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? Oh, yes! I'm still depending on my files to show you my world in better times! And wishing you all a very Happy Valentine's Day in your world! I hope you enjoy a view from my seaplane adventure a couple years ago -- a birthday present from my son, there's a trip to Pikes Market again, this time for some sidewalk music and gorgeous flowers, happy flamingos at the animal park and a look at Seattle from across the harbor!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY FROM SAM, MOJO AND SYLVIA!!!

Your World Is beautiful! And you are right we have to be careful with this overworked old world of ours! There is only one of it.

Lovely views of your world, Pike's Place Market is another place (there are too many) that I would like to revist.
I like these quotes from yet another of our American philosophers. You keep reminding us that it is not necessary to travel across the pond to find them.

Gorgeous photos and wonderful quotations, Sylvia! Those flowers really spell warmer days :-)

ladyfi said...

What lovely shots of sunnier times! Hang in there - spring will be here before you know it!

Love reading your quotes Sylvia.... they inspire me to be more creative.

Very cute the four legged friends in a heart of roses. Always enjoy the quotes and naturally the photography as well.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I really like the bucket of flowers, what a beautiful extravagance. Old Benjamin Franklin has a way with words similar to Mark Twain and Will Rogers. Its like a fastball going be when you expected a curve ball.

I hope things are going well Sylvia.

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.
