One Quiet Moment

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.
--John Steinbeck

Wicked Giggles to Get the New Year Moving!!

Okay! I’ve been pretty good and proper for the holidays, but we’re moving into a new year and time to play!!!  And my 95 year old friend sent me this to start off my year with a giggle and a laugh and I’m going to share it with you!! I hope all of you have a great weekend!! 

Things you didn’t know that you didn’t know!!!

Women’s Poem

Before I lay me down to sleep, I pray for a man who’s not a creep.

One who’s handsome, smart and strong, one who loves to listen long.

One who thinks before he speaks, one who calls, not wait for weeks.

Oh, send me a king to make me a queen, a man who loves to cook and clean!

Man’s Poem

I pray for a deaf-mute gymnast nymphomaniac  with big boobs, who owns a bar on a golf course, and loves to send me out to go fishing and drinking.

This doesn’t rhyme and I don’t give a s---!

Have a great new year!!

The sky is that beautiful old parchment in which the sun and the moon keep their diary. ~Alfred Kreymborg

You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds. ~Henry David Thoreau

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. ~Rabindranath Tagore

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.
