to two wonderful dinners.....lasagna on Friday night and BBQ Tri Tip on

Del Valle -
At the planning meeting we
discussed camping at Del Valle in the Livermore Valley over Mother’s
May 9-11th. Reservations for camping can be made at ReserveAmerica.com. This is open to any and all- Las
Madres and friends of
LM. Wilson’s are in site 38. For
you non-camper folks, we thought maybe you would like to spend the day
Saturday with us campers and have a big potluck BBQ Saturday around
5pm. The guys can cook….Shirley has got Lou cooking pancakes HA HA but
we may get him to do pancake breakfast on Sunday if that is his
speciality. Let Joan know if you are
camping and if you are interested in the BBQ. If we don’t get many
BBQers it is subject to cancellation. This
is a good place for bikes….lots of flat paths and lots of BIG hills for
the more adventuresome. Bocce Ball on the lawn is also fun. Horseshoe
pits are there also.
Los Padres Golf The
dates are May 30th to June 1st at Forest Meadows. non-golfers are
welcome to go for the good times and companionship. For more info
and to RSVP, contact Lou.
have plenty of spots and most of us will probably go from July 25th
on. The sites are available starting different days, depending on
what we could get.
We've moved our "regular" place to
Le Boulanger at San Felipe and Yerba Buena. There is a Starbuck
across from it if you need something "special" to go with your bagel or
pastry. Our field trip this month is to Robin's garden on May 17 at 9
am. Bring you own coffee or tea cup and we can enjoy the nice weather
in her beautiful garden.
THOUGHTS ON MOTHERHOOD
said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you've had a
baby... that somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother, "normal"
Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct... that somebody
never took a three-year-old shopping.
Somebody said being a mother is boring... that somebody never rode in a
car driven by a teenager with a driver's permit.
Somebody said if you're a "good" mother, your child will "turn out
good"... that somebody thinks a child comes with directions and a
Somebody said "good" mothers never raise their voices... that somebody
never came out the back door just in time to see her child hit a golf
ball through the neighbor's kitchen window.
Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother... that
somebody never helped a fourth grader with his math.
Somebody said you can't love the fifth child as much as you love the
first... that somebody doesn't have five children.
Somebody said a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing
questions in the books... that somebody never had a child stuff beans
up his nose or in his ears.
Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and
delivery... that somebody never watched her "baby" get on the bus for
the first day of kindergarten... or on a plane headed for military
Somebody said a mother can do her job with her eyes closed and one hand
tied behind her back... that somebody never organized seven giggling
Brownies to sell cookies.
Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets
married... that somebody doesn't know that marriage adds a new son or
daughter-in-law to a mother's heartstrings.
Somebody said a mother's job is done when her last child leaves home...
that somebody never had grandchildren.
Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don't need to tell
her... that somebody isn't a mother.
MOTHER'S DAY... to every Mother on every day of the year!
