Watchful dog - What memories of childhood CAPPER'S brings! A reader made a passing reference to the Jewel Tea Company in a letter to Reader to Reader recently. I remember being on the farm and seeing the Jewel Tea truck drive in. Once, a Jewel Tea man drove in and my mother didn't make it to the door fast enough to holler at our dog, Mickey, who was a little sharp with strangers. As the man got out of the truck, the dog greeted him with a nip that took his pant leg off. My mother gave the man a pair of Dad's pants until he could reach town (about four miles away) to get another pair.

Tree climbing? - Recently, my 7-year-old grandson, Austin, came running into my house, exclaiming, 'Grandma, will you come and climb trees with me?'
I'm 69 years old. He made my day.

Put it in stitches - Getting only one CAPPER'S a month makes for a big issue. We were having trouble keeping ours together. When the first monthly issue arrived, I went to the sewing machine and sewed it down the middle. That worked wonderfully.
