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.

Here are some "people" shots from my trip to Arizona. First, the gang - clockwise from Dale the token male, me, Mary Rose, Suzanne, Cheryl, Lin. Then we have Suzanne with Lin, me with Lin, me out in the desert in front of Dale's place, and me playing with the cactus. :D Suzanne taught me a lot about cactus - like the jumping one. I walked near one and she almost freaked out! :D

Hi Leslie!

Hi Leslie,
I'm so envious that you all got
to have such a great get
together in my favorite state,
AZ!! And dine on some of Dales
wonderful cuisine...sounds like no electricity
wasn't much of a set back to his culinary wizardry.
FYI: Suz was the best buddy to warn you about
those jumping cholla. I've had the too close,
too personal encounter with those devil cacti!!
They're impossible to extract!!!
And glad she dragged you up through Sedona
and Oak Creek Canyon. I've backpacked all
over that area with the Museum of Az in Flagstaff
A great stop next time you go to AZ. Also I
love the Grand Canyon, have rafted it several
times. And hiked to the bottom on my honey-
moon,now that's LOVe!!!
We also had an amazing animal encounter...
saw a cinnamon bear, a very rare sighting,
as the last one spotted on the south rim
was in th 30's.
Wish I could have joined you guys...but love
the photos!!

Hey Leslie Great photos. I will burn them on a cd so for all the girls that were there and we'll have a memory moment. Heh heh.

I enjoyed your time here so much and hope you were comfortable while staying at my home. I feel like you are my sister and you have just the warmest freindliest personality. Can't wait to meet up with some more new friends next month.

I went out with Dr. Rudi, my little honey and saw him in shorts for the first time. I really think it's a shame that he his prettier than me. LOL - I'm not complaining though. I keep asking him what his secret is in not having any darn fat on him anywhere at 63 and he just grins.

Hugs Suzanne

Hi Suzanne - glad you got the photos. I hear you're going to LA to meet up with Lin again plus Willy, Neva, Tricia, Lois from Dana Pt, etc. Ooooo...I'm SO jealous! Wish I could go, too. But it just isn't the right time. And I can't get any more "discretionary" days. Boo Hoo! Have you heard from Cheryl yet? I really want to see HER photos now. Say Hi to Rudi for me and see if he has a friend? LOL

Hi Leslie, sorry you can't make the Calif get-together but like you said there will be another time. My camera was on the fritz so Laura took all the pictures. I emailed her to contact Suzanne.

Willy is really doing a great job with all the planning for the trip. I will drive down to Paso and we will go the rest of the way together. We originally had planned to spend some time up here in my neighborhood but Ada and Neva will be flying into LA so we will just meet up with them down there.

Next month Nancy from Oregon is coming for a visit, can't wait to see her again, she is such a sweetie.

Talk with you soon.......Lin
