    October Meeting
    When:  Thursday, October 19, 7:15PM
    Where:  Janis' House
    What: Ice Cream Social & Homeless Boxes

                        We will be putting together adult and kid boxes for the Homeless Shelter.  Freebie
                        hotel soaps and samples from the mail would be great.  School-type items like
                        crayons, markers, pencils, erasers, etc. are always a hit with the kids.  You can
                        pick up things really cheap at places like at McFrugals.  RSVP Janis to let her know
                        what ice cream topping you will be bringing.  Janis will provide the ice cream.

                    Tahoe Ladies Trip Rehash
                        Only two comments will be made by this editor:
                        1.  Laura is the Hostess with the Mostest!
                        2.  Dolly wins the Nascar Women's Speed Racer Award!

    Adult 20 Years Together Party

                        This is open to all past and present Las Madres members. Invite anyone you are still
                        in touch with. It will be a Mexican theme. Wear Mexican or at least wear the colors
                        green red and white. This will be a  Mexican dinner followed by Mexican Train the
                        new domino rage played in bunko style. (Now if that doesn't motivate you to attend
                        to see if we can pull it off.)  More details to come.

                   The Heinrichsens Hit the Stage
                        David and Randi are in "Hello Dolly" (David is playing Ambrose(the Tommy Tune
                        part) and Randi is in the chorus) at Pioneer High School.  The dates are: Oct 4-7, at
                        7:30 pm and the tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for students.  This is an all parent
                        and teacher production to raise funds for Pioneer Drama.  Call Randi to get seats.

       Saturday Coffee Clatches Field Trip #2

                        Sue Ballard found out that the new Starbucks by Costentino's is open.  So we are
                        going to meet there next Saturday, October 7 for coffee around 9:00 a.m.

                    e-MAIL HUMOR

                        Midlife for Women...

                        Midlife is when you go to the doctor and you realize you are now so old
                        you have to pay someone to look at you naked.

                        The good news about midlife is that the glass is still half-full... of course
                        the bad news is that it won't be long before your teeth are floating in it.

                        Midlife women no longer have upper arms, we have wingspans ... we are
                        no longer women in sleeveless shirts, we are flying squirrels in drag.

                        Midlife has hit you when you stand naked in front of a mirror and can
                        see  your rear end without turning around.

                        You know you are getting old when you go for a mammogram and you
                        realize it is the only time someone will ask you to appear topless in film.

                        It's very hard to "get jiggy with it" in midlife... jiggly, yes, jiggy, no.

                        Midlife is when your 1970s Body-by-Jake now includes Legs-by-Rand
                        McNally (more red and blue lines than an accurately scaled map of the
                        state of Wisconsin).

                        Midlife is when you want to grab every firm young lovely in a tube top
                        and scream, "Listen, honey, even the Roman Empire fell and those things
                        will too!"

                        Midlife can bring out your angry, bitter side. You look at your latte-swilling,
                        beeper-wearing know it all teenager and think, "For this I have stretch marks?"

                        Midlife is when you start to repeat yourself... and your chins follow suit.

                        Midlife is when your memory really starts to go. The only thing you still
                        retain is water.

                        You become more reflective in midlife. You start pondering the "big"
                        questions-what is life, why am I here, how much Healthy Choice ice cream
                        can I eat before it's no longer a healthy choice?
