The June meeting is being planned by Robin. As
of now those plans are a secret. The activity will be revealed
in an e-mail subsequently.
Wednesday, June 26, location to be determined (volunteers?)
During our shopping escapades in Arroyo Grande
we discovered some very cute painted glass salt and pepper shakers.
The consensus of the group was that this would make a great craft
project so June is the month we will try this our hand at glass painting.
The s&p shakers have been found and ordered and research has
been done on the painting supplies needed. I will also have
a couple of tall, skinny bottles for those that want to make decorative
olive oil, vinegar or liquid soap containers. Now don't panic the designs
are simple and I know everyone can make squiggly lines and dots.
The cost of the s&p project will be around $4/pr (more for bottles)
depending on the number of signups. Please let me know which
item you want to paint and how many so I can shop accordingly>>>Vicki

3 people showed up at Janis' to 'get potted'. Janis had a
nice selection of snapdragons, marigolds, alyssum and lobelia to
choose from as well as attractive hanging pots. Randi loved this activity
as she walked away with a beautiful, finished pot in 15 min. They then
retired to the kitchen for wine and cookies and a discussion about
the October ladies trip. A heartfelt thanks to Janis for providing
us with creative projects year after year after year.......Vicki

SLO Trip Update
Eight of us braved a million antique and other stores for a weekend
the Embassy Suites were comfortable and the full breakfast and happy
hour was good (a little too good for a few people!) Anyways... everyone
drank a little, ate a lot, shopped and bought a bit and talked about all
of you not there! (just kidding!)
Here are a few highlights... see if you can guess the answers:
1. Who strips in their driveway?
2. What were Vicki, Cathy H, and Randi doing all in one bathroom
at Kelly's Restaurant in Paso Robles?
3. What was the drink of choice at Happy Hour?
4. We saw a "Nickel Climax" in an antique store... what was it?
5. Who was the super antique shopper that touches every item...
including all those wooden hangers she collects?
6. Who introduced us to a drink called the "Lemon Drop?"
7. Who learned to crochet and had to rip out her attempts (about
3 rows) many times?
8. Who lost her underwear while sleeping alone and found it on
(Answers can be found at the bottom of this newsletter.)
When God Created Fathers
When the good Lord was creating fathers, He started
with a tall frame. And a female angel nearby said, "What kind of
father is that? If you’re going to make children so close to the
ground, why have you put fathers up so high? He won’t be able to
shoot marbles without kneeling, tuck a child in bed without bending,
or even kiss a child without a lot of stooping."
And God smiled and said, "Yes, but if I make him
child size, who would children have to look up to?"
And when God made a father’s hands, they were large
And the angel shook her head sadly and said, "Do
You know what You’re doing? Large hands are clumsy. They can’t manage
diaper pins, small buttons, rubber bands on pony tails or even
remove splinters caused by baseball bats."
God smiled and said, "I know, but they’re large
enough to hold everything a small boy empties from his pockets at
the end of a day…yet small enough to cup a child’s face."
Then God molded long, slim legs and broad shoulders.
God smiled and said, "A mother needs a lap. A father
needs strong shoulders to pull a sled, balance a boy on a bicycle
or hold a sleepy head on the way home from the circus."
God was in the middle of creating two of the largest
feet anyone had ever seen when the angel could contain herself
no longer. "That’s not fair. Do You honestly think those large boats
are going to dig out of bed early in the morning when the baby
cries? Or walk through a small birthday party without crushing at
least three of the guests?"
And God smiled and said, "They’ll work. You’ll see.
They’ll support a small child who wants to "ride a horse to Banbury
Cross" or scare off mice at the summer cabin, or display shoes
that will be a challenge to fill."
God worked throughout the night, giving the father
few words, but a firm authoritative voice; eyes that see everything,
but remain calm and tolerant.
Finally, almost as an afterthought, He added tears.
Then He turned to the angel and said, "Now are you satisfied that
he can love as much as a mother?"
