|Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by Klaus and the Sky Watch team of Klaus, Sandy, Wren and me. Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week! Click on the address under the post title to be taken to the SWF website where you can sign up. I continue to be amazed with the view from my desk almost every evening in one way or another -- if there's anything worth seeing in the skies, particularly in the evening, then it will be visible from my desk! This was a sunset several nights ago over a period of about twenty-five minutes, maybe less, but it was amazing! Also amazing is the insight and wisdom of some people!!|
Economics is extremely useful as a form of employment for economists.
John Kenneth Galbraith
|Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. |
|Circumstances are beyond human control, but our conduct is in our own power. |
|A diplomat is a person who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you actually look forward to the trip. |
|Whenever men take the law into their own hands, the loser is the law. And when the law loses, freedom languishes. |

Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.
HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT the senior citizens who took:The melody out of music,
The pride out of appearance,
The courtesy out of driving,
The romance out of love,
The commitment out of marriage,
The responsibility out of parenthood,
The togetherness out of the family,
The learning out of education,
The service out of patriotism,
The Golden Rule from rulers,
The nativity scene out of cities,
The civility out of behavior,
The refinement out of language,
The dedication out of employment,
The prudence out of spending,
The ambition out of achievement.
And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with others!!YES, I'M A SENIOR CITIZEN!
I'm the life of the party.even if it lasts until 8 p.m.
I'm very good at opening childproof caps.... with a hammer.
I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.
I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a thing you're saying.
I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.
I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.
I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.
Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time of my life!Spread the laughter
Share the cheer
Let's be happy
While we're here.

|Ninety eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hardworking, honest Americans. It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then, we elected them. |
|If 'pro' is the opposite of 'con' what is the opposite of 'progress'? |
|Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys. |
P. J. O'Rourke
|Bureaucracy gives birth to itself and then expects maternity benefits. |
|Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. |
