My son is reading "Treasure Island" for school so I thought I'd include a RLS quote:
"Marriage is like life in this - that it is a field of battle, and not a bed of roses."
wait, not that one... ;) .....how 'bout this:
"Every heart that has beat strong and cheerfully has left a hopeful impulse behind it in the world, and bettered the tradition of mankind."
Hopefully you won't tire of my Sierra Nevada

It's a wonderful place to go hiking, fishing, and general meandering with a touch of history as well (Bodie ghost town is 'up round the corner'! :)
As I had a nice evening with the kiddies tonite watching the Pixar film, Ratatouille, which was witty and fun, and with a nice message... I find myself sitting here wondering what to talk about. I've been enjoying reading several blogs, including the readers here, and only wish there were more time in the day to absorp it all!! Especially for the visitors here, I absolutely love some of your topics on your blogs, the sharing, the humour, the similarities, the differences of ya'll....it's been a lot of fun meandering, as it were, amongst all of the different places!! So this will be my post tonite...a thanks to all of you for your creativity, gift of words, and willingness to share your thoughts!! :)
