To succeed in life, you need two things: ignorance and confidence.
Mark Twain

What a man misses mostly in heaven is company.
Mark Twain

As a young boy, I didn't know a Republican from a Democrat, only in one way:
If some man or bunch of men rode up to the ranch to sit or stay all night,
and my Father set me to watching 'em all the time they was there -- what
they did and what they carried off -- I learned they were Republicans.

Still having to rely on my photo files, not much sun! Guess I can't really complain though -- it may be rainy and dark, but it's not that cold!  Patience, that's what I need and have very little of!!

Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the
small ones.

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, Wren and me.

I hope you enjoy these! Have a wonderful weekend filled with lots of love, laughter and lots of beautiful skies!!

uses in conversation.

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.
