Do the best you can, and don't take life too serious.
Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.

Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.

I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat.

I bet after seeing us, George Washington would sue us for calling him "father."

I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.

Nice shots of more clement weather than we have had this week. Oh well, as they say, "we need the rain". But does it always have to be all or nothing?

Your photos are lovely reminders of beautiful days!

Wasn't Rogers a wise, wise man? And funny too!

Rajesh said...

Beautiful shots, very scenic. I loved the shot of golden sky most.

I love the Will Rogers quote about taking comedians seriously and politicians as a joke. That is the way things seem to be going. Your photos are magnificent as ever. The sunset picture is awe-inspiring in its beauty.

Fantastic photos, Sylvia. I'm with Will Rogers. I was going to call myself an Independent, but now I see I can stick with Democrat.

Sylvia, all such beautiful and inviting photos. We were teased with a few hours of sun and blue sky down here in the valley, and hopefully we can have a clear one tonight.

I wanted to be sure and wish you a joyous and blessed holiday season and say thank you for what you do. See you in the New Year. ;)

lotusleaf said...

The seascapes are lovely. I always enjoy the accompanying words.

Dianne said...

the water looks so different in each shot and that's wonderful!!

Al said...

Gorgeous shots, definitely worth looking back on, Sylvia. The first one with the beach, and the snow-capped mountains above the water, are both exquisite to me. Have a great Christmas!

alicesg said...

Lovely photo of the beach. Reminded me of my trip to Ocean Road in Melbourne Australia.

KB said...

I could do with a dip in the water at the mo. Beautiful.

Linda Reeder said...

Ah, yes! Was that blue sky day just yesterday!
I have never really read Will Rodgers and Mark Twain, except for a few of twain's novels, but their quotes are amazing, and obviously, timeless.

magiceye said...

incredibly beautiful pics from your world!

ladyfi said...

So many wonderful (and warm) memories of the year. Here's wishing you a wonderful Christmas!

Absolutely stunning my friend. So well done and the quotes are fabulous. Happy Holidays to you and your family :)

Kay L. Davies said...

Beautiful photos, Sylvia. I always love your posts, and it's hard to decide who is better, Will Rogers or Mark Twain!
Wishing you the very best during the Christmas season,

Sweet pictures and some good quotes.
I actually reconized a few of those pictures
Good work

Arija said...

I have driven through Seattle so I know a little about how beautifully situated it is but you always manage to photograph it as though for a tourist brochure. Great pictures

Our son and family are arriving today, 5 extra beds etc. to organise in the house on the mountain as well as all else and the Prof's up coming 75th birthday on Thursday. I'm just too old for all the doing at this time of year.

I just long for a quiet Christmas time without stress.

Happy days my dear. I'll just think of your calming sunset.

Hazel said...

Lovely scenes and Will Rogers's thoughts cracked me up. Merry Christmas, Sylvia!

Reader Wil said...

There can't be a greater contrast between your photos and mine! Yours are showing a much milder scenery than my snowy photos. I like yours very much and the one with the red moon ( or sun?) is stunning! I have never seen either of them. Your qoutes are to the point. I shall quote the one about everybody's ignorance often, but then in Dutch.

eileeninmd said...

Sylvia, gorgeous shots. I especially love the water shots. The scenery is just beautiful. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Francisca said...

I think you've made lemonade out of your lemons, Sylvia... and sweet it is! Have I told you how much I like your Holiday header? What a nice and talented friend you have! I hope this holiday season is what you'd want it to be, Sylvia.

Wren said...

Sylvia, I can't ever decide which I enjoy most: your lovely photos or the pithy quotes that accompany them. So I guess I'll have to have two favorites.

Best wishes and happy new year!

PS Isn't it amazing how relevant Will Rogers is to the present state of politics in the US?

Jo said...

Hi Sylvia;) what STUNNING photos of different scenes, I keep going back and looking again. This is the first time I hear of Will Rogers, and love the sayings! Thanks for another year of being part of memes such as this one. May you, your husband and precious family and pets have a wonderful Christmas. Greetings from Jo, South Africa

Y. Ikeda said...

The third quote and the last photo are my favorites. Stunning photos showing your world!!!
Have a wonderful day.

When it's cold and grey it's so good to look back to the warmth and colour of the summer.
Hope all is well with you and yours. I wish you a happy Christmas and a healthy and fulfilling New Year :-)

SandyCarlson said...

I love the name of that yellow boat! Beautiful, heart-filled post. Thanks, Sylvia.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful post Sylvia -- that golden sunset reflection is absolutely heart-stopping.

Thank you for the year-long gift of your beautiful posts and have a MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Wolynski said...

Is that your weather now? It's been pouring in Vegas for days.

Merry Xmas!

James said...

I guess there is not much more to add other than thanks for posting these great pics!

JM said...

All are great but the 'golden pic' is outsanding!

Jay said...

Hahaha! I LOVE that first quote. Perfectly true! Lovely pictures too .. hard to believe the sea can be that colour when you look out of the window at snow and ice.

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.
