Happy Weekend!! Enjoy!!

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.
Hal Borland

Can Spring Be So Far Away??

Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush. Doug Larson
I really shouldn't whine so much about winter -- it hasn't been that cold, just gray, chill and so dreary!!  And then today the sun came out!!  Hooray!

Hey, Mom, It Snowed -- Again!!!

I like to walk on fresh fallen snow
The kind that whispers and speaks.
It sings a song as I walk along
With crackles and scrunches and squeaks.
Snowmen fall from Heaven, Some assembly required.

I hope all of you have a wonderful, fun weekend !!

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.
