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!
Guilt: the gift that keeps on giving.
Erma Bombeck
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that
matter.   Martin Luther King Jr.
Happiness held is the seed; Happiness shared is the flower.

Beautiful photos, lovely skies, Sylvia. Enjoy the weekend ahead!
Sorry to hear that the May Day demonstrations in Seattle were violent and unruly. I guess there are many more disaffected and desperate people in the USA now and that was their way of reacting against what they see as social injustice. However violence never did anybody any good...

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.
