Happy Autumn Weekend!!

Add cap
We have had some amazingly mild weather for the Thanksgiving weekend!!!  I’m not complaining! It’s made the last minute shopping quick and easy and it’s made getting together to celebrate with family much easier than usual!! And, of course, becoming a grandmother for the first time, I did want to do some serious “Thanking” to the world in general!!
I do hope all you have had a great, long holiday weekend as we get “in gear” for the next BIG One!!
So, just wishing all of you a little beauty for the day/weekend and LOTS of JOY and FUN as well!!

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”

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.
