June's Movie Meeting
13 or more brave souls ventured to Ya-Ya land and had a great
time seeing the movie! Most started the evening with an Italian
dinner in the mall although Robin arrived after dinner, and Cindy's arrival
was one that will go down in our Club's history as the most unique!
Project Linus and Binky Patrol
Shirley sent in this info for the lady we met at Starbuck's while
we were crocheting. (Editor's Note: Not all of us!) She lives in our area
and is getting the Project Linus and Binky Patrol program going in Evergreen
. They make handmade blankets for kids who are sick, homeless, etc. She
has patterns, materials, etc. The next meeting at her house is July 22nd.
Her name is Terrie Madruga, phone 223-2064. Here is the web-site info:
Shirley's comments, "Looks interesting and the noncrocheters or knitters,
but pro-sewers could have fun with this one."
Evergreen Garden Club 2002
Are you a gardener?
Wannabe gardener? If so, you might be interested in
the new "Evergreen Garden Club." Las Madres members Ruth Eastman
and Marti Kranak are part of a small group that has recently formed
to promote home gardening in the Valley. No experience required;
in fact, you don't even need a yard...a pot will do.
If you're interested, check out the very rudimentary web site at:
Or, feel free
to call or email Ruth Eastman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We have field trips planned for July, August and September and home
meetings for the winter months.

AND A TIME WHEN...
Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-mo."
Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "Do over!"
"Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.
Catching the fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening.
It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.
The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties.
Having a weapon in school meant being caught with a slingshot.
A foot of snow was a dream come true.
Saturday morning cartoons weren't 30-minute ads for action figures.
"Oly-oly-oxen-free" made perfect sense.
Spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was cause for
The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team.
War was a card game.
Water balloons were the ultimate weapon.
Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle.
Taking drugs meant orange-flavored chewable aspirin. If you can remember most or all of these, then you have lived!!!!
