GREETINGS: ALL OUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES!

KAISER KLAN REPORTING IN FOR THE THIRTEENTH ANNUAL YEAR. 'TWAS A
NICE
YEAR, BUSY AS USUAL, BUT ONE TELLS ME THAT THAT IS WHAT KEEPS ONE
YOUNG.
IF THAT IS TRUE, I'LL SOON BE BACK IN DIAPERS.

THE LIKES OF US ARE JUST FINE, WE HAVE INCREASED IN NUMBER AGAIN
THIS
YEAR. SHANNON MARIE WAS BORN TO KEITH AND SHARON ON THE 25TH OF
MAY.
SHE IS CUTE AS CAN BE, AND THAT IS NOT JUST A GRANDMOTHER TALKING,
IF
YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME, ASK THEM. OUR KLAN HAS THIRTEEN MEMBERS NOW,
BUT
WE KEEP LINDA AROUND TO MAKE IT FOURTEEN - KEEPS THE BAD LUCK
AWAY.
MAYBE, WHAT WE SHOULD DO IS SHIP HER TO KURT'S HOUSE FOR AWHILE.
THAT
BOY NEVER SEEMS TO RUN OUT OF BAD LUCK. WOULD YOU BELIEVE HE LOST
THREE
CARS AND TWO ENGINES THIS YEAR? I WOULDN'T EITHER. HE DOESN'T GIVE
UP
THOUGH, HE JUST BOUGHT A F ix O r R epair D aily PICK UP TRUCK. HOPE
HIS LUCK IS BETTER WITH THIS F-O-R-D!

KRAIG DAVID IS A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL, MY YOUNGEST WILL GRADUATE
IN
JUNE (fingers crossed). I SHALL THEN PROCEED TO CELEBRATE TO THE
FULLEST EXTENT. JOIN ME - WHOPEEEEEE.

WE HAVE ANOTHER GREAT EVEN HAPPENING BEFORE THAT THOUGH, MARVIN
ALFRED,
THE VOLUNTEER FIREMAN, WILL HAVE TWENTY YEARS IN AT FIRE FIGHTING
AND ON
JANUARY 18th, 1979, HE WILL HANG UP HIS BOOTS AND COAT AND SHUT
OFF HIS
"FIRE CALLING" RADIO, AND THERE WILL BE PEACE, BLESSED PEACE, NO
MORE
COLD DINNERS, NO MORE COMPANY STRANDED WITH JUST ME, NO MORE
"WHERE ARE
MY SHOES" AND BEST OF ALL NO MORE SUMMER VACATIONS INTERUPTED
BECAUSE
THE FIREMEN'S ANNUAL SLOW PITCH LARGEST IN THE LAND BASEBALL
TOURNAMENT
IS ON AND "NEEDS ME"! THINK WE WILL HAVE TO CELEBRATE THAT ONE TOO -
YIPEEEEEEEE

KRYS STILL LIVES IN EDEN PRAIRIE WITH HER, NOW TWO YEAR OLD, TWINS:
ALICIA AND ANITA. NOT MUCH EXCITING IN HER LIFE EITHER, 'CEPT IF YOU
WANT TO COUNT GOING "POTTY" LIKE A BIG GIRL"! WHEEEEEE

KAREN IS STILL WITH FIRST CHICAGO DATA, WORKING WITH THE COMPUTER
NOW,
AND ON NIGHT SHIFT. NOT ALL BAD 'CAUSE NOW SHE HAS DAYS FREE TO
WORK A
PART TIME JOB, THAT WAY SHE GETS TO BUY LUXURIES, LIKE FOOD.

OUR SUMMER WAS AS USUAL, WEEK DAYS, WORK HARD AT THE SAME PLACES
WE
WORKED LAST YEAR AND WEEEK ENDS, OFF TO THE LAKE. WE ARE GOING TO
START
BUILDING A YEAR ROUND HOME THERE THIS SUMMER, YOU ARE ALL INVITED,
(BRING YOUR HAMMERS). ONE THING WAS A BIT DIFFERENT THIS SUMMER, IT
DIDN'T RAIN ON LABOR DAY. THE WHOLE FAMILY WAS THERE AND BROTHER
FLOYD,
HIS DARLINGS, HELEN AND PATTI. SIS AND HUSBAND CAME TOO AND SO DID
THEIR CHILDREN FOR A DAY. GREAT FUN! YOU ARE ALL INVITED NEXT YEAR
(BRING YOUR HAMMERS).

WAKE UP MARILYN, HERE COMES YOUR PART, OUR HOUSE GUESTS THIS
SUMMER WERE
MANY. AMONG THEM, MY TWO FAVORITE DETROIT COUSINS, MARILYN AND
JACK.
MARILYN BROUGHT ALONG HER FAMILY THE SECOND TIME SHE CAME - NO, IT
WASN'T BECAUSE THEY WOULDN'T BELIEVE OUR HOUSEHOLD! EVEN THOU
SOME
PEOPLE DO HAVE A ROUGH TIME BELIEVING ALL THAT GOES ON THERE. HER
VISIT
WAS OF A MORE SERIOUS NATURE, BUT ALL TURNED OUT WELL. AUNT
MARGARET
(HER MOTHER) HAD OPEN HEART SURGERY, JUST LIKE JOHN WAYNE AND SHE
CAME
THROUGH IT FINE TOO, EVEN IF SHE DIDN'T MAKE THE PAPERS. THE
MIRACLES
THEY CAN WORK THESE DAYS. WE WERE HAPPY TO HAVE YOU, MARILYN,
COME
ANY TIME AND BRING THE FAMILY TOO, BUT - (DON'T FORGET YOUR
HAMMERS).

WELL, FOLKS, THE WRAPPING, SHOPPING, BAKING AND CLEANING IS NOT
FINISHED, BUT, I AM. REMEMBER, YOU ARE ALL INVITED TO ALL OUR
CELEBRATIONS, ESPECIALLY IF YOU WILL (BRING YOUR HAMMERS).

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT! original, hey?

AS EVER,
THE KAISER KLAN
