Our World


Fall and early winter are always beautiful in the northwest – sometimes a little more or less, but always beautiful. But from year to year you may see amazing differences!  This has been a very mild Fall – here we are in December and we’re still having daytime temps in the40s!! But I’m sure things will change soon enough! But the good thing is that it’s always beautiful!!

If one way be better than another, that you may be sure is Nature’s way. ~Aristotle

There is not a sprig of grass that shoots uninteresting to me. ~Thomas Jefferson


Nature never goes out of style. ~Anonymous

I have unexpected out of town guests and I’m delighted to see them, but will have less time to comment and I do apologize!!

Well, these are three fantastic photos...each very special in what it presents. You could frame and hang all of them. Great job. It must come "naturally" to you! :)

I agree with Lowell Sylvia, three beauties here, it would be impossible to pick a fav.. although the second is pretty spectacular!

These are beautiful photos, but I suspect the Northwest is beautiful any time of the year. We have to gete out there one of these days.

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.
