Our World!!!

We've had a little sun this week, but it still feels like early March instead of mid June! I did get to go to one of my favorite places, the City Park in Bellevue and it is as delightful as ever! Hope you enjoy the visit!



Anything you're good at contributes to happiness.

There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.

Don't go through life, grow through life.

Forgiveness is the economy of the heart... forgiveness saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits.

OMG is there nothing you can’t do, Sylvia! I am very impressed with the header where you are being crowned. Also, enjoyed the quote from Hannah More because forgiveness can be difficult to achieve but so well worth it in the end.

That is indeed an attractive park in the middle of a large city. Hopefully you'll get more sun this week, I'm sure Sam would love to run around in some sunshine. Have a great week!

Hi there - I like the stone statues. They have a good texture.

Yes, the beach was cold, but that’s why some wise soul invented gloves and hats!

Cheers - Stewart M

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.
