PLANT FOUR ROWS

Plant four rows of squash:

Squash gossip,

Squash indifference,

Squash criticism,

Squash negative thinking.

Plant four rows of turnips:

Turn up for church,

Turn up whenever needed,

Turn up with a friendly smile,

Turn up with determination to be a better person.

Plant four rows of lettuce:

Let us soar to new heights,

Let us come together in harmony,

Let us share God's love, and

Let us practice forgiveness.

This will produce a good harvest!

CAROL JACKSON, N.C.

DEAR MELBA: I recently saw in The Oklahoman that the company that makes Ball jars will be coming out with a blue jam commemorating the 100th anniversary of the company. Do you know where in Oklahoma City we might find this product? I know it could be ordered from the company, but I would like to find it here.
