Sky Watch!!

Time to share the beauty and wonder of our skies!! We’ve had such a variety lately – beautiful blue skies, only a few puffy white clouds and lots of sunshine!! And then a surprise!! The sun goes down and the skies go wild with incredible colors and cloud formations!! You wonder if a big storm is on its way!!  But no, as the night moves in , the skies seem to decide it’s more fun to play in the sky and leave the storm for another day and the colors and clouds move on to “spook” other areas before bedtime!!

They do put on a great show, don’t they!!! Hope all of you have a wonderful and beautiful weekend!!

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.
