Colorado Ladies Trip Info

From Sue Butler:
    $240.00 round trip from San Jose to Denver, ends 9/27/13, Southwest non-stop

From Mary Ryan:
    That is a good deal. I usually fly round trip for $250. Just so that you know, Sue, the Denver airport is approx. a little over an hour to Colorado Springs. There is an airport in Colorado Springs, however, it may be a little more to fly into there I am not sure. Is Bud still flying out with you to visit his relatives in Colorado Springs?
    About the date--we discussed this on the Cruise, we are looking at the weekend of Sept.27th thru 29th. I need everyone that is planning to come out to get together and determine when you will be flying out meaning Thursday afternoon or Friday morning and then when you will be flying back Sunday afternoon or Monday? As we discussed on the Cruise, anyone that chooses to come out on Thursday afternoon can stay here at my house for the night.(It is a 2 hour drive to Estes, therefore it would be too late on Thursday night to drive then.) I have one queen bed, one trendel bed, one twin bed, 3 couch's and one short couch. We have 2 full baths and 2 half baths. If you fly in Friday morning, we will most likely go straight to Estes Park. There are some that want to see our house, but, might not fly in until Friday morning, if that is the case, I mentioned that depending on when you fly out, we can drive to our house for lunch before going to the airport which is about 30 minutes from our house. Which ever everyone decides, I need to know as soon as possible so that I can call to reserve the Cabin. I will also need to know whether everyone wants to spend an extra $200 a night to stay in a "vacation" home to have a dishwasher and a T.V. which is the only difference between a "vacation" home and a Cabin. Bottom line is -- I am waiting for you guys to get together and make some decisions. Once this is done, I will take it from there and you guys will have a fun weekend to look forward to.

New Brighton Camping Info

From Sue Butler:

March 1st is the date to make your reservations for New Brighton. (Editor's Note:  Hopefully, everyone did or will soon)

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.   Marti has graciously offered to host our monthly coffee "field trip" on March 16th, 9:30 am (note the time change), as well as a clothing exchange.  RSVP to Marti to let her know how many to expect.

e-Mail Tidbit

Now that I'm older here's what I've discovered:

1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

2. My wild oats have turned into prunes and all-bran.

3. I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.

4. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.

5. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.

6. If all is not lost, where is it?

7. It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.

8. Some days, you're the dog; some days you're the hydrant.

9. I wish the buck stopped here; I sure could use a few.

10. Kids in the back seat cause accidents.

11. Accidents in the back seat cause kids.

12. It's hard to make a comeback when you haven't been anywhere.

13. The only time the world beats a path to your door is when you're in the bathroom.

14. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he'd have put them on my knees.

15. When I'm finally holding all the cards, why does everyone want to play chess?

16. Its not hard to meet expenses . . . they're everywhere.

17. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

18. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter.....
            ......I go somewhere to get something.....and then wonder what I'm hereafter
19. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.

20. DID I SEND THESE TO YOU BEFORE..........??????
