That's My World!

That's My World is hosted each week by Klaus and the My World team, Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and me. Join us and share your world with others from all over Our World! Just click on the post title, read the rules, sign up and play with us! So! How is your world this week? Have you taken time to see the beauty there? What is it about your world that makes you smile or laugh or feel grateful for?  As usual for autumn in Seattle, we have run the gamut from gay and gorgeous to gray and grumpy -- I'm into the G words today! But here's a few samples of what I mean!

A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.

Loyalty to the country always. Loyalty to the government when it deserves it.
Mark Twain


A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
Arnold H. Glasow


Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.
Mark Twain

Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
Mark Twain

 

Necessity is the mother of taking chances.
Mark Twain

You have a little bit of everything in these photos beauty, cuteness, mystery, etc. I like them all!

I can´t stand in the way of your grumpy wisdom. The yellow clouds against the black were really enjoyable. The winter clouds in full bloom.

Reader Wil said...

You've had misty weather - and some lovely skies too. No snow yet? Or has it melted away? Have a great week.

Rajesh said...

Your world is beautiful. The sceneries are amazing.

Carver said...

You certainly have had a wide range of weather. They all look beautiful to me but I know too much gray can make one long for the blues. Good that you got it all.

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.
