June Newsletter | “Log of the Trail”

Meeting Announcement: “Summertime, Summertime, Sum, Sum, Summertime!” Our June meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 26, 2012, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in the Fiesta Room of the Hallmark Apartments in Alpine.

President Ramblings

From the Editor: EPIC FAIL! My Outlook became corrupted and crashed last week. The latest backup I could restore was from waaaay back on May 5. Which means I lost 45 days of emails – including Jackie’s ever eloquent ramblings. (And Jackie is out of town, or else I would ask for them again.)

As a result, you’re getting me (the editor) instead. It’s tough I know. And I will stumble through, try to glean from my distant memory what Jackie wrote and sent to me… Well, dang! Memory has failed me, also.

So, let’s do this! I’ll tell you what I do know, fake a little of the rest, and have faith, that no matter what, we’ll have a great meeting as always!

First, we are starting our Summertime Meetings this Tuesday, June 26, at 7:00 pm in the Fiesta Room of the Hallmark Apartments in Alpine.

Second, bring something with you that you would like to read. Remember to keep it short (up to 500 words).

Third, I believe my sketchy memory recalls that refreshments will be the still delectable leftovers from our End of Year Party.

We’re a great, creative and flexible group! So I know this meeting will be just right.

Oh and we also elected new officers – of which I have no clue, even tho I was there. LOL! So next month’s newsletter will be from our new president – whoever he or she is.

Your fearless (and natural blonde) Editor!

Trail Bits

Reba Cross Seals follows this writers’ blog http://stevelaube.com/blog/, and the other day it contained an amazing video on how the internet works, simple enough for even her to sorta’ understand. She thought our members might enjoy it since writers today could not do without the internet. (Editor: From someone whose business depends on the Internet, Reba is right! This is a great video!)
