DEAR SUN SPOTS: I want to thank the person who picked up the credit card I dropped in the Food City parking lot. They returned it to the service desk. If they hadn’t done that, I never would have known I had lost it. God bless the people who found it. I send many blessings for all involved!—No name, Jay

DEAR SUN SPOTS: For Wayne from Wayne, Maine, who was looking for a doughnut cutter, I have one for biscuit and doughnut cutting. I’d be more than happy to part with it as I don’t bake anymore. My number is 784-1817.

I’m a faithful Sun Spots reader and I thank you for your amazing column.—No name, no town

ANSWER: I just love my curious, helpful, caring Sun Spots readers! You are just the best! The request for a doughnut cutter from a reader in Wayne was published in the Jan. 30 Sun Spots and has gotten a lot of press time! Hey Wayne, I hope you got your hands on one and are busy making doughnuts!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Does anyone have the Filet Crochet leaflet with instructions to make a communion table runner that says, “Do this in remembrance of me”?

ANSWER: When I googled this information, several instruction booklets came up in the search on websites such as Amazon, Etsy, Pinterest, and Barnes & Noble for between $5-20. Of course, if a reader has these crochet instructions for this beautiful altar cloth and is willing to share them, all the better!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: You have helped me a few times in the past so now I would like to help your readers out. I’m downsizing and don’t need these books anymore. I’m hoping there’s a library, school or nonprofit that can use them.

Here are just a few of the hardcover books, but there are too many to mention: Rand McNally Volume 1-12 Atlas of Today; Collier’s Encyclopedia, years 1956-1978, Popular Mechanics – Home Handyman Vol. 1-16; New Junior Classic by Collier Book 1-10; A-Z Collier’s Encyclopedia Vol 1-20.

More miscellaneous examples are Sesame Street, Call of the Wild, and topics including sports, and American heritage and history.

If anyone is interested, please call me at 207-353-6384 and leave a message.

You are a joy to read and so full of information. Thank you for getting this message out there!—Alice, Bowdoin

ANSWER: Touch base with the local elementary schools and the Bowdoinham Public Library to see if they have any interest in some of your collection. Most libraries won’t want the encyclopedias for their collection, but sometimes they use these volumes for crafting and collaging.

Let us know if you find new homes for these materials, as the reader whose note is below did—and happy downsizing!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I am happy to report that I have found a wonderful home in Waterford for my encyclopedias.—Julie, Norway

ANSWER: That was quick! Julie offered her set of encyclopedias in the Feb. 14 Sun Spots. I love getting feedback from readers about their successful endings! Even after all these years, Sun Spots is thriving because of all you readers who keep it going. I so appreciate each and every one of you!
