Dear Jenny,

I love Christmas. It's a season of giving and getting beautiful cards. This card was made by my daughter Julie. Do you like it?

This winter we have a lot of snow here, but a friend called yesterday and said that you are still wearing T-shirts down there.

How will you celebrate Christmas? Are you going to visit Amy this year? If so, please say hello to her for me and tell her that I miss her wonderful cakes!

Love,

Wendy

Dear Sir,

I ordered a shirt from you last month. But there are some problems with it. First, the color is not as red as it is shown in the catalogue. I understand that the picture does not always show the real color, but it should not be that different. Second, I asked for a medium size because it is the size I usually wear. But your medium is so small that I have to give it to my younger brother.

I think you should be more serious about your business.

Truly,

Adam Rosen

Dear Mr. Rosen,

Thank you for telling us the problems with your order. We hope we can give you better service. We are sending you another shirt with this letter. It is size large, and its red color is brighter than the one you had. We hope you like it.

Our office hours are 9:00 a.m. ~ 5:00 p.m. Please call us if you have any more questions.

Susan was a woman who hated animals. She never wanted to keep any pets at home. To her, all animals were dirty and boring. Susan could never understand why people would like to have cats or dogs in the house. It was so stupid!

Last month Susan's daughter, Penny, came home from school with a mouse in a box. Susan was very angry. But Penny said that it was her homework. Her teacher asked each student to take care of an animal and learn to get along with it. Susan had to say yes.

It was fun for Penny at the beginning, but then she got lazy and forgot to do her homework. It became Susan's homework. She gave it food and water every day and found that the mouse was in fact not dirty. She even talked to it! It was not boring or stupid! Now Susan is having a good time withhermouse. She named it Nini. And she is going to buy another one to make a pair.

I was jogging with my dog this morning when I saw John Archer at a street corner. He was sitting on a bike with one of his feet on the ground. "He's waiting for someone," I thought. John and I were both in the ninth grade. He was a basketball player on our school team and was very popular with many girls. But I never talked to him before. He was not my type.

John saw me, too. He smiled. For a moment I thought he was smiling at someone else. But he was not. "Hi, Mary Jones," he said to me. "You have a cute little dog." I smiled but did not say anything, because I did not know what to say. "I'm here waiting for you. Would you...would you like to go to the movies with me?" he asked. I was very surprised. I never thought he would do this, and I never thought about going out with him.

I said "no," of course. But he seemed nice and friendly. Maybe I would go to watch him play basketball some day.

Remember Tony and Peter, the twin brothers who started singing at the age of five? The little boys are now twenty-five years old and will come back home for the first time since they left ten years ago. They will be singing to celebrate the 100th birthday of our beautiful town.

Tony and Peter are famous for their wonderful voices. They are popular with both young and old people. Three years ago the brothers organized the Garbage Can with their three cousins. The five of them started to write their own songs and have become successful. In the coming concert in Greentown, the Garbage Can is going to sing their best-loved songs and several new ones.

The concert will be at Apple Park at 7 p.m. on October 10. Fans who do not want to miss it should get to the park as early as possible.
