What readers think

| May 2009

A splendid read – My husband and I have enjoyed Starting Over by Bob Brown. This heartwarming fictional story made me laugh and cry at the same time. I’m saving it to read again and share with others. I’ve enjoyed other stories, but this is one of the best.

Editor’s note: We’re glad you enjoyed it, Barbara. You can find the conclusion on Page 42.

Cat chow – I’m owned by Mr. Grey, a cat with at­titude. He weighs 8 to 10 pounds, depending on how much of him he allows on a scale.

We live a distance from major shopping areas, so it’s cheapest and easiest to cook for him. I wonder if I add enough vitamins A, D and E to his meals, though. I add a few drops per amount cooked. I also add corn meal and sometimes rice. For protein, I use chicken, turkey, and puréed meat and vegetables.
