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! I just happened to look out the window a couple of evenings ago and what I saw took my breath away! It had been a rather gloomy, dull day sky wise and I hadn't expected to have much of a sunset. As you can see, I was SO wrong! Hope you enjoy!

A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.
Nelson Mandela

My dreams were all my own; I accounted for them to nobody; they were my refuge when annoyed - my dearest pleasure when free.

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.

Be happy. It's one way of being wise.

Sylvia, I'm sorry about the typo in your name. I tried to delete the comment, but still see it. Just in case, I'll mention again that those skies should go down in the "most dramatic" memory book.

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.
