Dear Readers: Here’s yet another Sound Off about the phony calls people get.

“Dear Heloise: I read in your column recently about scammers, and I thought I’d add my two cents. It looks like every other telephone call I get is somebody trying to get me to send them money or attempting to tell me I won a cruise or a free this or that. They are all scam calls, so when I question them, they often hang up. I acquired one last week and told them I really do not make contributions to organizations I don’t know and definitely not until I investigate them. They search for people like me whom they believe are senile because we’re retired, or in our 70s and 80s. Just because a person is over age 65 will not mean they’re unable to detect a scam.

“Please keep all bank-account information secret, and don’t share information regarding credit cards with people soliciting donations. Alternatively, ask them to send you information regarding their organization. ”

Dear Readers: Here are some uses for the comics in the Sunday papers:

● Cover a vintage book.

● Use as wrapping paper.

● Utilize them to teach your son or daughter to read.

● It makes a good border for a bulletin board.

Dear Heloise: I don’t trust a recent reader’s letter about traveling without children and instead leaving them with grandparents. It’s nice to visit, but just take the kids with you. It’s educational for them, plus they enjoy time with their parents.

Too many customers rely on grand-parents for money, babysitting, help fixing things, and so on My generation managed on our own, with little or no help.

A Reader in Indiana: I could understand attempting to get away for a trip with just both parents no children, and I can also understand the desire to just take the youngsters along. How do you readers feel about this? Should kids be included on every trip? Tell us.

Dear Heloise: Regarding a recently available reader’s letter, the most tactful way to handle having no children at a wedding reception is that whenever your invitations are being printed, they should say at the bottom: “You are invited to an adults-only reception at… ”

Printers do that all the time.

Dear Heloise: When I put on or take off panty hose, I use plastic gloves. No nail snags.

Also, when I pull on or off a garment over my head, I cover my face with a shower cap. No makeup stains.
