                           A “sweaty” welcome from HOT! HUMID! Georgia. Well, my train trip was another
PRESIDENT                  big adventure. Due to problems from Emeryville to Chicago, which included a fire
                           along tracks that was still smouldering, freight trains lined up to cross the Missis-
                           sippi River on the only bridge available in the area due to flood damage etc.... the
                           train was 6 hours late, my 4 hour original layover cushion didn’t help me one bit.
                           So, I spent one night in a hotel, which included my dinner, breakfast, lunch and cab
                           fare..all compliments of Amtrak. Was able to make connections the following day
                           which allowed me a sleeper car from Chicago to Washington DC and I had to settle
                           for coach from Washington to Atlanta. Every time I end up in Coach, I know why
                           I prefer getting a sleeper car. Oh, well, now I have the trip home to look forward to
                           and I am second adventure of the trip.

                            Things are going well here and Mom is doing really well for her age. She still tries to
                            knit but does more ripping than she does knitting. Her eyesight is worse but she tries
  and for her that is most important. She loves to watch her game shows and this is really not my favorite thing
  to do but she has control of the remote until 8 PM when she heads off to bed. Then I get the remote until I
  decide to turn in about 11 PM, which is early for me but I need to be ready to face the next day by 7 AM. I do
  know that the time change is easier to adjust to when coming by train.

  I learned from messages sent to me after the last Board meeting that there is some concern about the cost of the
  Christmas Dinner this year. Due to the fact that we do not know when or if the cost of the hall will increase
  for us, we have to really be careful with the spending. I told the Board a couple months back that if we find
  the cost of our Annual Christmas Dinner too expensive and some of the club members were not going to be
  able to go, then it was time for a change in venue. This might just be the year for such a change. With the
  cost of one dinner running $40-$45, this could be cause for some concern. Think about it and we will have a
  short General Meeting when I return to make a final decision after getting a report from Rita and her findings
  at Massimos.

  I understand that things are shaping up for the picnic and the sign up sheets are out and filling up. Don’t
  forget to bring a wrapped “white elephant” for the fun filled “drawing and stealing” event of the day. This is
  where things get down right crazy and what you end with one year becomes what you wrap and get rid of the
  next. This is really a lot of fun.

  Hope to see you all on the dance floor when I return on September 8.


  El Presidente’      Rich;
                    I forgot to include a very important notice for the club, I received a note from Gretchen
                    Richardson, Jeanette’s daughter-in-law, informing me that they had to put her in a skilled
                    nursing home because her needs were more than they could help with. She was to the
                    point where it was 24/7 (around the clock) care and the family was unable to get much
                    rest at night. Her address is Jeanette Richardson.....1071 Fulton Ave. #111....Sacramento,
                    CA. 95825. Cards might be nice but I am not sure just how much she is remembering
                    these days.....prayers are a good alternative.
