Our Annual Planning & White Elephant Meeting
When: Thursday, January 21, 7:15pm

Where: Marilyn's House
What: Planning Meeting & White Elephant Gift Exchange

Marilyn has generously volunteered to host our annual January Planning Meeting & White Elephant Gift Exchange.  Bring a snack to share, your calendar, a white elephant wrapped gift to exchange, and your ideas for things to do in 2016.  RSVP Marilyn so she knows how many to expect.  (Editor's Note:  When I receive more info, I'll update and send an email.)

Info from our New President.....Robin

Our December "Christmas Party" meeting was once again held at Merrilee's.  She did a great job.  Her house is fabulous, the Xmas tree was beautiful.  She always does a great job in hosting an event.  The gift exchange was again fun with stealing of gifts and it seems we always have one person who opens many gifts. That one person this year was Betty.  The highlight of gifts was the Xmas quilt made by Tina and taken home by Ginny.  Other gifts were the wooden bowl, silver tray and many others.  We need suggestions for next years Xmas party.  A few that I have heard are:  Something "Black and White", something that can fit into a Xmas stocking".  We are always open for suggestions.  A good time was had by all.  Merry Xmas and Happy New Year.  Our Las Madres family is so much fun.

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.

January away coffee will be the last Saturday of the month instead of the 4th, so as not to be on same week as the planning meeting. Heading across town to Dolce Bella Chocolates & Cafe (5325 Prospect Rd).  They serve breakfast scrambles, breakfast paninis, quiches, etc. but have no online breakfast menu at this time.

"Dolce Bella Chocolate Cafe is a comfortable place where you can satisfy your chocolate cravings, sip from a glass of wine or cup of coffee. Relax with friends, and watch chocolates being created in the open kitchen. Try one of our house made ice creams or dip into a chocolate fondue, experience a seasonal pastry such as our hot apple pie a la mode."

Funny Emails For Old Friends:

Now this one is just too Precious.. LOL!

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?
