| June 2008


READY TO PLAY: The Hanky Panky's are, clockwise from back row, left: Sonny Bellcour, Carole Wrolstad, Pat Morrison, Charlie Melchior, Lynn Beeler, Maxine Hankins and Jack Danner.

Great response - CAPPER'S readers came through for me when I asked for homemade soap recipes in Reader to Reader. I received hundreds. Now I'll make soap, thanks to all your readers.

Editor's note: Thanks for writing, Jewell. Your letter shows that Reader to Reader requests can prompt a flood of help. Sometimes we receive letters from people whose requests have been answered, but who are unable to write to everyone who has sent replies. Unfortunately, we don't have space to print their notes of thanks.

If you respond to a request, but never hear from the request's author, please understand that readers can be overwhelmed by all the responses they receive, and that circumstances can arise that prevent their writing.

We're happy that Reader to Reader is so popular. Thank you all for making it such a wonderful resource.

Correction: In the May Open Session section, an incorrect phone number was given on page 8 for Lee Booksellers, publisher of the book Sod Walls. The correct number is 1 (888) 665-0999. We apologize for the error.
