It's that time of year to battle it out on the table! No skills needed, just a good sense of humor and a willingness to suffer to agony of defeat. Please RSVP to Ginny and she would appreciate the loan of a card table and some chairs.

Notes from the Prez

Please invite all past members, and their adult kids.  Maybe we can consider a formal invite with details.  The moms are going to lunch and then later that evening with the rest of the family for a reunion gathering.
"A Mark Hopkins Family Mansion" decorators' show house in Atherton.  Dates April 2-April24.  10:00 to 3:00 group rates 15 or more.  Otherwise the cost is $20.00 advance ticket, or $25.00 at the door.  Contact Sue Butler if you are interested and we can try to coordinate car pools and lunch.

Summer '06 Mediterranean Cruise
I am still waiting for our group price package to be put together by the cruise lines.... they say the prices won't be announced still for another month or so.  As soon as I know anything, I will let everyone know.  Randi  :-)

Los Padres Golf
Lou has procured a house at Forest Meadows for the weekend of June 3-5th. It is not the Aacker house, as they wanted to wait until almost that date to confirm. It looks nice and roomy-near the 7th green. Also has some tee times for Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. Contact 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. We are going to meet at the Starbuck's near Cosentino's at the creek. Hope to see you there!

Need a good laugh . . .

Have you ever spoken and wished that you could immediately take the words back...or that you could crawl into a hole? Here are the testimonials of a few people who did....

1. I walked into a hair salon with my husband and three kids in tow and asked loudly, How much do you charge for a shampoo and a blow job?" I turned around and walked back out and never went back. My husband didn't say a word.....he knew better.

2. I was at the golf store comparing different kinds of golf balls. I was unhappy with the women's type I had been using. After browsing for several minutes, I was approached by one of the good-looking gentlemen who works atthe store. He asked if he could help me. Without thinking, I looked at him and said, "I think I like playing with men's balls."

3. My sister and I were at the mall and passed by a store that sold a variety of candy and nuts. As we were looking at the display case,the boy behind the counter asked if we needed any help. I replied,"No, I'm just
looking at your nuts." My sister started to laugh hysterically, the boy grinned, and I turned beet-red and walked away. To this day, my sister has never let me forget.

4. Have you ever asked your child a question too many times? My three-year-old son had a lot of problems with potty training and I was on him constantly. One day we stopped at Taco Bell for a quick lunch in between errands. It was very busy, with a full dining room. While enjoying my taco, I smelled something funny, so of course I checked my seven-month-old daughter, and she was clean. Then I realized that 3 year old Danny had not asked to go potty in a while, so I asked him if he needed to go, and he said "No." I kept thinking, "Oh Lord, that child has had an accident, and I don't have any clothes with me." Then I said, "Danny, are you SURE you didn't have an accident?" "No," he replied. I just KNEW that he must have had an accident, because the smell was getting worse. Soooooo, I asked one more time, "Danny, did you have an accident?" This time he jumped! up, yanked down his pants, bent over and spread his cheeks and yelled. "SEE MOM, IT'S JUST FARTS!!" While 30 people nearly choked to death on their tacos laughing, he calmly pulled up his pants and sat down. An old couple made me feel better by thanking me for the best laugh they'd ever had!

5. This had most of the state of Michigan laughing for 2 days and a very embarrassed female news anchor who will, in the future, likely think before she speaks. What happens when you predict snow but don't get any....a true story... We had a female news anchor who, the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn't, turned to the weatherman and asked: "So Bob, where's that 8 inches you promised me last night?" Not only did HE have to leave the set, but half the crew did too they were laughing so hard!

Now, didn't that feel good?
