Dear Abby,

I've never written to you before, but I really need your advice on what could be a crucial decision. I've suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me.

I've been seeing the usual signs. The phone rings, but if I answer the caller hangs up. My wife has been going out with the girls a lot recently although when I ask their names she always says, "Just some friends from work, you don't know them."

I stay awake to look out to see who is bringing her home, but she always walks down the drive. Usually I can hear a car driving off, as if she has gotten out of the car around the corner. Why? Maybe she wasn't just going out with the girls?

I once picked her cell phone up just to see what time it was and she went berserk, screaming that I should never touch her phone again, and asking why I was checking up on her.

Anyway, I have never broached the subject with my wife. I think deep down I just didn't want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to really check on her.

I decided I was going to park my motorcycle next to the garage and then hide behind it so I could get a good view of the whole street when she came home. It was at that moment, crouching behind my bike, that I noticed that the valve covers on my engine seemed to be leaking a little oil.

So, here's my question.......

Abby, is this something I can fix myself or should I take it to the dealer for repair?

Dear Concerned,

If you are a DIY'er, get yourself a good repair manual for your bike, wipe off the area where you see oil and fix/replace the gasket that may be leaking. Its a relatively simple fix, but if you arent very handy with tools, then definitely get it to your local dealer ASAP.

Concerned, Concerned you have no complaints, you are what your are and you ain't what you ain't. So listen up buster and listen up good, stop wishin' for bad luck and knockin' on wood.
