Smoke-free Grampa

Dear Queenie,

  Both my wife and I started smoking as teenagers and we both have serious health problems because of it, so when our children got to that age we gave them a big allowance every week as long as they didn’t start smoking and when they grew up and had children we did the same for our grandchildren.

  Queenie, I hope you will pass this idea along to your other readers.—Smoke-free Grampa


Dear Grampa,

  Here it is, and I hope it will work for others as well as it has worked for you, your children and their children.

  I am not a smoker and I am totally against the habit in others, not only for their sakes, but for the sake of everyone around them who has to put up with all the second-hand smoke and the health problems it can cause in addition to the unpleasant atmosphere it creates.
