New Breed!!!

A new breed
of young human beings!
They are referred to as
created by natural genetic evolution
through constant spineless posturing,
and spasmatic upper limb gestures,
which new research has shown
to cause shorter legs
and inability to ambulate
other than in an awkward
shuffling gait.

My son, David, liked the camera he gave me for Christmas so much that he got himself the same one!! And here's a photo he took last night of the moon in Dallas!!  Don't expect my shots to be this good for some time!! He's much more talented than I am!  But I had to share this with you! Isn't it awesome!!!

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.
