Cathy Hennig has been researching for our trip in May. She originally
wanted to go to Apple Farm since she missed it the first time. The
large rooms we stayed in before are not both available for the weekend
we have set aside. The regular Apple Farm rooms, which are really lovely,
run $229 for 2 queens. After taxes this will run about $65 each night
per person. This does include a lite breakfast and wine and snacks in
the afternoon. Are you interested in making this trip at the cost above?
Please email Vicki and letyour thoughts be known ASAP.
Janis has arranged
an adult evening of Bocce Ball on Saturday, April 27. We can catch
dinner before the "competition" and then start playing at 8:30.
Cost is $10 per person for 1 and 1/2 hours of fun! Please
RSVP to Janis ASAP as she has to make the final reservations!
50 IS NIFTY
Remember to mark your calendar for our "50 IS
NIFTY" party on Saturday, July 6. This will be a couples
party, outside on the Castagnoli's patio, to celebrate the fact that
(almost) ALL of us have turned, or will soon be turning 50. Start
looking for a crazy hat or t-shirt to wear!
When I was in my younger days,
I weighed a few pounds less,
I needn't hold my tummy in
to wear a belted dress.
But now that I am older,
I've set my body free;
There's comfort of elastic
Where once my waist would be.
Inventor of those high-heeled shoes
My feet have not forgiven;
I have to wear a nine now,
But used to wear a seven.
And how about those pantyhose--
They're sized by weight, you see,
So how come when I put them on
The crotch is at my knee?
I need to wear these glasses
As the prints been getting smaller;
And it wasn't very long ago
I know that I was taller.
Though my hair has turned to gray
and my skin no longer fits,
On the inside, I'm the same old me,
It's the outside's changed a bit.
But, on a positive note...
I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today,
life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.
I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person
by the way he/she handles these three things:
a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents,
you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.
I've learned that making a "living"
is not the same thing as making a
I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt
on both hands.
You need to be able to throw something back.
I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart,
I usually make the right decision.
I've learned that even when I have pains,
I don't have to be one.
I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.
People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.
I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.
I've learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
...but people will never forget how you made them feel.
