Our World!!


Welcome to Our World!!  It’s quite a different world for many of us “old gals/guys” as my 93 year friend showed me with the photos she sent me over the weekend.  As I looked at them I wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry!!!  I guess of lot of us would do a little of both!!  But I decided to share these glimpses of Our World today anyway!!  Have a great week!!





And these are a sample of some of Our Worlds today!!  Have a great week!!

...They raised a smile - but sadness too because they are so true! Here's to an unplugged week... (says she from her favourite tablet toy...&*>) YAM xx

Perhaps I should reblog this one - or like it on Facebook? :-)

Have a nice week?

Oh boy … is this not the truth? I see variations on that last picture everywhere. I guess bloggers are no different, except that we often are at home sitting in chairs looking into computer screens. We are, indeed, chained to technology while, at the same time, free to access the whole world.

Funny but these make me rather melancholic...it seems we are missing out on some of life's joys what all these gadgets taking up our attention.

Stuff like that drives me crazy and I am just as guilty as anyone else!

That second one, with the tan lines, is hysterical!

We had to devote a whole cupboard in our little camper van to electronics, chargers, cords eye. Camping used to be simpler, as did life I guess. But isn't it fun to have all of it?

I do feel bad for little kids who don't know how to play!

I am literally rolling with the one of the tan lines.

And the kids outdoors...yep. Everywhere you look these days, the cellphone is attached...like a 6th/7th digit on our hands.

So funny and sad at the same time Sylvia.. I'm so happy we didn't have 'technology' when I was that age :)

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.
