Gorgeous skies, Sylvia! And I gave Socks several extra pats from you, as he's on my lap right now with his little head resting on my arm. Have a great weekend!

Wow! The gold we see in your pictures must come straight from your heart, Sylvia! The words remind me of an ancient (Chinese?) wish: 'May all your dreams come true. Except for one so you always have something to wish for.'

Sandy Carlson said...

These are magnificent, Sylvia! Every week, you show us yet more shades of gold!

Terrence Weijnschenk said...

Oops. Forgot to wish you a happy 4th of July!

Hi There, Just stopping by to say "Happy 4th of July".... Hope you have an incredible weekend whether you are traveling, with family or friends --or like us, just enjoying being home! We hope to grill a couple of steaks tomorrow. Our weather here is awesome right now...God Bless American --and God Bless YOU.

Gorgeous photos and quotes.. I especially love the coloring in that last one... WOW!!!

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.
