Sky Watch Friday!

Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by  the Sky Watch team of  Sandy and I. And this week as every week, we remember Klaus and know that he joins us in spirit! Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week!  When we do have beautiful skies, they are truly awesome and sometimes I'm just lucky enough to capture them! I hope you enjoy these! Have a wonderful weekend filled with lots of love, laughter and lots of beautiful skies!!
April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.
William Shakespeare
Walk lightly in the spring; Mother Earth is pregnant.
Native American Proverb (Kiowa)
The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.

Last night at Bible Study, a member said, draw the curtain and look out. The sky was a spread or red. She said red sky in the night, a shepherd's delight. Our delight too because it had been raining.

But silly me, I forgot my camera. I wanted to kick myself.

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.
