April Meeting
When: April 17 , 7:15 pm
Where: Marti's House
What: Garden Ornament Making

In Aptos a plan was "hatched" for this month's meeting at Marti's. We will be making what we were going to do at craft night last month (the copper wire and beads, glass, etc) or if you don't want to do that you can drink strawberry daiquiri's and watch the sunset. So.....Cathy has the copper wire. Everyone can bring glass balls or beads or shells or any little items they think they would like to make a plant bobble, or window ornament or.... We saw some serving items in Aptos so bring an old spoon or fork you might want to decorate.

Adult 8-Ball
A good time was enjoyed by all. Marian Caso and Walt Wilson were the "Masters of the Game". Second place went to the Wild Women team of Vicki Rasmussen and Tina Cuneo.

Ladies Beach Weekend
The beach house is available for the weekend of April 4-5. We made an executive decision at Sally's to go for it. It sleeps 10 comfortably, is on the beach, has a hot tub, is nice. It is $75 per person and the first 10 to get checks to Vicky are guaranteed bed space. Some of the beds have to be shared. There will be no refunds. You need to bring your own sheets and towels. Bring an extra towel (and bathing suit!) if you plan to use the hot tub. It is in Aptos down the beach from Seascape.

Southern Living at Home Party
Many of us were looking at a catalog for "Southern Living at Home"during a couple of Saturday coffees. Randi will host a party for Las Madresand friends on Tuesday, April 29th at 7pm at 5006 Wellington Park Dr. This company has a lot of cute things for the home and the prices seem reasonable. RSVP to Randi so she can get an idea of how many are coming either by
phone or e-mail Refreshmesnts and goodies will be served!

Get Well Wishes
Wishing Greg Wilson a speedy recovery from his recent accident.

Los Padres Golf News
Lou made golf dates at Forest Meadows. He reserved 2 houses for the week-end of June 6, 7 and 8, 2003. He already has some tee times for Forest Meadows, and the others have to be made closer to the date. Please call or e-mail Lou if you are interested in going.

Saturday Coffee Clatches Continue
Meet your Las Madres friends for some coffee and conversation at the Starbuck's at White and Aborn on Saturday mornings at 9am. Every third Saturday is a field trip. For the month of April we are going to the Los Gatos Roasting Company at 101 West Main Street Los Gatos. Then we can walk around the town and shop.


A little military humor in honor of Jacob and every mother's child serving in the current conflict....

Department of Defense Super Computer 
A large defense contractor finally succeeded in building a computer able to solve any strategic or tactical problem. Military leaders assembled in front of the new machine and were instructed to feed a difficult tactical problem into it. They described a hypothetical situation to the computer and then asked the pivotal question, "Attack or retreat?"

The computer hummed away for an hour and then came up with the answer, "Yes."

The generals looked at each other, stupefied.

Finally one of them submitted a second request to the computer, "Yes what?"

Instantly the computer responded, "Yes, Sir!."
