Happy Sunday!!

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.
Kahlil Gibran

Do all things with love.
Og Mandino

And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow. ~G.K. Chesterton
Or trees and flowers! like these!!

Oh the beautiful rhody! All the photos are wonderful, but that one so reminds me of our old Oregon home (or my daughter's). Thanks. Have a great week Sylvia.

Splendid flowers and very fine pictures, Sylvia!

Is it not true that Portland is a particularly beautiful city because of all the rain you get?

That same is true in south Florida. And when it rains here, it becomes something of a paradise, too.

Just don't try to have a parade! :)

But do have a great week ahead!

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.
