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.

U is for UNDER and UP

I had no idea what to post for this week's celebration of the letter U.  It took a lot of looking through all my photos to come UP with an idea.  So I'm showing you a video of my photos honouring the words UP and UNDER - you'll see how it works.  In each photo, I am standing UNDER something and looking UP - except in the case of the Burrard Street Bridge in Vancouver, I'm looking across and under it AND the last photo where I'm up in a plane looking out at the clouds over Greenland.

ENJOY!  And have an unbelievable final week of November.  Only a bit over a month until we enter into the year 2018!  Where have the years gone?  Thanks to Melody and her team for continuing to keep ABC Wednesday alive.

Oh...one more thing - when you see the photo of my looking UP at one of the Liver Birds in Liverpool, England, please note that those birds are 18 feet tall with a wing span of 12 feet.  So even though they look small in the photo, just imagine....

Nice words you've chosen...

It was the first time in 55 years that I had to celebrate my birthday being UP and UNDER the influence of a longlasting (5 weeks already) flu ;-)

So much joy for this months last week is not that simple but I'll manage ;-)

Have a ♥-warming ABC-Wednes-day / -week

So many wonders to see by just looking up. My random thought about the measurements of the liver birds was to wonder if they would be the same size as pterodactyls.

A lovely smilebox to counter miserable November (not my favourite month), - thanks for all the wonders that one sees up there....

Flying in and around clouds can be a beautiful experience in a small plane, as long as there aren't too many bumps. I'm a fair weather flyer for the most part and don't like turbulence. - Margy
