HOLIDAY GREETING COMING YOUR WAY

FROM ROURAL ROUTE 1, BOX 41A
DEERWOOD, MINNESOTA 56444
HAMLET LAKE, THE NORTH EAST SHORE

GREETINGS!!, FROM NORHT CENTRAL MINNESOTA'S FINEST, "THE KOOKIE
KAISER KLAN".

YUP, WE FINALLY SOLD OUR HOUSE IN BLOOMINGTON. ONE WEEK BEFORE
CHRISTMAS, A FRIEND OF KURT'S MADE US AN OFFER; ONE MONTH LATOR, WE
WERE RESIDENCE OF DEERWOOD TOWNSHIP.
WE LOVE IT HERE AND WE REALLY ENJOY BEING RETIRED. WE ARE REALLY
ONLY "SEMI-RETIRED". MARV HAS DONE A LOT OF PAINTING FOR THE WIDOWS
LIVING AROUND HERE AND I HAD A TEMPORARY NIGHT JOB AT THE LOCAL WILD
RICE PROCESSING PLANT DURING THE PEAK OF THEIR SEASON.
WE HAVE ALSO BEEN BUSY WORKING ON THE MANY PROJECTS AROUND HERE
THAT ARE UNFINISHED. ONE OF OUR BIG PROJECTS THIS YEAR, WAS TO POUR A
PATIO FLOOR ON THE LAKE SIDE, AND CEMENT OUR DRIVEWAYS AND SIDEWALKS.
THE DRIVEWAY OUT BACK IS FABULOUS, HAS MORE CURVES THAN DOLLY PARTON,
'COURSE, IT IS A LITTLE MORE SMOOTH. ANOTHER BIG PROJECT WAS TO HAVE
THE TOWNSHIP TAKE-OVER THE ROADWAY INTO OUR PLACE. IT HAD MANY MORE
BUMPS, RUTS AND CURVES.
WE HAVE, ALSO, HAD MANY GOOD TIMES THIS YEAR. WE SPENT A MONTH
LAST WINTER AT OUR BEAUTIFUL HOME IN TEXAS. MARV DIDN'T RETIRE UNTIL
THE SIXTEEN OF MARCH, SO WE DIDN'T HAVE MUCH TIME TO SPEND THERE, BEFORE
IT WAS TIME TO GET BACK HERE, AND GET AT THE MESS WE LEFT WHEN WE MOVED
EVERYTHING UP HERE IN JANUARY.
MY BROTHER MEL, HAS A HOME IN SUN LAKES, ARIZONA. HE AND CAROL
INVITED ME THERE IN FEBRUARY TO HELP CELEBRATE MOTHER'S BIRTHDAY. I
TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE INVITATION AND STAYED TWO WEEKS. YOU WOULD DO THE
SAME THING IF YOU WENT THERE. BESIDES HAVING A WONDERFUL HOST AND
HOSTESS, THEY HAVE A BEAUTIFUL HOME LOCATED IN AN ADULT COMMUNITY WITH
EVERY FACILITY ONE COULD ASK FOR, INCLUDING TWO SWIMMING POOLS, ONE
INDOOR AND A VERY LARGE BEAUTIFUL ONE OUTDOORS. MOTHER AND I WOULD TAKE
THE GOLF CART AND FLIT OVER THERE AND BASK IN THE HOT SUN AND, DO A
LITTLE SWIMMING TOO. RETURNING TO "COLD COUNTRY" WAS A BIT DIFFICULT.
OUR VERY BEST TIME THIS SUMMER WAS AT FLOYD AND BETTY'S WEDDING IN
JUNE. THEY INVITED ALL THE RELATIVES THAT HAD MIGRATED SOUTH AND ALL OF
US FOOLISH ONES THAT STILL LIVE HERE, AND CREATED A FAMILY REUNION. IT
WAS A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING AND A FABULOUS REUNION. THANKS, BETTY AND FLOYD
FOR A MEMORABLE WEEKEND.
KRYSTON AND JEFF DECIDED THEY SHOULD BE HUSBAND AND WIFE SO, THEY
MADE ALL THE ARRANGEMENTS, AND GOT MARRIED THE EIGHTEEN DAY OF MAY.
THEIR'S WAS A SMALL PRIVATE CEREMONY, BUT IT WAS NICE. THE TWINS WERE
EXCITED ABOUT GETTING A NEW DAD.
WE HAD MANY GOOD TIMES WHEN THE GRANDCHILDREN STAYED WITH US LAST
SUMMER. ANITA AND ALICIA LEARNED TO SWIM AND BRENDAN AND SHANNON, WITH
THE HELP OF GRANDPA, FOUND OUT WHERE THE FISH DON'T HANG OUT. WE WILL
HAVE THEM BACK AGAIN NEXT SUMMER, - OF COURSE NOT ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
WE HAD FUN TIMES AWAY FROM HERE TOO. WE WENT TO THE CITIES FOR
EASTER. KEITH AND SHARON INVITED ALL OF US FOR DINNER. AT THAT TIME,
NONE OF US REALIZED IT WOULD PROBABLY BE OUR LAST FAMILY GATHERING IN
THAT HOUSE. THEY HAVE SINCE, DECIDED THEY NEEDED A LARGER HOUSE. THEY
ARE BUILDING A NEW HOME IN LAKEVILLE. SUB-CONTRACTING IS NO FUN! THE
PLANS ARE FOR A JUNE OCCUPANCY.
SPEAKING OF HOMES, KAREN AND DON MOVED INTO A NEW ONE IN JULY. WE
LOVE IT. WE EVEN HAVE OUR OWN ROOM - EQUIPPED WITH OUR OWN PRIVATE
WATER-BED. CAN'T ASK FOR MUCH MORE THAN THAT, CAN YOU? IT ALSO HAS A
LARGE FAMILY ROOM, WITH A VERY NICE PING PONG TABLE, AND AROUND THAT
TABLE WE HAD A VERY NICE THANKSGIVING DINNER. IT SAT SIXTEEN PEOPLE,
COMFORTABLY. WHILE IN THE CITIES FOR THANKSGIVING WE WENT TO SEE THE
ADDITIONS AT KURT & HEIDI'S. THEIR CHOCOLATE LAB, HAD SEVEN PUPS THE
WEEK BEFORE THANKSGIVING. THEY SURE WERE CUTE PUPPIES, BUT, BLACK &
WHITE?
I MUST GET GET THIS IN THE MAIL NOW. NOTHING ELSE IS DONE. AS
USUAL, PANIC HAS STRUCK! LAST WEEKEND MARIAN AND I MADE FATTEMAN (MY
ONLY BAKING ACCOMPLISHMENT) ALSO WE HAD AN EARLY CHRISTMAS WITH MOTHER.
SHE LEAVES FOR ARIZONA RIGHT AFTER CHRISTMAS SO WE WILL NOT SEE HER TILL
SPRING. KRAIG WILL BE HOME FROM CALIFORNIA THIS CHRISTMAS, WE SURE
MISSED HIM LAST YEAR.
THE WHOLE KAISER KLAN WILL AGAIN BE SEATED AROUND THE PING PONG
TABLE ON CHRISTMAS DAY. MAY YOUR SEASON AND TIMES BE AS GOOD AND
LOVING AS OUR! BUT FOR NOW:
BED TIME HAS COME, MY "SITTER'S" SORE
I'VE SAID IT ALL, THERE AIN'T NO MORE,
ONE FINAL MESSAGE, AS I SIP SOME "CHEER":
Merry Christmas to all
and a Happy New Year
The Kookie
Kaiser Klan
