The Window Through Which We Look !

A young couple moves into a new neighborhood.
The next morning while they are eating breakfast,
The young woman sees her neighbor hanging the Wash outside.
"That laundry is not very clean", she said.
"She doesn't know how to wash correctly.
Perhaps she needs better laundry soap."
Her husband looked on, but remained silent.
Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry,
The young woman would make the same comments.

About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a
Nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband:

"Look, she has learned how to wash correctly.
I wonder who taught her this."

The husband said, "I got up early this morning and
Cleaned our windows."

And so it is with life. What we see when watching others
Depends on the purity of the window through which we look!*
I hope each of you has a beautiful day and that you always look and are seen through clean windows.

If you don't understand this now, you will in a few years . . ..

When asked by a young patrol officer, "Do you know you were speeding?", 
this 83-year-old woman talked herself out of a ticket by responding:  
"Yes, but I had to get there before I forgot where the hell I was going."

I'll take your weather over ours this year, Sylvia. I've never seen it so dry and dangerous. I don't know if my office building is still there - apparently 35 homes burned on its street.

I have a feeling if I could see (thank goodness I can't)my neighbors washing through my kitchen window it would possibly be the same thing! J'adore the second story, how long before it applies to me is questionable haha!!

A lesson there.

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.
