Sky Watch Friday!

Time to celebrate those beautiful skies from all over the world!!  Join us and share your skies with us today!! Right now our skies are mostly gray and grumpy - which isn't uncommon for mid-Fall!  But, if you keep watch you can be surprised now and then -- and I was!!
A setting sun still whispers a promise for tomorrow. ~Jeb Dickerson,

Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise. ~George Washington Carver

Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes — every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man. ~Orison Swett Marden

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.
