DEAR SUN SPOTS: I bet you are not able to count all the “thank you’s” you get. Everyone has surely been lucky to have Mr. and Mrs. Sun Spots available. Now I need you again. If you can, please ask the audience if anyone has found a set of keys possibly lost at a moving sale three to four weeks ago. There could be a chance they could be under a couch cushion or on the ground on a street off College Street that begins with “O” Way. Please call 946-5579. – No name, no town

ANSWER: I believe it’s Orestis Way where you may have misplaced your keys. If any of our readers had a yard sale at this location a few weeks ago or know of someone who did, hopefully the set of errant keys can be matched up with their rightful owner. Let us know what happens. And thank YOU for having confidence in Mrs. Sun Spots!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I am hoping that your readers can help me. On Monday, the 18th, I went to Rite Aid on Sabattus Street to buy some batteries for my hearing aid, which I had tucked away in my reading glass case when it stopped working. I was standing at the pharmacy counter looking at the batteries and needed my reading glasses to see the packaging, so I took out my glasses. When I got home I realized that the hearing aid was not in the eyeglass case anymore. A kind employee at Rite Aid looked for it, but did not find it. If anyone found the hearing aid in the store, can you please return it to Rite Aid on Sabattus Street? They have my contact information. I have my fingers crossed! Thank you! – Diane, Lewiston

ANSWER: What a smart lady you are to call out for assistance in Sun Spots. Our readers are incredibly thoughtful and helpful. I have a very good feeling that this important personal item will be found and returned to you. I’m sending positive thoughts your way and will love hearing from you when you and your hearing aid are reunited!
