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?  Well, after a few hours of glorious sun and blue skies -- all of them during the time that I had an appointment, was on the bus, was preparing dinner etc. -- well, you get the picture -- no chance for photography. So, back to the files and some wonderful reminiscing of sunnier times!!

Lord, the money we do spend on Government and it's not one bit better than the government we got for one-third the money twenty years ago.

The income tax has made more liars out of the American people than golf has. Even when you make one out on the level, you don't know when it's through if you are a Crook or a Martyr.

I really like your summer scenes -- it certainly makes this cold day seem warmer. The waterfall is beautiful and, of course, you know how much I like roses.

Randi said...

You are always very productive, Sylvia! Beautiful shots and lovely quotes as always! I love the waterfall! And the summerflowers,,,look so fresch...make me long for spring.

Carol said...

Great summer shots, Sylvia. Love your waterfall scene. And the daisies are beautiful with the light and shadows playing on them.

Martha Z said...

You pulled out some wonderful shots from your archive. I guess the rains have decided they like you more than they like us down here.

Your daisies just jumped out at me like a burst of sunshine and filled me with joy! I LOVE it!

Love your photos especially the waterfall :)
Yesterday's news in Sweden told about a red waterfall here. Somebody had painted it!
I would have been better to paint it in photoshop I thought ;)
Best wishes Sylvia!

Birgitta - foto CHIP said...

It would have been better ... (correcting)

Elizabeth Mueller said...

I want to live in your world for a while Sylvia, mine is covered in snow. Great shots! Daisies are my favorite garden flower.

Ebie said...

Wohoo! I love your flowers! An early sign of spring which I always loom forward!

Ann said...

Those timber logs on the beach, are they going to waste? I come from Borneo, once we had plenty of timber, now, it is almost gone.

ρομπερτ said...

Impressive that you are once again able to melt the words into the photography !

Please have a wonderful Tuesday.

Indrani said...

I like these shots from your archives, it indicates the warmer days ahead. :)

Misalyn said...

Fantastic captures, as always! Thanks for sharing those wonderful and thought provoking quotes. I so love the flower photos.

Wren said...

You have a remarkable back file, Sylvia. Waterfalls, daisies, and George Carlin - all bring smiles in winter and on busy days.

Can't wait to see what you pull out for us next.

SandyCarlson said...

All of this is perfect. Thank you for the late night feast.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great series of shots. The waterfall was wonderful and I liked the flowers also.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I am in awe as always of your photographs. And I have the most enormous respect for the way you are able to go your library for the perfect photos;; I don't remember that you've ever used the same one twice. You must have either a great memory or a terrific photo-filing system or both. These were all just beautiful; the white rose is perfect.

Barb said...

Your photos are a perfect way to reminisce - when weather and time don't cooperate. I like the new Blog color and the Header sketch, too!

magiceye said...

gorgeous clicks! loved the one with flowers the best!!

stardust said...

Nice to meet you, Sylvia. I feel warmed up here with the bright daisies and the beautiful scenery. Thank you.

Johnny Nutcase said...

i love the big pile of driftwood on the beach, Sylvia. Excellent waterfall photo too! And look at those flowers!

Pietro said...

Hello Sylvia! Very beautiful "My World" post! I like your wonderful pictures, so well framed. Will Rogers' quotes are very good!
Happy week!

Team G Square said...

alicesg said...

Wow the flowers looked so beautiful, a sign that spring is coming?

Life Ramblings said...

your world is truly amazing. i like the flowers best.

NatureFootstep said...

lol. You have been working with your photos. Adding frames and stuff. I like that.
I also like the waterfall. All photos are great, but I have a really soft spot for waterfalls. And this one looks good. :)

Arija said...

Why, oh why does that lovely waterfall lall Willie Nelson's voice into being, something about "by a waterfall."
An armful of marguerites would do me just fine. I love their pristine beauty.

I'm sorry I have not visited more often lately. My brain is suffering from overload.

Have a great week . . . Arija

Francisca said...

Hi Sylvia! Lovely group of photos today... my favorite is the daises... they are so fresh looking! And George sure got it right! :-D

Louis la Vache said...

Those ferry boats are a signature of Western Washington. What a fine picture you've posted of one!

The Will Rogers quote about the cost of government reminds «Louis» of P.J. O'Rourke's quip: "Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys."

Marites said...

oh wow..such awesome photos you got, Sylvia! love them all!

maryt/theteach said...

Your quotes by Will Rogers and George Carlin as incredible and your photos depicting your world are magnificent. I wish I could think of more interesting things to say to describe your posts...they are outta this world!

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.
