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? Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was incredible as my daughter, Robyn, whom I hadn't seen in seven years flew in from Michigan to surprise and  spend Christmas with me! It's been the best one ever!!

I have a scheme for stopping war. It's this - no nation is allowed to enter a war till they have paid for the last one.

If you make any money, the government shoves you in the creek once a year with it in your pockets, and all that don't get wet you can keep.

In Hollywood the woods are full of people that learned to write but evidently can't read. If they could read their stuff, they'd stop writing.

It's a good thing we don't get all the government we pay for.

Happy New Year Sylvia! What a lovely Christmas you had! Your pictures today are so bright and serene and isn't it amazing how current Will Rogers still seems? (Actually a bit sad in some cases, you'd think things might have improved over the years.) But he is great fun to read.

Sylvia that's fantastic that your daughter surprised you. These are beautiful shots from your part of the world.

Beautiful phooto's as always Sylvia. You live in a beautiful country.

Al said...

Beautiful photos, Sylvia. That second one with the snowy mountains and the helicopter is my favorite, along with the one with the snowy mountains and the boat. Both are simply stunning! Have a great week.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, Sylvia. What more can I say? (Will Rogers and Mark Twain have already said all the good stuff.)

Sylvia, how great you were able to spend time with your daughter after seven years! Time goes so quickly and the years slip by much too easily. With all that is going on with the airlines these days her initiative is even more appreciated I’m sure. Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year.

Pat said...

Lovely, as always, Sylvia--My favoritie is the second one, the snow-capped peaks above the water. How long did your daughter stay?

Sylvia,
I am so excited that you were able to see your daughter...how wonderful! So there is no question it was a beautiful memorable holiday :)
I love your photos...

lotusleaf said...

Superb shots and apt quotes, as usual. I am curious to know whose statue is it in the third picture.

Sylvia K said...

Lotusleaf, thanks as always for stopping by! The statue in the third picture is of Leif Erickson. There is a very large Scandinavian population in Seattle and has been for many, many years. There are museums and parks and other things dedicated to them.

You found some beautiful shots of your world to share with us this week, Sylvia. I'm sure you had the best Christmas being able to share it with Robyn. Hope your New Year is just as special.

Your world looks really beautiful! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Brilliant photos and quotes! How wonderful to see your child after so many years. I haven't seen one of my children for 12 years now. It feels terrible.
Well anyway I hope he is happy and not lonely. I pray for him every day.
Sylvia, have a great New Year's Eve!
Thanks for your comment. At this moment I am waiting for a telephonecall asking me to collect my visitors! Everythin is ready for them.

Gorgeous pictures, as usual! And I LOVE the quotes, especially the first one and the one about paying for the last war before you are allowed to start another! I'm going now to follow the Will Rogers link to see what else he said!

wishing you a Happy New Year Sylvia. With a lot of fun blogging around the world. :)

The next to last image is particularly fine, Sylvia...

That Will Rogers quote about our money, the government and the water has never been more true than with the current regime...

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.
