25-Year Reunion Plans
The invites for the 25-Year Reunion are now online:


Summer Thursday Coffee Clatches Begin!
Meet your Las Madres friends for some coffee on Thursday mornings this summer. Shirley suggested we meet at the Starbuck's near Cosentino's around 9am EVERY Thursday morning (except for Pinecrest week)....sounds like a great plan!


Mediterranean Cruise Update
Five couples have put down their deposits so far for next summer's cruise. If you need another flyer, please let me know or call my mom (Betty) at 800-688-8500. I will be away from June 29th to July 10th and my mom will be on her Celebrity cruise to Europe from July 11-25th. She has a co-worker in her office who can take deposits while she is away or try to catch her before she goes. Remember, your deposit is fully refundable until May, so if you are even considering going, I would book a cabin so you can be near your friends and hold a space. You can always cancel if plans change. By the way, there are some singles and WWH (Wives without husbands) who have expressed an interest in going, let me know if you need a roomie and I will try to get you in contact with each other. It should be a fun trip and anyone is welcome to go!


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 our July "Away Coffee" on Saturday, July 16th, we will be going to Peet's Coffee in Lunardi's Market.  Hope you can come and join us!


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

A little old lady was running up and down the halls in a nursing home. As she walked, she would flip up the hem of her nightgown 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."


80-year old Bessie bursts into the rec room at the retirement home. She holds her clenched fist in the air and announces, "Anyone who can guess what's in my hand can have sex with me tonight!!"

An elderly gentleman in the rear shouts out, "An elephant?"

Bessie thinks a minute and says, "Close enough."


As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang.

Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, "Herman, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on Interstate 77. Please be careful!"

"Heck," said Herman, "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?"
