As I've been going through my photos lately I thought I would share some of my favorite places here in Seattle with you today!  The first one is a favorite park of mine, the next is my favorite place to eat -- a wonderful tea shop and the last two are from the awesome Tulip Festival!  Hope all of you have a wonderful week! Enjoy!!

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
Mahatma Gandhi

The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.
Benjamin Franklin

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

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.
