Where: Janis' House
What: Watercolor Craft
April 18th is a NEW date for the meeting. As many of us will be stressing
over a suitcase, preparing for an early Friday departure for the cruise,
Janis has agreed to change the date. The meeting will be at Janis', however, Vicki
is going to teach us an "easy" watercolor technique. We will be making notecards
that will be very similar to the paint with water that our little ones used to enjoy in
the by-gone days. Vicki will provide the materials at a $2.00 cost. If you happen
to have a small watercolor paintbrush, please bring it along. These are available
at Michaels for those who would like to purchase one. The watercolor pencils
are also at Michaels if you just know you want your own set. They are about $4.
Call Vicki for details. Also, if you have any large rubber stamps that would work
on a 3X4 inch notecard, please bring them along. Janis will provide the drinks
and snacks. See you at 7:15 p.m.
Rosters have been printed and are being distributed. Check with Joan if you
don't receive yours soon.
Saturday Coffee Clatch
March Review.....by Joan
eight ball party was well attended as usual. It was nice to see the
join in for the first time. Merrilee was taught the fine art of playing 99 as a sideline
entertainment as she patiently waited to try her hand at shooting the balls. There
was lots of good food and fellowship and some hard fought games before a final
winning team emerged. Congratulations to Gary Nevoli and Joan Wilson. Let it
be known that a Wilson has been on the winning team for four years in a row....
but this time it was the female version. Guess all those late nights in the pool hall
finally paid off.
meeting was held at Milpitas AMC. We went to see "Hanging In" and
although there was some tears shed, I don't think it was a blockbuster movie.
Of course the company was grand and we had the theatre to ourselves for the
Ladies Weekend to Dorrington was wonderful. Eight of us stayed in a
family cabin just north of Angel's Camp. We had beautiful weather, some
shopping but for the most part we stayed together at the cabin and bonded.
We did play a long round of Mexican Train and then another time we bent our
brains over the Baby Boomer Edition of Trivial Pursuit questions; a dollar find in
the local thrift store. We learned alot and laughed alot and shared alot of quality
time. It was nice to have Marti join us. Vicki and Marti are the mega clothes
shoppers and the hot buy of the weekend had to be scarves and the
unmentionable find for Trevor. (Editor's Note: Who remembers what Joan plans
to do with it?) Marti picked up a bunch of classic old time hats for her theatrical
collection. In Sonora we found a wonderful tea room for lunch. It is called
Babcia's (Polish for grandma). They served a great quiche and salad, many
varieties of tea and scrumptious desserts. We sampled them all including the
complimentary chocolate cake. Can you believe we all ordered something
different and no one chose the chocolate cake. Diane, the proprietor, brought us
a piece so we could sample her entire selection. Kudos to Ginny for daring the
commuter traffic Friday night and super kudos to Shirley for navigating the roads
on a four hour detour through the back country after the main highway home was
closed down due to a gas spill. What a memorable weekend it was. Thank you
Las Madres for bringing together such wonderful women to share these special
News from Alene
Congratulations to Michael D'Agosta on his graduation from Cal Poly SLO.

week-end was great- thanks to all of you for making it so much fun.
It is amazing we are still chugging along after 20 years. I got used to
having you around, and now I miss all of you. Shirley
loved spending the weekend laughing; so glad to have all of you as
friends. Marti...please come more often; I loved having you along.
Except for the Looooooong ride home, what a great weekend! Love you
my dear friends,
I sure enjoyed myself! I only wish I had decided to buy the dress, the
wine, and the olive oil seasonings! I can never make up my mind fast
enough!! I'm always afraid something better is going to come along &
I've spent my quota. We'll definitely have to try & find similar
accomodations in other places.
Thanks for a great weekend. I really need to go away with all of you more
often. I miss your companionship and fun times. Next time you are going away,
make me go!!! Only problem is, I am seeing spots on little square tiles in my
Love you all............mj
