August Meeting
BBB meeting!  Books, Booze and Buffet...  We will be having our annual Salad Buffet at Randi's house on Thursday, August 20th at 7pm.  Send  Randi ( what kind of salad you would like to bring.  An update will be sent out periodically so we don't have repeats.  We will also have some kind of "Booze," to be determined later since Randi is experimenting.  Then, everyone bring a favorite book(s) or author(s) to share with the group. This can be from the present or past.  We all seem to read the same authors and it would be nice to get some new suggestions.  Notes will be taken of what we shared to be published in the next newsletter.  Hope to see you there!!  RSVP: Randi

Saturday Coffee Clatches Continue
We meet every Saturday morning at 9 am at Le Boulanger at San Felipe and Yerba Buena.  There is a Starbucks across from it if you need something "special" to go with your bagel or pastry.  Our field trip this month will be August 15th to Orchard Valley Coffee in Campbell (349 E. Campbell Avenue).  Afterwards we can walk the town, and check out the new organic yard shop across the street.

e-Mail Tidbit


An elderly Floridian called 911 on her cell phone to report that her car has been broken into.
She is hysterical as she explains her situation to the dispatcher: 
" They've stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator!" she cried.

The dispatcher said, "Stay calm.  An officer is on the way."
A few minutes later, the officer radios in. "Disregard," he says.
"She got in the back-seat by mistake."


Three sisters, ages 92, 94 and 96, live in a house together. 
One night the 96-year old draws a bath. 
She puts her foot in and pauses.
She yells to the other sisters,
"Was I getting in or out of the bath?"

The 94-year-old yells back, "I don't know. I'll come up and see." 
She starts up the stairs and pauses, "Was I going up the stairs or down?"

The 92-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters. 
She shakes her head and says, "I sure hope I never get that forgetful, knock on wood." 
She then yells, "I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door."


Three retirees, each with a hearing loss, were playing golf one fine March day. 
One remarked to the other, "Windy, isn't it?"

"No," the second man replied, "it'sThursday."

And the third man chimed in, "So am I. Let's have a beer ...."


A little old lady was going up and down the halls in a nursing home. 
As she walked, she would flip up the hem of her night-gown and say "Supersex." 
She walked up to an elderly man in a wheelchair. 
Flipping her gown at him, she said, "Supersex."

He sat silently for a moment or two and finally answered, "I'll take the soup."


Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. 
Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures.
Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.
One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said,
"Now don't get mad at me. I know we've been friends for a long time, but I just can't think of your name!
I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it.
Please tell me what your name is."

Her friend glared at her.
For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her.
Finally she said, "How soon do you need to know?"


As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang.
Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him,
"Ernie, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on Interstate 7.
Please be careful!"

"Heck," said Ernie, "It's not just one car.  It's hundreds of them!"


Two elderly women were out driving in a large car - both could barely see over the dashboard.
As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection.
The stoplight was red, but they just went on through.

The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself,
"I must be losing it. I could have sworn we just went through a red light."

After a few more minutes, they came to another intersection and the light was red again.
Again, they went right through.

The woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red
but was really concerned that she was losing it.
She was getting nervous.

At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was red and they went on through.

So, she turned to the other woman and said,
"Mildred,did you know that we just ran through three red lights in a row?
You could have killed us both!"

Mildred turned to her and said, "Oh, crap, am I driving?"
