Welcome to Sky Watch!! Time to share and enjoy the beauty of our skies!! As I’ve written earlier, we are having amazingly beautiful, but hot weather here in Portland these days and nothing but clear, clear blue skies!! I’m not complaining, but let’s face it – all blue? No clouds? No colors? Beautiful but dull!! So, back to the files and some wonderful fluffy clouds for the day!!  Hope all of you are ready for a great weekend – regardless of the weather and skies!! Enjoy!!

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.
