Dear Sun Spots: Super job on your column!

I have many more pink Lily of the Valley if anyone in the area should like some. Please call (207) 897-3032. They should be transplanted soon. Thank you. – Mary Moulton, Jay.

Dear Sun Spots: I’m hoping you can get me an address for Louie Anderson. I sent a letter to him and it came back. The address I have is 8033 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles. But it’s obviously the wrong one. I hope you can find the right one. Thank you so much. – Brenda Coffin, Mechanic Falls.

You can try contacting him through his Web site at or via e-mail at [email protected] Additionally, you can try writing him at 2756 North Green Valley Parkway #449, Las Vegas, NV 89014-2100; you can also write to him c/o “The Family Feud” NBC-TV Studios, 3000 West Alameda, Burbank, CA 91523.

Dear Sun Spots: Help!

I am writing to you to ask for help finding a special poem for a bride. This is given to a bride at her shower. It’s a box full of different items and a poem that tells what each item is for. I would like to do this for an upcoming bride in July. – Shelley Palmer, Bethel.

In addition to responses from readers, Sun Spots located this poem at It is used to accompany a gift basket for the bride, preferably including all the items mentioned (this gift and poem has brought many, many laughs and blushing brides!):

For The Bride to be.

Here are a few things that you might enjoy…

Just some things for you & your boy!

First off – a little negligee

for you to wear –

To be sexy and fun with your man if you dare!

There is also some chocolate syrup

for ultimate flavor –

Followed by whipped cream for you to savor.

Now you need some maraschino cherries –

To start brand new.

And finally – extra little nuts –

Even though, you now have two!!

According to, another shower theme is the wishing well shower where the hostess makes a cardboard replica of a well, and the gifts, wrapped and tied with ribbons, are tossed in. There are no cards attached, though sometimes the guests write a poem, and attach it to their gifts. The bride pulls out the gifts with the ribbons and reads the poems aloud.

The following poem, also located at is another possibility. It appears each of those invited to the shower are given a letter and they then just give a gift which starts with that letter. The following is the invitation sent to those attending the shower:

Cupid’s work is nearly done

Soon (bride’s name) and (groom’s name) will be ‘one.’

But as we wait for that special hour,

Let’s honor the Bride with an Alphabet Shower!

It’s really fun and easy, so don’t you fret.

Just give a gift that starts with the letter you get.

Then attach the letter for all to see

So the gifts can be opened alphabetically!

The information follows for this very special date.

We hope that you can come and help us celebrate!

(Please join us for an Alphabet Shower honoring. . . who,

date, time, place, hosted by, etc..)
