There is the sky, which is all men's together.



Red sky in the morning, shepherds warning

I woke up and saw the sky so gray call it good mourning.

Sky Watch Friday




Time for Sky Watch and a chance to share the beauty of our skies!!!  And I do hope that most of you have some beautiful skies – as most of you have read my whining about our lousy, wet weather and gray, grumpy skies and I’m certain you don’t want to hear any more!! I don’t blame you!! So, I won’t whine today and just show you some of the beauty that we have most of the time – just NOT NOW!!!
I do hope your new year has had a great start and that you are ready to enjoy a lovely weekend!!

Ah! I do hope so!!!




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.
