Open Session: What Readers Think

| August 2007

World War II songs - The World War II songs mentioned in CAPPER'S (Heart of the Home, June) brought back special memories, as my husband was in the Army. I enjoyed reminiscing, as several years ago I wrote a story using several popular songs titles. It began: 'We'll have a Sunrise Serenade, When the Lights Go On Again All Over the World. This brings The Very Thought of You, and I'm Making Believe, I'll Be Seeing You. Yes, I'll Buy That Dream, because You Belong to My Heart and I'll Get By, as long as I have you.'

Thanks, CAPPER'S, for the good reading. I wish it could come every day, 'cause sure as shootin', I would sit down and read it all.

The cotton's a-coming - I wish I could write to everyone who sent me cotton seed in response to my request (Reader to Reader, June). I've enjoyed the short letters each have written. I've got plants coming up. I don't have much room outside, as I live in an apartment, but I'm having fun watching them grow.

Favorite song - I read with interest about the D-Day anniversary (Open Session, July), as my first husband and I were married June 6, 1944. He died in 1979.

I was a subscriber to CAPPER'S for many years, but I quit a couple of years ago to cut expenses. I recently subscribed again, and I really enjoy it. I especially look forward to the serial story.

In the June Heart of the Home section, readers wrote about familiar songs. I remarried in 1990, and my favorite song, From a Jack to a King, was the theme song for our wedding dance. It is very special to me, as I am a widow again. He passed away in May 2002. I am over 85 years young.
