Niles Canyon Railway
One hour 10 minute ride starts and
ends at Sunol Depot. We will meet there on Sunday, May 20, and
have an early lunch at 11:30 at the private park across the street from
the station. There are no restrooms on the train caboose.
We can have dessert and drinks on the train. The train leaves
promptly at 1:30.
Directions: from I-680 Pleasanton. Exit
onto Hwy 84 West. Go west one mile to Sunol. Right turn onto Main
Street. Continue on Main St. past Kilkare Rd. Sunol Depot is on
Address is 6 Kilkare Road Sunol, CA
Cost is $10.00 per person (paid after the
ride.) Also we will be splitting the charge of $75.00 among all
those that attend.
Bring a dessert to share, and the drinks you want on
the train. Bring your lunch and meet us there at 11:30. The
maximum is 20 adults, so invite others.
Those that RSVP’d so far: (sorry if I missed
including you, I should have made a list last night at bunko!)
Butlers, Nevolis, Pearsons, Gomezes, Roesslers, Wilsons, and
Cuneos. That makes 14. If we split the $75 makes it kind of
costly (it would make it around $5.50 more per person.) I would
have to cancel 2 weeks prior to get the $75.00 deposit back. Let
me know what you want to do.
Hope we get enough people; I’m really looking
forward to it. Sue

Cindy needs to know how many people are interested in going to the Menopause The Musical at Pier
39 in October to determine if we can get the group rate. She can
only order tickets 6 weeks in advance. Contact Cindy by May 15 and let her know
if you are interested in going.
The Wilson's are movin’ on
up...or is it down or is it across?
The Wilson ’s have three major bits of news to share
with our Las Madres family. Walt and Joan finally found their
waterfront property after a long two plus years of searching. We have
closed on land in a subdivision in Branson West, MO. Now we get to
dream and draw up plans to build that retirement home with the sounds
of the water and beautiful trees to support my hammock. We will be
about seven hours from Greg and family and four hours from Walt’s
And for those who may not know, Greg and De
purchased and closed on a new home in Ardmore, OK. They have almost
doubled their living space and still have a huge yard with four mature
pecan trees. Greg is managing a restaurant call El Chico that is
similar to our Chili/Chevy’s but the volume is fourth in the nation
with over 100 restaurant and 30 franchise restaurants. He is quite
settled in married life with a wife and two young daughters aged 9 and
7 years. Remember those days?
And finally, Trevor has just decided to take a job
with an advertising agency in downtown Los Angeles. He will continue to
represent the entertainment field and will have Great America as one of
his accounts. This is a great career move for him, as he seems to love
the entertainment field and that means LA or NY. The agency represents
Toyota and McDonalds as well as several other big names so there is
plenty of learning and potential for growth. Walt and I are very proud
of him and yet sad to see him move out of the area. He will start his
new job mid May.
The Ladies Spring Fling is to Harbour House in Bodega Bay for 3 nights,
May 31st - June 3rd. Check it out at: http://www.harbourhouse.info.

the bus and the ticket in. The bus leaves the Brit at 11:00 a.m.

Bottle Your Own @ Guglielmo Winery Saturday May 19, 2007, 10-3
The Butler ’s will be there at 11:30. Free wine tasting and

Stomp. 2:30-9:30 p.m.

discussion, it was decided to try something different
for coffee this year. We will be picking a new place to visit each
month. We will go to that location for the entire month, unless we
decide to have an "away" coffee :-) For the month of May, we
will be going to the Panera Bakery at Coleman & Taylor. On May 26,
the last Saturday of the month, we will be having a field trip back to
Java Junction so that we can visit the 3rd Annual Evergreen Fine Arts
& Crafts Festival in the park.
