TO ALL WHOSE FRIENDSHIP MEANS SO MUCH AND THOSE WITH WHOM WE'RE SOME HOW OUT OF TOUCH:

GREETING! FROM THE KOOKIE KAISER KLAN

WE HAD A "HAPPENING AND HAPPY YEAR, SURE HOPE YOURS WAS THE SAME.
HERE IS HOW IT WENT: IN JANUARY MARV AND CREDIT UNION BOUGHT A NEW CHEV. PICKUP (TRUCK). ONE WEEK LATER WE TOOK A FAST TRIP TO DETROIT IN IT. EXCEPT FOR ACCOMPLISHING THE BUSINESS WE WENT FOR AND SEEING MARV'S BROTHER & WIFE AND GETTING TO VISIT BROTHER BUD, WIFE AND FAMILY IN CHICAGO, THE TRIP WAS A DISASTER. NEXT TIME I WILL FLY. DON'T BELIEVE THOSE ADS ABOUT COMFORTABLE TRUCKS.

THE FOLLOWING MONTH MARV AND OUR 11 YEAR OLD HOCKEY PLAYER, KRAIG, TOOK A TRIP WITH THE TEAM TO WINNEPEG. THEY BOTH HAD A REAL FUN TIME. MOM STAYED HOME TO KEEP THE REST OF THE CREW IN LINE. KEITH & SHARON WERE BUSY MAKING WEDDING PLANS AND MARV & JOYCE WERE BUSY PICKING OUT CARPETING AND FURNITURE TO GET THE HOUSE IN SHAPE, WHICH OF THE TWO IS MORE HECTIC IS STILL TO BE DEBATED. I CAN TRUTHFULLY SAY THOUGH, THAT THEY ARE "WINTER PROJECTS".

may was here before we knew it. showers for keith & sharon, and cabin opening for those other two afore mentioned people. busy, busy, busy. wedding plans ARE COMPLETED, REHEARSEL DINNER & THE BIG DAY. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING AND A FUN RECEPTION. WISH ALL OF YOU COULD HAVE MADE IT IN OUR HAPPINESS. AFTER ALL, WE DID GAIN A BEDROOM, AND A CHANCE TO WATCH OUR CHOICE OF TV PROGRAMS.

KEITH AND SHARON HAVE HAD TWO FAMILY ADDITIONS, A KITTEN NAMED "PIPPIN" AND A NEW NOVA HATCHBACK. THEY HAVE A NICE LITTLE APARTMENT. SHARON WORKS AT THE RICHFIELD BANK & KEITH AT NORTH CENTRAL AIRLINES ON RESERVATIONS. THEY PLAN TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL NEXT YEAR. (I THINK.)

DURING THE FIRST WEEK OF JUNE OUR MOTOR WAS STOLEN FROM OUR "RUN-A-BOUT" & KURT ENLISTED IN THE ARMY AND LEFT ON HIS 18th BIRTHDAY, THE 29TH OF JUNE. TWO PEOPLE GAINED FROM THESE EVENTS. BELIEVE IT OR NOT. KRAIG OCCUPIED KURT'S BEDROOM, AND MARV GOT A NEW BIGGER, MOTOR WITH A BOAT TO MATCH. MOTHER GOT A HEADACH.

ON JULY 13TH, KEITH'S 20TH BIRTHDAY, OUR TOY POODLE, FRESKA, PRESENTED US WITH TWO PUPPIES. ONE A POODLE, THE OTHER: WHO KNOWS? YOU SEE, MARV DIDN'T GET HIS GLASSES 'TILL OCTOBER. SIS MARIAN HAS THE POODLE AND A NEIGHBOR JUST LOVES THE OTHER PUP, SO HE LETS IT LIVE THERE.

LATER IN JULY CAME JOYCE'S BIG TIME. GILBERT (HER ALMA-MATER) HAD AN ALL CLASS REUNION, WICH INCLUDED GRADUATES FROM 1910 thru 1971. THE WHOLE FAMILY WAS TOGETHER, AND WE VISITED WITH SO MANY FRIENDS THAT CAME FROM ALL OVER THE U.S. AND EVEN ENGLAND.

DURING AUGUST WE WERE STILL WAITING FOR SUMMER TO START, BUT LABOR DAY ARRIVED WITHOUT MUCH MORE THAN A HINT THAT SUMMER HAD BEEN AROUND. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT FALL ARRIVED RIGHT AFTER SPRING. THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN SOME PLACE TO REPORT THAT SUMMER WAS MISSING. THAT'S NOT ALL THAT WAS MISSING, LATE IN SEPT., OUR CABIN WAS BROKEN IN AGAIN AND MOST EVERYTHING OF VALUE WAS TAKEN. SOME OF THE ITEMS WERE RECOVERED AND INSURANCE HELPED US REPLACE SOME ITEMS.

AS OF THIS DATE, KAREN IS A JUNIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL, AND WOULD YOU BELIEVE, AUTO TECH. IS HER FAVORITE SUBJECT. KRYSTON, A TYPICAL 8TH GRADER IS MOODY, RESTLESS, BUSY, AND MESSY - BUT ALWAYS WILLING TO EXPERIMENT WITH SOME NEW COOKING OR BAKING IDEA IN THE KITCHEN.

KRAIG IS ALL BOY - LOVES SPORTS, ANY KIND - HATES GIRLS (YET). HE IS PLAYING GOALIE FOR THE PEE WEE TEAM WITH THE BLOOMINGTON AMATEUR HOCKY ASSOCIATION. KURT GETS HOME QUITE OFTEN FROM FORT CARSON, COLORADO, WHERE HE IS NOW STATIONED, AND "WORKING" FOR THE U.S. ARMY AS A MECHANIC.

HE WILL BE HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS, TO MAKE OUR GROUP COMPLETE, AS WE ALL SIT DOWN TO DINNER CHRISTMAS DAY AT SIS MARIAN'S WITH MOM, DAD, BROTHER MEL & HIS WIFE, ALL THE CHILDREN, THEIR GIRL OR BOY FRIENDS AND A FEW OTHER RELATIVES WITH A GAY CHRISTMAS SPIRIT.

GOSH, THE ABOVE SOUNDS GOOD. I CAN HARDLY WAIT FOR THIS HARD PART, LIKE CLEANING, SHOPPING, BAKING AND CARD WRITING TO BE OVER WITH SO I CAN GET TO THAT PART THE CHRISTMAS IS ALL ABOUT.
BLESS YOUR ALL,
AND A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
THE KOOKIE KAISER KLAN
