HOLIDAY GREETINGS TO OUR FRIENDS NEAR AND FAR

THE BEST TO OUR RELATIVES, WHEREVER YOU ARE
MAY THIS HOLIDAY GREETING FIND YOU HEALTHY AND FIT
LET'S CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS, THIS LETTER IS "WRIT".

And now, - for your reading pleasure,
THE KAISER KLAN'S CHRISTMAS LETTER ---

AS USUAL, WE HAVE HAD A BUSY YEAR WITH NO MAJOR SADNESS AND NO
MAJOR
GLADNESS. OUR BEST TIMES ARE USUALLY AT THE LAKE HOME. WE RANG IN
THE
NEW YEAR THERE. ALL THIRTEEN OF US - ONLY KRAIG WAS MISSING - HE
HAD TO
WORK - PRETTY GOOD PLANNING I'D SAY. THE SNOW WAS DEEP WHEN WE
GOT
THERE AND IT GOT DEEPER WHILE WE WERE THERE. I EVEN DROVE A
SNOWMOBILE
- WHAT FUN! WE ARE ALL GOING UP AGAIN THIS YEAR, BUT THE CHANCES OF
HAVING SNOW ON THE GROUND ARE ALMOST NIL. BEST WE PRAY ALOT. THIS
SUMMER WHILE MEL & CAROL WERE STAYING THERE WE SURPRISED THEM
WITH A
FAREWELL PARTY. MEL'S OPEN MOUTH AND WIDE EYES, AS WE ALL PARADED
IN,
REGISTERED ALL THE SHOCK WE WANTED. WE HAD A GREAT TIME. THE
WEATHER
WAS GOOD TO US, WE ALL GOT TO SWIM AND PADDLE AROUND IN MY PADDLE
BOAT.
MOTHER REALLY LIKED THAT.

ED & GENE CAME ALL THE WAY FROM TEXAS TO SPEND A FEW DAYS UP
THERE.
KATHI & DON WERE THERE FOR A WEEKEND, BROTHER BUD & REENIE FROM
CHICAGO
CAME AS DID THEIR THREE OFF SPRING. MY SIS WAS THERE A COUPLE TIMES
AND
FLOYD, BOB, PATTY JEAN & HER FRIEND SPENT TIME. MARV HAD TO GET THE
DECK DONE SOME HOW. THE DECK DID GET BUILT AND WE ALL ENJOYED IT.
SUMMER IS GREAT, FALL IS NEXT TO NIL:
BUT WINTER, AFTER NEW YEAR, IS ALL DOWN HILL.
MEL AND CAROL SOLD THEIR HOME IN SHORVIEW AND MOVED TO SUN LAKES,
ARIZONA LAST SUMMER. THEY HAVE A NEW HOME THERE AND MEL IS
TEACHING IN
A NEW SCHOOL.
KRAIG MOVED TO CALIFORNIA IN SEPTEMBER. HE WASN'T HOME MUCH BUT
THE
EVIDENCE WAS THERE: THREE BATHTOWELS, FOUR SHIRTS, TWO PAIR OF
PANTS
AND THREE SETS OF UNDERWEAR - DAILY.

WE ARE ALSO PLANNING A MOVE. OUR HOUSE IS UP FOR SALE. WHEN IT IS
SOLD
AND WE ARE WELL INTO SPRING, WE ARE GOING TO RETIRE AND MOVE UP TO
OUR
LAKE HOME - FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS. DURING THE WINTER --- WE WILL
BE
LIVING IN OUR NEW HOME ON LAKE CONROE IN TEXAS. WE WILL BE SHARING
A
NEW, STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION, HOME WITH MARV'S BROTHER AND HIS
WIFE.
IN OTHER WORDS, THIS IS OUR LAST FULL WINTER IN THIS COLD, COLD,
SNOWY
LAND. MARV'S ARTHRITIS AND MY BURITIS CAN HARDLY WAIT. WE WILL
SEND
OUR NEW ADDRESSES SOON AS THEY ARE KNOWN TO US. WE WILL ALWAYS
BE HOME
- IN MINNESOTA - FOR CHRISTMAS - YOU CAN COUNT ON THAT.

WE HAVE MORE GOOD NEWS. KEITH AND SHARON ARE PLANNING ON "QUITE A
FEW
CHANGES" THIS SPRING. THEIR BABY IS DUE SOMETIME THE END OF APRIL -
FIRST PART OF MAY. BREN WANTS A BOY AND SHANNON, WELL, SHE SAYS
SHE
WILL RUN AWAY FROM HOME IF IT ISN'T A GIRL. TWINS WOULD BE THE
ANSWER.
SPEAKING OF TWINS, KRYSTON'S STARTED KINDERGARTEN THIS YEAR.
ANITA AND
ALICIA LOVE IT - THEIR TEACHER SENT HOME A PLEA FOR NAME TAGS. KURT
AND
HEIDI'S NEW ADVENTURE IS A REGISTERED, COCOA, LABADORE, PUP NAMED
BRANDY. IT IS REALLY A PRETTY DOG. KEITH'S NEW DOG IS CALLED "ANGEL".
SOME NAMES FIT THE DOG AND SOME NAMES - WELL, YOUR FIRST THOUGHT
IS -
"THEY GOTTA BE KIDDING".
KAREN & DON & BOBBIE MCGEE, ARE STILL HAPPY AS THEY CAN BE. THEY
WENT
DOWN TO TEXAS THIS SUMMER TO LOOK INTO RELOCATING. TWO DAYS IN
THE HEAT
CONVINCED THEM THAT MINNESOTA WINTERS EVEN WITH RECORD SETTING
COLD AND
SNOW DID NOT MATCH TEXAS SUMMER HEAT.

THIS LETTER HAS COME TO A CLOSE, I'M SO LUCKY, AND SO ARE YOU. SOME
OF
YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT A WHOLE YEAR TO HEAR ABOUT OUR MOVING AND
OUR NEW
GRANDCHILD, PROMISE - YOU WON'T LET THAT RUIN YOUR CHRISTMAS!

MAY THE GOOD LORD SHINE HIS FACE UPON YOU AND KEEP YOU THROUGH THE
COMING YEAR.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR
THE KAISER KLAN
