Please forgive me for not visiting your blog today. It's a sad day for me as I lost my best friend, Sam Schnauzer, today.  He was not recovering from the injuries received when another dog attacked him and I had to have him put to sleep.

One Quiet Moment

I discovered I always have choices and sometimes it's only a choice of attitude.

So How's Your Day Going???

I had this scheduled a couple of days ago -- before the latest tragedy, and perhaps I should have posted something less silly, but in spite of everything these days, we can't forget to smile, to find SOMETHING that we can smile about -- even if it's a silly cat or a group of silly cats. If we get to a point where we can find nothing to make us smile even a little, then what hope do we have??

is how I heard YOUR day was going....

you had trouble getting out of bed


had a stiff neck


new diet really doesn't seem to be working out


pulled a muscle when you tried to exercise


keep losing things


got caught in the rain at lunchtime


the lunch you had didn't seem to agree with you


feel trapped


guests showed up at dinnertime


top of that you think you're coming down with

the flu


finally, you're alone in the house at night when

you think you hear a noise in the basement



for the Day


every stressful
situation like a
If you can't eat it or play with
Just pee on it and walk away.



Have a fabulous

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.
