Happy Autumn Weekend!!

Add cap
We have had some amazingly mild weather for the Thanksgiving weekend!!!  I’m not complaining! It’s made the last minute shopping quick and easy and it’s made getting together to celebrate with family much easier than usual!! And, of course, becoming a grandmother for the first time, I did want to do some serious “Thanking” to the world in general!!
I do hope all you have had a great, long holiday weekend as we get “in gear” for the next BIG One!!
So, just wishing all of you a little beauty for the day/weekend and LOTS of JOY and FUN as well!!

It's hard to pick a favorite and glad I don't have to. Three wonderful pictures!

Congratulations on being a Grandmother and such a weekend to become one. We have had nonstop rain so I don't think my brother had a very good time during his visit here but at least we were together.

Hi Sylvia, I just couldn't resist sending you Congratulations! I'm so happy for you! And since we just had an addition to our family, I do know how you feel.

Beautiful trio, Sylvia!

Beautiful pics and we are in our 4th consecutive day of all day rain. Better than all day ice like my fellow Oklahomans further west are expereiencing.

I love that misty fall shot! Congratulations to your whole family on the precious new life.

Hi Sylvia, it's been so long since last I spoke with you.

Congrats on your grandson! How exciting for you and your family!!

We also are having mild Thanksgiving here in the south. It got really cold few weeks ago but today it is raining like in Oregon.
We have one new family member, 4 legged one. She is Bernese Mountain Dog and she is very beautiful!

Miss you, Masako

Beautiful photos, Sylvia - it sounds like a great Thanksgiving. We had cold and grey for the whole long 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.
