Reader's Exchange: Stocking and Christmas tree skirt patterns on their holiday wish list

Let your fingers do the walking with a typewriter. Bill Carlson has one up for grabs. It's a Smith Corona Electra 220. If you're interested, please call him at (727) 410-4105.

This may be music to somebody's ears. Bernice Halfon has cassette tapes with various types of music. Call her at (727) 542-7350 and leave a message.

Patricia O'Neal of North Redington Beach wrote in to thank Frankie in Belleair Bluffs for the lovely table she received after putting her request in REX. And that's not all. Patricia has a small, pink pet carrier in great condition to give away, and she wonders if someone out there might have a pet carrier for a 16 1/2-pound cat. You can reach Patricia at (727) 391-0606.

If you'd like to tickle the ivories, so to speak, you'll be tickled by this offer. Bob DiLonardo, who lives in the Feather Sound area of Clearwater, has an upright piano and bench he would like to give away. The sound/tuning is very good, he says. While the piano shows some wear, Bob says it would be ideal for a school, recreation/senior center or a beginning music student. If you're interested, you'll need to arrange for piano pickup. Bob can be reached at (727) 709-6961 during business hours.
