Time to Say Goodbye

At least for a while. Things here in Portland have become increasingly difficult and I need to deal with things that I've tried to ignore.  I want to thank all of you for the joy and delight that you have brought into my life over the past six years and I will miss you.  I will continue to visit your blogs whenever possible, just won't be able to post anything worthwhile on mine for now!!

Thank you again! Make the most of each and every day and enjoy the moment!!

I sincerely hope, although you are obviously facing some challenges, that there is nothing radically wrong. Sometimes it helps a little to offload your concerns. My email is always there and my shoulders are broad and sometimes I even fired something helpful to say.
Please be well, you have lit up my life through really hard times, Hope I can be a little candle for you.

You know you will be missed ... I always look forward to a good chuckle and a smile when I come to see you. Life has a way of stirring the pot and it is for us to take care of the business. I understand that you need to leave and in doing so, I hope that you will be able to make things right for you and your loved ones. Stay safe and well. No guilt allowed ... we will miss you but we do understand. Until another time Sylvia ...

Hope things work out for the best, and I hope you can keep visiting!

I appreciate your friendship, and kind and encourageing comments through these many years.

Sylvia, you will be missed in the blog world. Your always positive comments and fun posts are something I always look forward to. I hope that things work out. And I will certainly give Socks many pats - he just came in from the fresh snow.

I am going to hope that it is just more frustration with Blogger. Who am I going to pick on while you are away? (Be well.)

I join the chorus, Sylvia, in sadness at not seeing your fun pop up for a while. However you know I shall have you in my daily 'thoughts' that all challenges and issues should resolve well and you might perhaps return to us refreshed and bright as ever.

Love and hugs, YAM xxx

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.
