WELCOME:
We would like to take this opportunity to say hello to Lakeside Terrace's newest resident, Angelina Wood from Vermont residing full time at 15 Driftwood Ln. We welcome you Angelina and look forward to getting to know you.

STORK NEWS:
Happy to report that our newest grandchild, (#5) Megan Lynn Carrell arrived as scheduled on May 5, 2004. Big sister Hailey (13months old) was thrilled, as were the proud parents. As proud grandparents we were happy to be in Wisconsin for the big event but not at all impressed with Wisconsin weather. Rich and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ruth Mosman and Dean Vann for all their help with the Seagull, enabling us to travel north for this special event. A huge thanks goes to Dorothy Thompson for taking on extra Seagull duty too.

Walt and Mary Karwasinski traveled to Illinois, where they welcomed their 6th great-grandchild. Ella Simone Sobek was born on June 10th at almost the same time the plane landed in Chicago. While in Illinois, they shared in the first birthday of Miles David Winn, number 5.

SPECIAL POEM FOR SENIOR CITIZENS!!
(Submitted by Dean Vann)                                                                                   A row of bottles on my shelf                                                                             Caused me to analyze myself.                                                                          One yellow pill I have to pop                                                                            Goes to my heart so it won't stop.                                                                        A little white one that I take                                                                                  Goes to my hands so they don't shake.                                                             The blue ones that I use a lot                                                                             Tell me I'm happy when I'm not.                                                                             The purple pill goes to my brain                                                                        And tells me that I have no pain.                                                                       The capsules tell me not to wheeze                                                                     Or cough or choke or even sneeze.                                                                    The red ones, smallest of them all                                                                   Goes to my blood so I won't fall.                                                                         The orange ones, very big and bright                                                                   Prevent my leg cramps in the night.                                                                     Such an array of brilliant pills                                                                             Helping to cure all kinds of ills.                                                                            But what I'd really like to know .........                                                                    Is what tells each one where to go!

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for It. For example I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

The following joke is a great warning to us worth passing on. "A middle-aged woman had a heart attack & was taken to the hospital. While on the operating table she had a near-death experience. Seeing God she said, Is my time up?" God said, "No, you have another 40 years, 2 months and eight days to live." Upon recovery the woman decided to stay in the hospital and have a facelift, liposuction and tummy tuck. She even had someone come in and change her hair color. Since she had more time to live she figured she might as well make the most of it. When all the above was completed she was released from the hospital. While crossing the street on her way home she was struck and killed by an ambulance. Arriving in front of God she demanded, "I thought you said I had another 40 years to live? Why didn't you pull me out of the path of the ambulance?" God replied, "I'm sorry,  I just didn't recognized you!"

                    Let's all shop at Sears !!!

I assume you have all seen the reports about how Sears is treating its reservist employees who are called up? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up ... Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years. I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution.

In light of this I Suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement it well deserves.

So I decided to check it out before I sent it forward. I sent the following email to the Sears Customer Service Department:

I received this email
Dear Customer:

Thank you for contacting Sears.

The Information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback. Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time.
