Our World!!


Welcome to Our World!!! Now that I’m an “old broad” and don’t have to return to a classroom anymore and live in a part of my world that seems to love the colorful beauty of Autumn. I do look forward to this colorful time of year particularly here in the northwest US!! And it’s already beginning to put in a timid approach after the long, hot summer!! But I looked back today and got so excited realizing that it won’t be long before I can see sights like this every day!!
I hope you enjoy!! Have a great week!!

Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.
Faith Baldwin

Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.
Samuel Butler

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
Elizabeth Lawrence
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.

One Quiet Moment



Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.
-- Stanley Horowitz

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
