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.”
