One Quiet Moment

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and
          the stars; you have a right to be here.

One Quiet Moment

Live Every Moment, Laugh Every Day, Love Beyond Words

How About This One to Wind Down Your Week???

Ole Olson is on his deathbed, knows the end is near, and is with his nurse, his wife, his daughter and his two sons.

"So", he says to them, "My oldest son Swen, I want you to take the Minnetonka houses; daughter Lena, take the apartments over in Edina ; son Rasmus, I want you to take the offices over on Hennepin; and Gunhild, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings downtown."

The nurse is just blown away by all this, and as Ole slips away, she says, "Mrs. Olson, your husband must have been such a hardworking man to have accumulated all this property.

Gunhild replies, "Property?...The idiot had a paper route!"

Okay, that's the giggle, now here's the wise thought!

One Quiet Moment and a Smile/Giggle As Well!!

A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all — he's walking on them. ~Leonard Louis Levinson

Have a Beautiful Wednesday!!

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.
