Mmmmm Wouldn't You Know!!!

Today, a friend's wife said to him, "Honey, get off your butt and fix that gutter downspout! And, I want it done before the end of the day!"
Well, as you all know, at my age, my friend, and most our friends, are retired and do have the time to address such "Honey-do's"..So, he invited some
of us neighborhood buddies over to help with the project. One is a sheet metal fabricator. One brought his welder. One brought beer and  Nachos. One brought a grill and burgers.               
Took us about 6 hours, and 30-40 beers, but we got it done just as we finished off the last of the beer and burgers.  As usual, the wife is still not happy!  Can't understand, cause all us guys love it! Personally, I cannot wait for rain!!     Mmmm  I just bet he can't!!

One Quiet Moment

Clouds are the sky's imagination. ~Terri Guillemets

Some Wisdom for the Day -- Any Day!!




The tragedy of life is not so much what we suffer, but rather what we miss.

-Thomas Carlyle



There comes a time when the world goes quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you'd better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you'll never understand what it's saying. -Sarah Dessen



Wherever you go, go with all your heart. -Confucius



Remember people will judge you by your actions, not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold, but so does a hard boiled egg.-???



Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. -Mother Teresa

Have a very happy, wise and beautiful Sunday!!!

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.
