THOUGHTS:   One of the many things I enjoy at the Club is being a part of the paper staff.   I have been on the staff except for the first two weeks since it started in its present form in 1988.   And, of course, all the activities are great.   Since we expect to head north this weekend, want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a happy, healthy summer.   And, I'm already looking forward to our return to "our little bit of paradise" in the fall.       --SJB
