TENTH ANNUAL KAPERS

SHOPPING! BAKING! CLEANING! AND WRAPPING!
WE'RE GETTING READY FOR THE "25TH HAPPENING"

'TIS THE EVE BEFORE FRUSTRATION AND ALL THRU OUR HOME
CONFUSION IS REIGNING, TO WHICH WE ARE PRONE.

THE CARDS ARE ADDRESSED AND THIS LETTER IS WRITTEN
GOOD THING IT IS DONE 'CAUSE I'M SURE TIRED OF SITTEN.

GREETING AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO EVERYONE OF YOU FROM EVERYONE OF US. DID YOU HAVE A GOOD YEAR? THAT BAD HEY? WELL OURS WAS PRETTY GOOD AND THE PARTS THAT WERN'T, I PROMISE NOT TO TELL.
SHORTLY AFTER CHRISTMAS ( in March ) KRAIG'S HOCKEY TEAM WENT TO THE STATE TOURNAMENT, AND CAME HOME WITH A TROPHY. UNCLE MEL AND AUNT CAROL ATTENDED THE FINAL "ONE HOUR" GAME - A "SLIZZARD" (part sleet part blizzard) KEPT DARKENING THE ARENA - THE GAME WENT INTO OVERTIME - THREE HOURS LATER - THE FINAL BUZZER - WE HAD A TROPHY - THEY WENT HOME TO BURNED PORK CHOPS - THREATENING NEVER, NEVER TO TAKE A CHANCE WITH PORK CHOPS AGAIN.

WHAT A CELEBRATION WE HAD THE END OF MAY FOR SIS MARE & HARV'S TWENTY FIFTH ANNIVERSARY. THE WEATHER WAS BEAUTIFUL, THEY RECEIVED MANY GUESTS AND THE FINEST OF GIFTS.

CABIN DAYS CAME AND WENT SO FAST EVEN OUR FLOATING DOCK KEPT BREAKING ANCHOR AND RETURNING TO SHORE. SEEMED SHORTLY AFTER WE OPENED WE WERE HAVING OUR USUAL LABOR DAY FUN WEEKEND. HOW COME WINTER IS SO LONG AND SUMMER SO SHORT?

KAREN MOVED TO PORTLAND OREGON EARLY IN THE SPRING. SHE DELIVERS CARS TO AUCTIONS FOR A CAR DEALER FOR A LIVING - LOVES HER JOB AND PORTLAND TOO. WE'LL BE GLAD TO SEE HER FOR THE HOLIDAYS.

KURT EARNED AN HONORABLE DISCHARGE FROM THE ARMY AND RETURNED HOME ON HIS 21st BIRTHDAY - (JUNE 29th) EXACTLY THREE YEARS AFTER THE DAY HE LEFT HOME. HE IS EMPLOYED WITH FIRESTONE - REALLY LIKES IT (ALWAYS DID LIKE TO GET DIRTY).

KRAIG A FRESHMAN AT OAK GROVE, WORKS HARD "TENDING GOAL" AGAIN THIS YEAR, PRETTY HARD AT SCHOOL AND REAL HARD AT TEASING KRYSTON.

KRYSTON WORKS HARDEST AT NOT DOING MUCH AT HOME, BUT SHE IS ANOTHER LOYAL BRIDGEMAN EMPLOYEE AND KEEPS UP HER SCHOOL WORK AND HER PURSUIT OF BOYS. THAT'S NOT ALL BAD.

GUESS WHAT? WE ARE HAVING A BABY! NO, NO, NOT ME - SHARON AND KEITH ARE - BUT WE'LL GET TO SHARE. THEIR LITTLE "BOY" IS DUE AROUND THE END OF FEBRUARY. OH, HAPPY DAY!

THAT FINISHES OUR ROLL CALL, 'CEPT FOR FRESCA - SHE IS KINDA CRABBY THESE DAYS BUT WILL STILL JOIN US IN WISHING ALL - A MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR. (you all have one now, you hear?)

Lovingly,
Joyce, Marv
and The Kaiser
