Your oldest memory - What were you doing 10 years ago?

I received these questions from a good friend and I was amazed at what suddenly popped into my mind regarding my oldest memory. My oldest memory is my fourth birthday, sitting in a little, "my size", fold up lawn chair, in a pair of new pajamas, next to a cotton field in Louisiana, but those are the only details I remember.

And ten years ago, wow! I was working at one of the best, most fun jobs I ever had, I had taken a cruise and learned to snorkle and was dancing the tango three nights a week! Wow! is right! Wonderful!

Today -Your first thought today, this morning.
My first thought this morning was my lost blog and my new one.

If you built a time capsule today what would it contain?
Pictures of my children, copies of the books I have written, the hoped for results of the election in two weeks, and a dream for a better future for our country and the world.

Tomorrow? Working with the kids in the Jump Start program, working on my blog.
This year? Continue to learn, to be of service in whatever way I can, continue to blog -- hopefully with greater success.

What do you see yourself doing 14 years from now?
Well, considering how old I'll be in fourteen years, I just hope I'm still as healthy as I am now, still blogging, writing, taking photos and enjoying each precious moment of my life, my children and my friends.

I like when bloggers answer memes. It's an opportunity to reveal more details that most posts simply can't. I'm a bit of a curmudgeon, so I don't do memes, but I always appreciate it when others do.

BTW-- I would like to follow your blog, but I don't see a link to do so. I wonder why.

Good answers, go girl.

Congratulations on your new blog.(Maybe I should say moved blog.)

In 14 years I hope I am still on my feet. It's too late to dance the Tango, but I would love to.

Great blog Sylvia, There must be bugs going around the net 'cos my pc has been giving me problems too, I'm hoping that if I give it a rest,and get rid of a lot of rubbish my PC will calm down, fingers crossed anyway. Am going to have 2 days without the net - will I survive it - heaven only knows, I will likely act like a bear with a sore head ! ARGGH ! I know I'm a terrible woman... will try and spoil him for a change hehehe.. He'll not know what way is up ! Cheers for now, Kate x.

I'm glad to have found your new blog. I was wondering why Google hadn't notified me of any new posts from you.

Good luck with the new blog.

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.
