Reader's Exchange: She'd like to secure an old, wooden boat to put flowers in

Spring is nearly here, and people are already getting out in their gardens! Marianne of Belleair Bluffs has a creative way she'd like to decorate her garden, by using a small, old wooden boat to plant flowers in. The trouble is, she doesn't have one, so she's hoping that someone out there does. She says the boat could be a pram or a small skiff, and it doesn't need to be in good condition. Marianne can be reached at (727) 504-7522.

Mary Johnson of St. Petersburg has six long-sleeved nightgowns for a bedridden/incapacitated patient to give away. Five of the nightgowns are flannel and one is cotton, all in various plaids. They are backless and were worn by a smaller man (size small-medium). Mary says there is no reason they could not be worn by a woman. She says they have a modesty panel in the back with full snap closures. If you are interested, Mary is willing to deliver them or mail them, if necessary. Call (727) 323-0069 and leave a message.

Sharon Taft of Port Richey is a big fan of Reader's Digest and is looking for the four-story books, not the magazines. She says she doesn't care how old they are, or if they are a little roughed up, as long as they are still readable. Sharon is willing to pick them up if she doesn't have to drive more than an hour. She can be reached between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. at (727) 857-4958.
