As if sock monkeys in a blender isn't bad enough, sock monkeys in a MEAT GRINDER? This is just wrong! [CoverArtist, Rebecca Yaker, MWP, July, 2011] Nancy Edwards, Minneapolis
I loved sock monkeys in the meat grinder when I saw them at the Fine Arts Building at the State Fair. They made me laugh out loud and wonder about the sassy lady who made them. What an unexpected pleasure to find out more about the artist in this issue of Women's Press. Robin VanOss, Minnetonka
I agree 100 percent! [YourStory, Carlye Proescholdt, MWP, July, 2011] I have been volunteering at the Animal Humane Society for two years and have found that my time spent each week with the dogs there renews me. The connection between animals and humans is profound and at times difficult to explain. There is joy in witnessing the animals given a second chance at happiness. Their spirits may have been wounded but they persevere and continue to love unconditionally-a life lesson I have learned from the dogs and taken to heart. Megan Helling, Lino Lakes, Minn.
Hunger for something else
Beautiful! May your peas be abundant, and may you share them, unwashed and by the handful, with your lucky daughter. [SheSaid column, Tami Mohamed Brown, MWP, July, 2011] Anne Carter, Minneapolis
I have been a sporadic reader of the Women's Press for many years. Picking it up at different outlets, but primarily at my library. I don't know what has happened in the last year or so but I think your paper is the best that it has ever been.
I like the size, I like the content and I have been reading it cover to cover. Keep up the good work. Thank you. Rosemary Fischer, Eagan, Minn.
