PHYLLIS MCDOUGAL, Oklahoma City

DEAR MELBA: Crescent Market used to have the best Meatloaf Mix on the planet. I believe it was a blend of beef, pork and veal. I've tried to reproduce it, but nothing comes out as tender and tasty. Please ask if someone can help me.

MRS. PAT GUINN, Oklahoma City

DEAR MELBA: Thank you so much for putting our request for Box Tops for Education for the Edmond Central Middle School in your column. We received many. I sent thank-you notes to all that had return addresses.

However, there were several with no return address. In the event you have enough space, please say “thanks” to those who did not receive a thank-you note from us.

CANDACE GIDEO, Edmond

DEAR MELBA: I love this quote: The past, the present and the future walked into a bar. It was tense.

KAYE MERRIAM, Oklahoma City

DEAR MELBA: Here's one of my favorite quotes: Sorrow looks back, fear looks around, faith looks up.

LORI CHRESTMAN, Wilburton

DEAR MELBA: I thought you might like to know what the Golden Years are. The Golden Years are when you're between the ages of 16 and 20. You know everything in the world, and somebody else is paying the bills.

PATSY OSTRANDER, Oklahoma City

DEAR MELBA: I enjoyed the “English made easy” list you published recently. Here's one more: Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.

LONGTIME READER

DEAR READERS: I must have been having trouble getting started last week when I gave you Caroline Medlinger's email address. The one I gave you was wrong. If you want to visit with her about her Amish Bread Starter, her real address is carolmeema1@att.net. Sorry.
