Dear Abby: The issue of thank-you notes comes up often in your column. May I share how I learned to write them? When I was young, my mother asked me one day why I was so resistant. I said I hated addressing them and I never knew what to say! It was overwhelming to me.

Dear Abby: Daughter resents parents who skipped graduation

Dear Abby: When I was a child, my parents skipped my elementary school graduation. For that matter, everyone did. My grandfather had just died, so Mom was mourning his loss. Fast-forward a few years — nobody attended my junior high graduation, either. Granted, Mom had a couple of stitches in her nose because my brother had accidentally hit her with a golf club the week before.

Reader scrapbook

Cooper, a nine-year-old old Golden Retriever, loves summertime because he gets to play in the sprinkler ... all ... day ... long. His owners, Terry Clark and Donna Becker of Wenatchee, say that first thing in the morning Cooper will whine at the back door and stomp his feet until someone turns the sprinkler on for him. It’s hard for him to understand that on rainy days his sprinkler friend can’t come out and play. Donna said it’s a good thing she can distract him with a cookie.
