This week -- as I'm still nursing my sun poisoned shoulders -- I decided to take an overview of my wonderful world to share with you today! There's  beautiful Seattle and the Space Needle, breathtaking Puget Sound, the incredible sunsets, four of my wonderful five children -  counting my wonderful daughter-in-law to soon be! I have a hard time getting photos of my oldest daughter in Michigan -- unlike her sister, brothers and mother, none of whom object to having their picture taken, she's usually the one behind the camera -- rarely in front of! But one of these days I'll catch her!! And lastly, there are the fun, delightful things that wonderful friends bring into my life to make me smile and this sign did just that! Have no idea how he did it, but I love it!!  And now some laughter to go with the beauty!!

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

Lol … what a wonderful sign, Sylvia! That would be a great way to capture some interest from a captive audience at one of the many long lineups due to construction projects in our world. Looks like you get a lot of encouragement from your family. The sign would make a nice permanent fixture on your blog. Also, love your new header with little people clinging like leaves to the branches. :)

I also love the photos of your children. They are a good looking crew. I am looking forward to the time you catch your other daughter so we can see her, too.

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.
