Your post is a great reminder of what is to come, Sylvia! Sometimes there is a weariness of winter. In your photos it is easy to see an eagerness for spring and all the colors and new life that it brings.:)

Sylvia -- this is just beautiful. We need to come back for Spring sometime. This really makes me homesick. (The trouble with Florida is that if you have no winter, you also have no spring!)

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.
