumble about how hard you work. You're due for some recognition, and the best way to achieve it is to smile and let everyone else think you breeze along with no sweat. Even if it's not true, let others think you're on top of it all. Cancer Begin by accepting limits at work while you hide your plans for some startling changes. Then, do the same thing at home. Conservative elements will be won over by your caution, enabling you to ease into improvements you know are due in both places. Leo Think of yourself as a whole person. Limitations in your personal life inspire some doubt but, if you consider your success outside your home, you'll find the pride you need. What makes you unhappy is not your doing; wait for it to resolve itself. Virgo You should be right in your element. You're needed, you have specific functions to perform, and your duties are those that you can do better than anyone else. Don't question why you were tapped for the job; the answer is unimportant. Libra As much as you like to avoid controversy, this may still be the best time to present suggestions and plans for change. Reception may be cool at first, but your listeners are physically prepared. Be yourself; your ease is convincing. Scorpio Keep the faith. You know what's important, and you know that your project is on the way to genuine realization. Support for you wavers, and your own strength is necessary for continuation. This is no time to share secrets, either. Sagittarius Any blues you're plagued with should disappear when you receive that nice surprise at home. Your energy may ebb this time of year, and it's nice to know that help is available from loved ones. Let life happen. Capricorn You don't have to be told to listen to hunches. Something pops up in your head that lights lights and rings bells. The combination of new inspiration with a lot of well-appreciated support may skew you into a new path and new ambition. Aquarius What you hope for doesn't come, I'm afraid, but your setback is only temporary. Stay cocky and sure, and don't let disappointment show-at any cost. Attitude is important, and your flexibility will earn you new consideration. Pisces As you continue to battle minor brush fires of trouble, your success in meeting them and quenching them gives you added confidence. Finances are the latest flare-up, but careful handling overcomes that. Check for mistakes on your bills and paycheck. You come out ahead. A strange red invitation By AMANDA B. RECONDWITH The Montrose Voice Dear Fans, just when we hid thought all meaningful social life had disappeared in a fit of post Reagan, pre-revolution funk, we received a strange red invitation to a multiple birthday party. We are not totally alien to such parties, you know. When we were a mere tot, we were a hostess at a neighborhood mass BSE It was imite strange, however. We remember that all the other kids were spilling ice cream and shoving each other down in the sand box, while we busied ourself with rearranging the table ware. Oddly enough the party came to its climax when a passing storm spawned a frisky tornado in the vicinity, and the party was held at some kid's parent's trailer house! We all lay under the tables, screaming while the trailer rocked back and forth in the gale, and their strange little blue (our first look at a blue dog, dear fans!) poodle howled with the electrical wires above. Well, after quenching our childhood fears, we called for several other dear friends, and began to put on our party gear. As you must know, dear fans, Sunday parties can be strange things. One must always be prepared for whatever arises. Some Sunday parties seem as though they will certainly be real honkers, so we have shown up in our wildest rubber wear; with streamline Lycra swimmings underneath in case there's a pool—only to find that Mother is one of the guests, and there will be a grand regatta of Tupperwear passed through the living room. Other times, we have dressed in our most formal post-church gown (almost always black, even in summer!), only to find grown men swinging from rafters in leather straps, and assorted women snaking through the grass with gold Texas implants in their teeth. Because we already knew the birthday girls, however; we merely donned our favorite lime green garden frock with the cancer dots and matching brown Pekinese skin purse. We also knew that this would be one of those "stand up" parties, so we wore our crafty Lassie-Come-Home Paw Print Party pumps with heavy duty rubber foot cushions and bunion balls. We knew there would be trouble when we approached the house in Montrose and found yellow police tape around the yard, as if a murder had just taken place. Reading the tape.it said "Danger—Party Zone!' Oh oh. From inside, pounding drones of Donna Summer drifted across the neighborhood, but the inhabitants were either hiding in their storm cellars, or had fled the vicinity to safer places like the Heights or the Fourth Ward. We were greeted by every known species of human being we have ever met, dear fans. It was like Old Home Week, and upon the wall were the baby pictures of our dear hosts. Four innocent little babes gurgles and drooled up at the cameras for our licentious enjoyment, and next to them were more up-to-date pictures, where the girls were dressed in their Not So finery. Dear dear! Pink must be THE color these days, dear fans! And the two with the chicken heads simply made us gasp for air! Probably the most disturbing picture, however; was the picture of the little boy on the tricycle. He seemed perfectly normal, but when the picture was closely inspected, we suddenly noticed that he was wearing FINGERNAIL POLISH! Had he put it there himself? Did they allow such things for children in Denver in 1960? Perhaps anything is possible! Well, we bid everyone hello, stood around for hours, gaping and gabbing, and had a most wonderful time stroking beards, licking moustaches and guzzling Oatorade while hooting at firemen at the station next door. Finally, however, our feet had completely deflated, and we rattled home like a blown out Chrysler and fell into a hot bubble bath. After all, the next day was Monday, and we had certainly paid the price of another glorious Montrose Sunday bash!
