Sky Watch!!

Summer afternoon . . . summer afternoon - the two most beautiful words in the English language.
                                                                                - Henry James
 
Welcome to Sky Watch!! Join us each week and share the beauty of your skies!!  We've had such wonderful weather that our skies have been a bit dull, plain old blue!! I had to dig in the files for some more colorful ones!! Enjoy!



I go to nature to be  soothed and healed, and to have my senses
      put in order.        
                                                                      - John Burroughs

The fragrance always remains in the hand that gives the rose.

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.
