Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

A taste for irony has kept more hearts from breaking than a sense of humor, for it takes irony to appreciate the joke which is on oneself.
Jessamyn West
A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.
Henry Ward Beecher

A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere.
Joyce A. Myers

Believe you can and you're halfway there.
Theodore Roosevelt

Great pics as expected Sylvia and some great quotes about the value of irony and a sense of humor.

There are two types of people I don't understand, those who don't like dogs and those who don't have a sense of humor. Their lives seem so sterile in general. Of course I should be more understanding of the stuffed shirts among us.

I hope that you are doing OK Sylvia. Springtime is roaring into town here in Oklahoma.

Wonderful, Sylvia. The #2 pencil quotation sure applies to my kid brother, who had a dream to go with his pencil, and he has seen it come true.

Homesick! Seriously. (But laughing at myself about it ;>)

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.
