    Pattern keeps flag flying: Several years ago, I wrote to CAPPER’S asking if anyone had a flag pattern that my mother, Grace Neer, made during World War I. (I tried to use hers as a pattern, but it was so worn I couldn’t.) I eventually received a pattern, and finally finished it. This is what it looks like. It is a crochet wall hanging, and it has more than a thousand yards of thread in it. – Lorene Boyer, Neodesha, Kan.

The hungry salesman – I want you to know how much I have enjoyed receiving CAPPER’S for more than 60 years. When a nice, young salesman came to my door in the 1940s, he accepted a fat roasting hen as payment for my first subscription. I’m certainly glad he was hungry for chicken that day.

Although I eventually had seven children, I always found time to read my CAPPER’S. I have especially enjoyed the fiction stories and the letters sent in by other readers.

I am amazed and thankful that even though I moved from Michigan to California to Iowa, CAPPER’S always managed to follow me. Thank you so much.

Radio days – I enjoyed the stories about old-time radios in the December 2008 Heart of the Home section. They brought back many memories.
