School is back in session and football season has begun, so fall must be on the horizon even though temperatures don't always feel fall-like. But I am not complaining about the summer we had this year.

Treasure Hunt

DEAR HELAINE AND JOE: In 1972, I went on a trip to Natchitoches and Melrose Plantation in Louisiana. At the plantation, we bought two paintings from an elderly woman. I asked her if she had any more, and she replied, "only one, that's not dry." I bought it, and later found out I had bought it from Clementene Hunter. Aside from being wet when I bought it, it appears to be unfinished. Can you tell me who she was and about my painting?

Q Could you please tell us where we could find French sorrel? We use it in scrambled eggs, omelets and soup. I would also like to purchase watercress for a dish of steak, french fries and watercress -- the combination is delicious and very healthy.

Otus the Head Cat: Americans didn't gopher 'other, other white meat'

Dear Otus, I was driving past Bella Vista Monday when I saw an old sign that said something about a gopher farm. I remember reading about this some time ago. Is that fellow still in business up there?

DEAR CAR TALK: I own a 2002 Chevy Suburban with 178,000 miles. I bought it from my brother-in-law for $3,000 for my son to drive while in college. It has died several times on the highway, causing him to pull over quickly to get out of the way of traffic. Before it dies, he feels a jerkiness or a rumbling. The car then loses acceleration, and pushing on the gas pedal gets no response. He can then coast to a stop or push the brake pedal to stop on the shoulder. It usually will restart in a minute or two, and runs normally thereafter. Occasionally, it has died several times within an hour while driving on the highway. Recently, the Suburban died on the highway on our way to visit family for a holiday. After restarting, it ran for over an hour, getting us to our destination without an issue. The dealership can't seem to find anything wrong with it. However, they say the fuel pump is on the low end, but they tell me it appears to be within the range required for the vehicle. What should I have the dealership replace or check?

Design a bedroom with child in mind

Parents, do you want your children's bedrooms to be relaxing oases where they can decompress and escape the academic and social pressures of school? Don't assume that means muted colors and quiet sanctuary.

Interior trimmings in bold colors a break from all white

Ask most designers what color they usually paint interior trim -- no matter the wall color -- and they will tell you the same: white.

Horoscopes by Holiday

Happy birthday. A lifestyle that allows you to do what you enjoy when you want it will allow for all kinds of good fortune. That's why it'll be wise for you to make flexibility a vital factor in any life decision. People much younger or older than you add fun, love and unexpected opportunities.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: Maybe it was the way I was raised, but I've always been a very fearful person. I admit that most of the things I worry about don't ever happen, but I still worry about them. Will I always be like this?
