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!
 We're still having unbelievably beautiful, sunny, mild days as we slip further into September! Definitely a beautiful autumn! Sometimes the skies are more clear and the sunsets less dramatic, but every now and then ......
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover .  Mark Twain

I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.   Arthur
Rubinstein

Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it.  Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive.  Howard Thurman

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.    Ralph Waldo Emerson

I remember Klaus. So it's been a year since Klaus passed away? It seems like yesterday when I heard the news. For sky watchers he is always remembered.

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.
