Adult 20 Years Together Party - Fiesta Update
October Meeting Review
Although lots of people dropped off items and shoeboxes at Janis Gerlinger’s, only
six gals attended the meeting to sort, fill and wrap 22 boxes to be delivered to the
shelter. Janis was kind enough to offer to play courier. It was amazing how many
toiletries we collected, so many that in the end, we filled a shopping bag with what
was left to give to the shelter for individual giving. Janis supplied a great assortment
of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and we all sat on Janis’ new dining room chairs
( the Tahoe treasures)

Message from Mary
we had a very nice visit with Gary on Sunday. Like we told him,
always a pleasure to see old friends from Las Madres. We do miss you guys.
We hold many wonderful memories. :) By the way, Gary said that it would not
be a problem for you ladies to fly out and do a "girls weekend" out here with me
sometime. Ha Ha I told him it is his duty to go back and tell everyone that! Ha Ha
Sounds like everyone's family has grown up. We will have to make a point of getting
out there sometime. The unforunate part is that Ed and I have sooooo much that we
want to see and do now that we are basically kidless, there are not enough vacation
days for me in a year and of course there is that thing called a budget that always
seems to get in the way. Oh well------ we will get back out there.
Tell everyone "Hi" for us and as always we will be in touch. Mary Kay :)"
the Hospital the relatives gathered in the
waiting room, where their family member lay
gravely ill. Finally, the doctor came in
looking tired and somber.
afraid I'm the bearer of bad news," he
said as he surveyed the worried faces.
"The only hope left for your loved one
at this time is a brain transplant. It's an
experimental procedure, semi-risky and
you will have to pay for the brain yourselves."
family members sat silent as they
absorbed the news. After a great
length of time, someone asked, "Well, how
much does a brain cost?"
doctor quickly responded, "$5,000 for
a male brain, and $200 for a female brain."
moment turned awkward. Men in the
room tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact
with the women, but some actually smirked.
A man, unable to control his curiosity, blurted
out the question everyone wanted to ask,
"Why is the male brain so much more?"
doctor smiled at the childish innocence
and so to the entire group said, "It's just
standard pricing procedure. We have to mark
down the price of the female brains, because
they've been used."
