Mailbag - September 2022
Dream come true
I have received nothing but positive feedback about being featured in this month’s issue [The Garden Code: Gifts grown in Grandpa’s garden by Michelle Casas Groogan, Aug. 2022]. Being on the cover of a magazine [The West University Buzz] has always been one of my goals. I am so grateful to the wonderful people at The Buzz who have made this dream come true. Thank you for sharing my story.
As for Ivy [the app Jones created], it releases August 13, 2022 – the day after my 18th birthday.
Editor’s note: Jones, congratulations on your app and we appreciate you sharing your story with us! Search the Apple store to check out Ivy.
Kudos on July issue
I wanted to let you know I loved the July 2022 issue. It was absolutely marvelous. One of the best issues. I know people take the time to make complaints about things, but I think you ought to hear kudos. I loved the issue. It was gorgeous. The photography contest – I really enjoyed it. I believe in acknowledging. People will tell you what they think is wrong but not what’s right.
Editor’s note: Carmelita, we appreciate you reaching out and sharing positive feedback. We’re glad you liked seeing the winners of our 2022 Photo Contest. View all of these photographs here.
Past story hits home today
Cindy – we don’t know each other, and I don’t make it a habit of messaging random strangers on social media, but I just ran across your “When I’m 64” article in The Buzz [When I’m 64: Comfortable in my own skin by Cindy Gabriel, Nov. 2018] and it hit me right on the gut. I am reaching the end of my 64th year and celebrating that Medicare birthday next month. I am also retiring from a job and career I love. So lots of changes. Your article is exactly what I needed today. I know you wrote it three years ago, but I just wanted to let you know it still hits the mark. Thank you!
Editor’s note: Dubravka, we’re glad you stumbled upon this story and that it made an impression on you.
Hi Andria – your Just Peachy recipes in the July 2022 food section [by Andria Frankfort] look delicious! I tried the Apricot Raspberry Crumble [submitted by Nancy Beck] with peaches and blueberries and a bit less of the flour than called for in the recipe, and it was good. However, I want to try it again with much less flour in the fruit mixture. Thanks for your Food section. I always enjoy the recipes and photos. Keep up the good work.
Celebrating a centenarian
Thank you for the wonderful article about my dad, Damon Slator, and his 100th birthday celebration [Happy 100th birthday!, Buzz About Town by Angie Frederickson, West University Buzz and Tanglewood/River Oaks Buzz, May 2022]! The memories last, and your article stirred them up again, which I treasure! And since I live in Austin, it has been fantastic hearing from the friends I grew up with in Tanglewood who now know about his big milestone! A heartfelt thanks to you and The Buzz team!
