DEAR ABBY: I agreed to be maid of honor at my best friend's wedding. I am now planning her bridal shower and just received the guest list from her mother and the groom's mother, "Alicia. " Alicia has given me the names of about 30 guests and says there are more people she wants to invite. Abby, the entire list will amount to nearly 70 guests! I thought showers were supposed to be for close friends and family only. Would it be out of line to suggest to Alicia that if she wants to invite that many people, she should give a separate shower?

JUST LIKE IN A FAIRY TALE, the Handsome Prince kisses Snow White as they arrive at the Franklin Institute for a bridal shower, given by about 20 children of staff members at the institute. The engaged couple, part of Walt Disney's "World on Ice," were helping yesterday to promote the institute's new exhibit, "Amazing Mazes and More," which runs through Sunday.

NEW YORK - It turns out Philadelphia was represented after all at the Atlantic Ten men's basketball tournament Saturday. The city's sole remaining rep strolled out on the court at halftime of the St. Louis-Butler semifinal. Brad Baer, an adjunct professor at Temple, teaches a course on "design, entrepreneurship, and hacker culture. " He was picked via text to take a half-court shot, $10,000 on the line. He was the second contestant. "The first guy didn't get it past the three-point line," said Baer, also creative director of an interactive design company in Northern Liberties.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I may just need a swift kick ... but, I have a friend who constantly bails at the last minute. I am OK with being the one who puts in the effort and always know when I make plans that she's going to bail, so I'll probably end up with a nice evening to read/watch a movie/whatever. Well, I'm getting married, and have invited her to my wedding. When a mutual friend of ours got married, she RSVP'd yes but didn't show. My bridal shower is tomorrow and she canceled today.

Question: I would like to get a female perspective on this, please. I have two grown granddaughters. We had a very good relationship when they were growing up, and each had a lovely church wedding. In My Day the bridal shower was a way to get female members of both families together and was a lot of fun. All females of both families were invited. My problem: I was not invited. I am presentable and I know my manners. The mother of those girls and I did not get along well, and I wonder if it was her influence to omit me. Or, is it a new custom?

Five million to six million gallons of water rushed through Old City when a water main burst Saturday afternoon, disrupting traffic, water service, businesses - and a bridal shower. The 36-inch transmission pipe, which does not supply water directly to the surrounding area, broke at 12:15 p.m., sending water gushing at least two feet into the air. Debra A. McCarty, Water Department deputy commissioner of operations, said the pipe usually carries more than 100 million gallons per day, or almost 70,000 gallons per minute.

Question: Recently, the husband of a woman in our friend group died. We are in our 20s and the death was a huge shock, especially to the wife, my friend. The funeral was held about four hours away. Many of us coordinated the drive to the funeral. One of my closest friends, who was also close to the wife, refused to go. Her reasoning was that she didn't want to sit in a car for that long on a Saturday, and that she would just call our friend later. Her reaction seems so callous to me that I'm still upset by it. Now I'm seeing that it fits into a larger pattern of her actions.

It's the strangest television animal: A life-affirming, one-hour family show that is neither cloying nor idiotic, but actually joyful and funny. There's a new one this fall: CBS's That's Life. It will premiere Sunday at 8 p.m. "Buttafucco Contractors," reads the sign on Lydia DeLucca's boyfriend's truck. "No relation," it says in parentheses underneath. There must be other Buttafuccos, Buttafuocos and Buttafuquos in this world, the producers thought. Like us, some of them probably have a sense of humor.

Your best friend calls to tell you she's just got The Ring. She's engaged. Your mind races: Will she or won't she ask you the Big Question? You've shared everything over the years. Why not the Big Day, too? Memories of weddings past creep into your head. . . . That purple frou-frou number your cousin ordered you to wear that set you back $250. . . . The nasty arguments over who's paying for what at the bridal shower. . . . Those horrible dyed shoes that left you with permanent corns.

Where were you when the Blizzard of 1996 hit? How did you survive? How will you recall it years from now? There have been other monster snowstorms in the Philadelphia region, of course: the 21-inch snowfall of Christmas Day 1909 and the 15-inch snowfall of March 1, 1941, to name two golden oldies. Living through a blizzard in 1996 was wonderful and weird. Painful. And memorable. If a supreme being is responsible for snowstorms, is a supreme being understanding when worshipers stay home during a Sunday blizzard?

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend "Chucky" and I have been together for a while, and things are starting to get serious. I'm 15, and he's almost 18. I'm falling in love with him, which has never happened with any other guy. I really think he's "The One. " Chucky proposed, but it isn't official yet. I still have no ring, but I'm thinking of accepting. Now he says he wants a baby. I'm too young to be having a baby, but he says he'll take care of me if it happens. I trust him, but I don't know what to believe.

We have all seen how a sudden rainstorm can dampen plans. But you can still make the best of a rainy situation - especially when it washes away the pretense of a new relationship. Twice rain has helped show me what was to become of early-stage relationships. My first experience with a dating downpour occurred in high school. At 17, I was a typical suave and sophisticated romancer. Any girl could see this, once she got past my erratic skin. But on one date, I wanted to lay on the charm, so I took this girl miniature-golfing.
