We agree with what Ger­ald Mullen wrote about Das Dutch Haus in the Au­gust/Septem­ber is­sue (“Down-Home Din­ing,” page 16). Of­ten, we drive from our home in Penn­syl­va­nia to Columbiana, Ohio, just to en­joy their break­fast buf­fet. In June 2018 we cel­e­brated our 60th wed­ding an­niver­sary with fam­ily and friends over break­fast at the restau­rant. We thought we’d share this pic­ture of us kiss­ing while the guests “cov­ered” their eyes. Ra­mona & Joseph Marks Slip­pery Rock, Penn­syl­va­nia

THANK YOU for the beau­ti­ful story about the Pe­tit Jean Moun­tain in Arkansas in the June/ July is­sue (“Pe­tit Jean State Park,” page 44). Our fam­ily came from Ada Val­ley at the foot of that moun­tain. I’ve al­ways won­dered if there was a cave be­hind the Cedar Falls. Has any­one ever checked? D. Sue Head For­gan, Ok­la­homa

ED­I­TOR’S NOTE: Ac­cord­ing to Joe Buck­ley, the park’s su­per­in­ten­dent, there is no cave be­hind the falls. But there are caves else­where in the park, in­clud­ing Rock House and Bear, that are worth ex­plor­ing.

I JUST FIN­ISHED READ­ING the Au­gust/Septem­ber is­sue, and I think I went through a box of tis­sues by the time I was done! The story “El­iz­a­beth

Has a Lit­tle Lamb,” (page 46) started the tears rolling. It was so well writ­ten. I felt like I knew El­iz­a­beth and my heart went out to her. I was so touched by the com­pas­sion and gen­eros­ity shown by John Ea­ton! God bless that coun­try gen­tle­man! So I was just get­ting my­self un­der con­trol when along came “Still the Same Papa” (page 62), and out came the tis­sues again. I was just a mess, but they were all happy, sappy tears. Gotta love Coun­try! Thank you! Elissa En­nis Winch­ester, On­tario

IN THE JUNE/JULY IS­SUE, I es­pe­cially en­joyed “Spring Breakup in Ke­nai” (page 66). It would be in­ter­est­ing to hear more about Dick Schuller and his fam­ily’s time in Alaska. Sandy Sa­muel­son Will­mar, Min­nesota

ED­I­TOR’S NOTE: Dick’s daugh­ter An­nette Lane up­dated us: “My par­ents home­steaded for sev­eral years. When I was go­ing into the fourth grade, we moved to Wyoming and had more ad­ven­tures. They sold the homestead many years later af­ter oil was dis­cov­ered in Alaska and there was such a frenzy for land up there.”
