 Once again, we've had a little of everything over the past week, from blue, blue skies, to gray, from sunshine to stormy, stormy days and nights with downpours!  Some trees still have their leaves although no longer green and some are stark naked -- already!!

Being president is like being a jackass in a hailstorm. There's nothing to
do but to stand there and take it.  Lyndon Johnson

Bureaucracy gives birth to itself and then expects maternity benefits.
Dale Dauten

Government is a trust, and the officers of the government are trustees. And both the trust and the trustees are created for the benefit of the people.
Henry Clay

If 'pro' is the opposite of 'con' what is the opposite of 'progress'?

Once you leave the womb, conservatives don't care about you until you reach
military age. Then you're just what they're looking for.

The trees are so pretty!

gigihawaii said...

So beautiful, Sylvia! Mahalo for sharing!

Dianne said...

there is something about a bare tree that I find so beautiful
they show their character and shape and look like ancient hands
and the water is so blue
wonderful contrast

Hope sends hugs

Great header shot, I love the colors from your world! :)

Martha Z said...

Beautiful trees, Sylvia, I love the way the light turns the one into gold.
As for the quote you chose to go with it, I am surprised that Paul Harvey ever said anything I could agree with, but then, I'm sure he was thinking of a Democrat led Congress.

Some fantastic shots here as usual, Sylvia. Love the dozens of sails on the horizon and the super crisp orange and red foliage of the autumn leaves. Lyndon Johnson's descriptive take on the presidency made me smile. I think most people have similar moments during turbulent times in life. :)

The views...the trees...fantastic! Hope your week is great!

Carver said...

Wonderful shots and quotes. I love the last quote. I'll have to remember that one.

It is not only the creator of your header who has a tremendous sense of humour, but have also a great sense of humour. And I like your beautifully coloured trees.
Have a wonderful week!

Life Ramblings said...

beautiful colours and your photos never fail to amaze me.

Jack said...

A wonderful series of seasonal photos today, Sylvia. Thanks!

Tracy said...

Goodness, Sylvia, those colors are out of this world; what a stark contrast of yellows, reds and oranges. Thanks so much for the lovliness...

Al said...

Lovely shots, Sylvia. The red and yellow leaves are so vivid, very different from anything we see. It's funny that you're saying some trees have "already" lost their leaves, ours are all long gone. I hope you and Sam have a great week!

lotusleaf said...

Wow! Look at the colours of the leaves! It is like molten gold sprinkled on the trees.

Kay L. Davies said...

Oh my goodness, Sylvia, what amazing color, and I don't mean the trees. I mean the beautiful blue of the ocean! Wonderful!

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.
