Our World!!

The Rose Festival was at it's best with sunshine and blue skies and I never tire of the gorgeous flowers! It was a little crowded  -- people here do love the rose garden!!   But I was there on Sunday, and while I didn't get as good pics as I would have liked to, it was still a FUN day!

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive. ~Eleonora Duse

Roses are a little bit to much like hard work for my garden, but elsewhere, they look great!

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.
