About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Leslie: THANK YOU FOR THAT!! Made me smile....WHAT A PRECIOUS BABY!! I was thinking about it the other day, and I decided the reason dogs don't live as long as people is that they give love 110% all the time, and they just wear out!! Robbie is a 'studmuffin'!!!
Thanks again..
I will have to post a picture of Missy the Monster Dog, and my two nice Shitzus on my site...If I can ever figure out how to download the digital pics to my computer...:)
Blessings,
CJ

Hello Leslie,

I saw your post on Richard's blog and wanted to answer you on your blog.

So what is your daughter feeding that grandson of yours that he's so strong??? Hope her lip is doing better. Kind of an odd thing for her to explain to her friends, co-workers, etc. Your grandson is such a cutie pie!

I loved the photos of Robbie! Ever since hurricane Katrina I've been hugging my dog a whole lot more. I appreciate his companionship so much. He's 95 pounds of fun and likes to sleep on my bed off and on.

Do you have a photo of me???
hmmm, is it ok to post my email address here so you can send a copy? I'll check back here for your answer soon.

It was fun getting to meet you,
walk with you, and have lunch at MB. I'll look forward to hearing from you....:)

Sincerely,
Lois

Hey Leslie,

Robbie is sooooo cute! Makes me almost want to get another puppy! : ) If I didn't travel so much for work. Just wouldn't be fair. So I will just enjoy other peoples pets! : )

Have fun with Cheryl!

Hi Leslie,
Thanks so much for all of your comments...I am having so much fun with this...Richard has made us feel like teenagers again!
What a coincidence that you were thinking the same as I about being chosen as even one of the 12...I know it's a long shot with all of these georgeous women to choose from but maybe...just maybe,he see's something special in both of us. You called me dollface! that's so cute...I also have a stron liking of Richard and would love to travel with him and get to know him. Like I've said before, maybe we'll click and maybe we won't but we'll have made a new friend in the process...I like him no matter what and I won't be devastated if he doesn't choose me. My life will go on and I'll travel with family or all by myself, but I'd rather have someone to hug and hold hands with and watch the sunsets or ride the gondolas with :D
I better get some sleep now. I usually work 5am-2pm. I work for my brother-in-law so I can make my own hours. I like early mornings. Unfortunately, I also like to stay up late...

willemina said...

Oops, a few mistakes, but I think you know what I mean :D

I also meant to tell you that you can put a date on your blog. Take the same steps as for word verification...you'll see it
Goodnight sparkly toes!

I haven't had time to go to my dashboard to make changes yet. Hopefully, I'll do it on the weekend.

I kept wondering why you looked familiar to me and I think you look a bit like my mother did when she was our age. I can scan a photo of her and you can see! Not that I think of you as my mother! :) There's just that "something" there.

I seem to have been dubbed "angel face" - have you heard anyone refer to me as that? 'Cuz I get it a lot!!! So, to me, you're going to be "doll face." So there :) !!!

Have a great day - I'm off to school now. So - later, doll face.

G'day Leslie,

Where are the pics from your meeting with The Canadian Blogette?

Sounds like the time you spent together was chock full of giggles, eh? :)

Enjoy your time at school today. I am off ....public and bank holiday in Belize. I get to enjoy the blogs a bit and see what everyone else is up to.

Hi Belizegial - CB has the photos on her digital camera. And she's off kayaking somewhere in the Gulf Islands. She'll be back in Montreal next week and will be posting them on her site. So stay tuned. I can hardly wait to see them myself!

willemina said...

Hello Angel Face :)
I would love for you to post a picture of your mother in her younger days! What a compliment to be compared to probably one of the closest people to your heart!

I will check your blog often for updates. Have a great weekend...I will be out of town, going to the King Tut Exhibit in L.A. /Museum of Natural History with my sister.
