I like that little turtle holding on there in the top shot Sylvia, he's going in any minute now you can just tell haha! I so agree with the Rosalind Russell quote, enjoyment and laughing, much more effective than any expensive face creams! Happy weekend Sylvia, enjoy.

Not only must we catch happiness, but recognize it for what it is.
Hope life is bringing you joy, Sylvia.

I like that last photo...an iconic look at Seattle. Do you think Rosalind's quote is true? I dunno. Perhaps I'd better stop before I get into real trouble! :-)

Have a wonderful weekend filled with joy however you get it!

Super quotes as usual, Sylvia. I just love that turtle sunning itself.

Sylvia!

Your turtle....may I buy him from you? I would love the image to order a poster for my classroom.

Happiness is a place to bask in the sun! I think old Ben would be surprised at the number of people today who expect happiness to find them.

Kay said...

I do think a smile makes a woman look prettiest.

Love the turtle, my own story of the one that got away.

HansHB said...

Nice post, perfect for the theme!

Leovi said...

Exquisite pictures, I like poetry emanating from that beautiful sunset. Greeting.

Serline said...

Beautiful sunset view and lovely golden light reflected on the calm water.
Have a lovely weekend!

That turtle is one impressive guy. I think he feels like he is King of the Log. What a fine capture. Your Pacific Northwest sky makes me miss your area all the more, and the last shot makes me think I am seeing double. Great job this week. I am finally back to the blogging world. LR class is over, my back's been acting up, and the trip to my daughter's in MD over T'giving all took their toll. I had to just shut down the computer for a bit, but all is back to normal now. Missed reading your quotes and viewing your pictures. Hope the bad weather is missing you. genie

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.
