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!  This was the sunset two nights ago after a gray and grumpy day. I glanced out my window and this is what had happened to the skies in just a few minutes! It was awesome! I hope you enjoy these! Have a wonderful weekend filled with lots of love, laughter and lots of beautiful skies!!

The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

I thought I had a good window at work, it doesn't hold a candle to your window at all.

I love those skies.

Happy Skywatching Sylvia. It's raining and wind is howling outside right now. It's Oklahoma, if the wind stopped blowing the trees and people would all fall down.

I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter. I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. Her picture below is stunning.

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.
