Amazing Lips

As a kid, I grew up watch cowboy movies. Somewhere in every movie, the "boys" would settle down around a campfire and some old boy would bring out his harmonica. Who could forget Roy Rogers and his Sons of the Pioneer. Remember "Tumbling Tumbleweeds.Great harmonica. If Roy Rogers were alive today, he'd try to get Buddy Greene and his harmonica.

JAWS Lunch

One of the greatest joys of retirement is the ability to have lunch OUT! All those years of the 30 minute lunch, which sometimes included some "duty" / baby-sitting with teens, have made the idea of a leisurely lunch in a restaurant (no cooking or clean-up) the ideal celebration of freedom. To this end, a group of retired teachers with a connection to John Jay High School, gather once a month to celebrate.

JAWS stands for Jay Articulate Women's Society. Our founder and organizer is Barbara Spaur. She is the "Barbie" woman at the end of the row to the right of the picture. Our goal is to try new and exciting eateries while enjoying old friendships and catching up with one another's news. We were missing several of our regulars, but added two new Jay-ers, Carol Johnson and Leslie Bishop, sitting in Barbara's row. Another of our group had already left before the camera was remembered.

Need to Book

Dijea and Stehle. You will be be in New Zealand during the school holidays. That means we must book early if we are to get the cheap flights and best accommodations. You will be there for two weekends, but you arrive early Friday morning of the first weekend, and you leave Sunday morning of the second. So, you will be tired after the arrival and tired to begin going home. So keep that in mind.

Could leave Friday afternoon or evening. Lizzie would like to join you. If you choose Nelson or Christchurch, she could take off on the Friday. Susan and I probably won't go with you in such a case, especially since you want to go off on your own.

Nothing really to book if you chose the Whaganui trip. Of course, you may have found other things. So let us know. We need to book. Susan is waiting for an answer.

I've tried to make things easier by putting links into my entries. Don't miss them. Spend some time here.

Wish I could...

Those who know me, especially my family, know I love to take pictures. I like to build CD videos to tell a story and have completed some I am proud of. I came across one today I really admire: Texas Everywhere

Timing of pictures and music is really nice. Seeing this makes me wish I'd learned to play the guitar...or piano...or kept my accordian (and practiced). I also wished I'd been bless with some sort of singing ability. The hardest thing for me in creating videos is the music. All I can do is borrow.
