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.

F is for FUN


Hi everyone!  I've been having a lot of fun lately watching the Olympics in Sochi and so grateful to the Canadian athletes who have put their all into their performances.  Canada is doing very well this year and are tied for 3rd place with Norway for total points out of all the countries involved.

I wrote about the Olympics last week, so had to try to think of something else that's fun for me at any time.  And I thought "Gee, I haven't posted about Tegan for ages!"  So I'm going to show you a few photos of the fun we have at the doggie parks or at the beach or even at home.  Hope you have fun watching!

Oh, and don't forget to thanks the fantastic Denise, the creator of ABCW, the fabulous Roger, our administrator, and the fun-loving team of assistants.  Without any of them, we wouldn't be so fortunate to have fun here on ABC Wednesday.

Your sweet Tegan has so much personality.
I love his smiles and adoring looks at his Daddy.

Lovely slide show, Leslie! Yes the Canadians were good! The Dutch were not bad either. Yesterday they were second in the amount of medals. All of them are skaters. No skiers as we have no mountains.
Wil, ABCW Team.

Well we all think she's sweet. Dogs seem to be attracted and loathe to let go off large pieces of wood. So funny to watch them.
