May our hearts and prayers be with the families in Connecticut in the wake of the horrific school shooting there this AM!!
 It looked to me as though the turtles on one side of the pond and the ducks on the other were having a serious meeting -- perhaps about just whose pond it is????
Our ideals are our better selves.

What a great header. Amazing. You do make a good Santa!

The Shakespeare quote: Sorry, can't "love all." Don't even like a lot! Trust a few is good. And the last is the so-called Golden Rule abbreviated--nothing wrong with that.

So, have fun this weekend. You'll be busy getting ready for Xmas eve!

Laura said...

I had to look twice, at first I thought they were resting on the back of an alligator!

Carletta said...

I wonder who won the pond!
Hope they decided to continue to share. Love the reflections in that shot!
Yes, much heartache tonight in our country. We are all affected by this senseless tragedy.

Sylvia...Your turtle reflections are great. One cool shot. Your sky shot absolutely beautiful. Love the new banner. It has to be one of the cutest your friend has done. genie

Sylvia,
Can I download that first shot for my classroom? It is a statement on diversity that no words can make. Love it!

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.
