Sky Watch Friday!

 Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by Klaus and the Sky Watch team of Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and me. Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week! Click on the icon and sign up today! The last two days have been so gorgeous and WARM -- well, in the 60s! We're supposed to have one more beautiful day and then a week of rain!! So, here is some of the beauty before the rain gets here!

To do good is noble. To tell others to do good is even nobler and much less trouble.
Mark Twain

Apparently, there is nothing that cannot happen today.  — Mark Twain

Be careless in your dress if you must, but keep a tidy soul.  — Mark Twain

The history of our race, and each individual’s experience, are sown thick with evidence that a truth is not hard to kill and that a lie told well is immortal.  — Mark Twain

I believe I have no prejudices whatsoever. All I need to know is that a man is a member of the human race. That's bad enough for me.  — Mark Twain

I always take Scotch whiskey at night as a preventive of toothache. I have never had the toothache; and what is more, I never intend to have it.  — Mark Twain

No prejudices-clouds were my favourites from this bunch. Curly and cute. You have so many clouds this time. Mark is as witty as always.

Lovely shots Sylvia,

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.
