Time to Say Goodby!!

The past few days have finally succeeded in removing all the joy/fun that I have enjoyed through blogging for the past nine years!! The problem is still there and doesn’t seem to want to yield to all of the “fix it’s” that I’ve tried!!! But I do want to tell all of you out there in “Blogland” how much I have enjoyed these years of sharing with you wonderful people from all over the world!!!

I hope all of you continue to enjoy blogging and I will continue to visit your blogs when I can!!
Wishing you a beautiful Spring and glorious Summer!! Enjoy it all – camera in hand, of course!!

Much love to all of you!!

Almost Time for a Day in the Park!!!

The weather is still amazingly mild -- even if it is SO wet!! I've never seen so many plants and flowers blooming this early and that much of this RAINY season I won't complain about!!
But, still no complete fix for my computer, but I’ll do what I can and play on!!!
Wishing all of you a lovely day!!

One Quiet Moment

What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight - it's the size of the fight in the dog.
       - Dwight D. Eisenhower

I’m hoping the size of the fight over my computer problems is big enough to solve the problem!!
Hold good thoughts for me!!

I'm Still Struggling???? Hope to Join You Again Soon!!!

This has been a lousy week to begin with!!! Keep your fingers
crossed for me!!!

Trouble and More Trouble!!!

More computer problems, probably have to get a new one, so I may disappear for a while.  I will miss you!!!  Keep your fingers crossed for me and hold good thoughts!!

One Quiet Moment

There may be peace without joy, and joy without peace, but the two combined make happiness

Our World

I was visiting in Seattle last week and made another visit to one of my favorite places which I’m certain you will recognize!! 
Wishing all of you a great new week and, hopefully, better weather than we’re “enjoying???” here in the Northwest!!

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.
