Sherry Barber of Whittier has always written her thank-you notes on yellow Thank-U-Grams and found them terrific for that purpose, but she can't find them anymore. Can you help Barber get some note-oriety, or will an ounce of sense tell her that there must be better way to tell write from wrong? For her husband, Toye Brill of Simi Valley is trying to locate knit jockey-style shorts in mid-thigh length , and she doesn't care if they are 100% cotton or blends.

Consider, for a moment, your quality of life. Has the zest drained away? Do you blank out in front of the closet each morning, wishing that there were something-- anything --that could bring back the passion you once knew? Do you shudder before racks of limp linen and wimpy wool? Of hopelessly mundane paisley and plaid? And, once you've finally dressed, just what is your impact on the world?

Question: I'm a size 4, and I'm OK on suits and dresses, but I can't find a raincoat I don't drown in. I've tried teen raincoats and boys' raincoats, but their styles are not sophisticated enough for my needs. (I'm 42 and work in Beverly Hills amid some of the best-dressed shop girls in the world.) Can you help?--M.D. Answer: Your limited selection is partly caused by the fact that Los Angeles stores simply do not stock as many raincoats as stores in cities with higher rain levels.

Dear Fashion Police: I am going on a five-week trip and want to pack light, so I'm looking for washable blouses and pants. I find polyester too hot so am thinking about wrinkle-resistant silk clothes, or maybe crinkly material (like seersucker) or prints. I've looked in travel catalogs and department stores, with little success. Any help would be appreciated. --ON THE ROAD AGAIN Dear On: We understand your aversion to polyester, but to which polyester are you referring?
