The Wisdom of Twitter

I saw that question on Funny Evil Tweets and thought, how true.  We could use a little realism in fashion and advertising.

Like Fine Wine

Wine improves with age.
The older I get, the more I like it.

With apologies-- it's my birthday and the quote just works!  There are all kinds of new features on Picasa and I have been playing with very ho hum photos.  I have to admit that if I had a bit of artistic talent, I would love to paint.  Picasa is now allowing me to do that without the artistic skill.  Stay tuned.

The View From the Backyard

I believe there is a subtle magnetism in Nature,
which, if we unconsciously yield to it,
will direct us aright.

Working With God

If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, 
I shall feel that I have worked with God.

fight with the windmills
of their own heads.

It Really Will Be Heaven

You think your dogs will not be in heaven?
I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.

Spring Greeting

I love spring anywhere,
but if I could choose
I would always greet it in a garden.

Look into my eyes and hear what I'm not saying,
for my eyes speak louder than my voice ever will.

Life's Paths

No one saves us but ourselves.
No one can and no one may.
We ourselves must walk the path.

Too Long

Childhood is the most beautiful of all life's seasons.

My camera has been gathering dust for too long.  It is time to post again on this blog.  My favorite subject is somewhat bald and drools a lot.  She is a happy little soul.  And she brings a lot of joy to those who love her.  Grandchildren are such a gift; I'm glad we live close enough to enjoy our "gift" regularly.
