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 led of Yogi, Sandy and Sylvia. 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!  http://skyley.blogspot.com/   

And no matter how often you look up, the skies are always beautiful , but never the same!!!

I can take a bit of moving break as the apartment they're hoping to get for me will not be ready for another month. So, I can get back to "playing" for a little while! We have had a few really beautiful skies/sunsets recently and here is a sample!! Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend, filled with all the fun things!

There are two things to aim at in life:  first, to get what you want; and after that, to enjoy it.  Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.  Logan Pearsall Smith

We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.   William Ewart Gladstone

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.   Seymour Miller & Jill Jack

One Quiet Moment

A good time to laugh is any time you can.    Linda Ellerbee

Thoughts for Wednesday!

My inconclusive travel plans for 2013

I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport, you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my partner, work and politicians who affect my life.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

I may have been in Continent, but I must’ve been sleeping while traveling through. It's an age thing.

One Quiet Moment

Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.  Victor Hugo

European Truck Artisits!!

Here are 5 pictures of European trucks whose trailers are decorated to look like the sides are missing and the products they are hauling are painted on the sides and back. The first one is of a bottle of beer and looks so real, like it is coming out the side of the trailer..

The second is of canvas tote bag.
The third is of Pepsi cases and they are all stacked on the ceiling, and the bottom of the trailer is empty.
The fourth is of another truck with the windshield facing the back and there has been a driver painted in the driver's seat looking back over his shoulder to appear like he is driving backwards. (Now this one is just plain scary, even when the German reads 'On the wrong way?')
The fifth one is of an aquarium with fish swimming in it.

One Quiet Moment

The happiest people don't worry too much about whether life is fair or not, they just get on with it.  Andrew Matthews

Smart Farmer!!!

For all of us who think that there are too many rules or would just like a chuckle.
A Minnesota farmer was denied a permit to build a horse shelter.
So he built a giant table & chairs, doesn't require a permit.

One Quiet Moment

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in 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.
