Just had my 70th birthday, and still only have very few gray hairs (in fact all 4 of my children have more than I do - how about that)!

Spent 36 years in the business world. This year we added triplets to our brood of grand children, so now I have 13 grand-children; 3 great grand children, and of course children - numbering five!

Love traveling; art, music, photography, poetry, basketball, baseball, hockey, chess, playing hearts - bridge, and love playing Keno at the casino! Active and enjoy life; love the past 65, why not make it 65 more!

I've taken a few pictures of where I live; places we've been visiting. You can see that (and hear some lovely music) at

To see more of my family pictures and listen to some more delightful music, you can visit:

    Hi Diane,
    I have been ill also and took time off summer and hubby and I moved to the country city as where we were it was getting scary wit the bears coming out and the deer Butts. So I read it has been some time for you away.

    Glad your back. Beautiful family you have a grandchildren.

    My Grandchildren have grown. No babies know more.

    lets keep in touch.

    Two older gals from way back going to get extra more energy. Sorry to hear of your hubby not well.

    Loves to you and him. Beesparkle

    Hi Diane, So glad that you are back to sparks, I'm so sorry that you and your hubby have been sick. It is always hard when we both go down, and we have a difficult time taking care of each other. Sure hope your both on the mend and will battle those things. Hope that you can keep your immune system going strong with winter coming. It was wonderful to hear from you and such a nice surprise. So sorry about all those death in your family. It does hit us hard especially when it is unexpected and even when we are expecting it doesn't make it any easier. Please take care of yourselves. We really missed not seeing your sweet messages. Hugs from Ca. emoticon

    I goofed up -- my eyeglasses are SO BAD (I guess) that I tried to thank a young lady for her comment, so I hit 'comment' and wrote my reply. Apparently I didn't see the WHOLE statement that said 'report inappropriate comment' (I only saw the word 'comment', and not that clearly either).

    I feel so bad because I thought I was replying to HER, and up pops this statement that Spark would take care of the comment (or something like that). I hope they read my reply because then they'll realize I wasn't reporting anyone but thanking them.

    I've been planning on getting my reading glasses updated -- now for SURE, I will get this done.

    Not much new to put on my wall. I can't remember if I wrote that my son and his wife had triplets. My other son was sadly surprised with a request for divorce 'out of the blue', so we're all pitching in to help him adjust to this sad surprise. My grandson nearly died in April from a diabetic attack (he had no idea he had diabetes), so he's on a new routine and adjusting well (we're just glad he had good doctors to save his life).

    Planning a road trip to see family; finishing up trying to get my thyroid adjusted since they've been overdosing me and I've felt so terrible I've spent most of my time in bed since February when they changed the dosage.

    Guess that's about it -- when you're retired, there's not as much to talk about as when you're a busy working mom like I was for so many years.

    Now it's time to post this and do a bit of reading...

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving encouragement. I love the picture of your granddaughter trying the strawberry. I have a similar baby photo of my son with a lime wedge. emoticon
