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.

Y is for YOU CAN'T HURRY LOVE

Click on the video to listen as you peruse the rest of my post about the upcoming Round 15 of ABC Wednesday.  The letter Y is always a hard one to think of something original so I decided to just put up the song "You Can't Hurry Love" which is sort of my personal anthem.  After all, it took several decades for Lorne and me to get married.  We met in 1969 and finally tied the knot on May 1, 2014!  In our case, we sure didn't hurry!  Yowzers
Only this week and next before we start another round of ABC Wednesday.  I hope you are still enjoying the experience, especially those of you who are new to it.  I've been participating since the letter B in Round 2, which makes 6 1/2 years!  It might seem like a long time for some, but I find it exhilarating to come up with something creative each week that can combine my writing and photography.  Plus, I've met many new friends through this medium and have even met Denise Nesbitt, the creator of ABCW, having been her guest at her home in North Yorkshire where she served tea and scones and gave us some eggs fresh from her hens!  I feel as though I know Roger well, too, having emailed with him over the past few years since he's been administrating the site.  For the next round (15), we have a new logo, designed specifically for ABCW by Troy.  Read Roger's intro to find out more about this logo:
So be sure to spread the news of this fabulous and popular hangout!  And if you are in the least bit curious about becoming a "team member," just contact Roger at the above link, and he'll get you set up.  It would probably take 15 - 30 minutes a week to visit about 10 contributors and leave a brief comment.  And as I mentioned, you'll get to know lots more people (if you want) and during your world travels (LOL) it'll be fun to visit with them. 
 
Maybe "you can't hurry love," but be sure to hurry over to Roger to sign up as a team member, hurry to yak with your friends about ABCW, and hurry to think of some ideas to share with us all during Round 15.

I do love all the friends I have made over the last 7 years of doing ABC Wednesday.
This challenge does cause one to look at the world and every day events in a whole new way.
Thanks for being an ABC team member.

Now we're on the subject, when I saw your wedding pics, have to admit that I didn't understand that part:) As a teacher you made 100reds of decisions every day in your job - how can you be uncertain for 40 years about a person? But you don't have to get into it - it's more of a rhetorical question - I will still sleep at night:):)

Love that song. Brings back lots of good memories of days gone by...

Joy said...

Yes that song is perfect for you both. I'm impressed that you remembered the round of ABC when you joined. I could remember what I posted (C for Compass) but the time frame was rather hazy. Having now looked it up it was Round 4, boy how time goes.
BTW, not a rain cloud in sight in the Lake District this week, LOL.

I've always loved that song! Great post for Y week. It gets harder and harder towards the end of the alphabet, doesn't it? I did a variation of YOU as well. Hope you're having a great week!

You may have taken your time the second time around but you made the right decision the second time around, I too loved all the Tamla Motown sounds, very popular when I was a teenager.
Thanks to you,I eventually joined in abcw, and I'm really enjoying it, does keep me away a little from my scrabble though !
Say hello to Lorne for me and give Princess Tegan a tickle, love to you too....Di..xxx
Btw just booked a holiday on the Llyn Peninsula for early September.xxxx
