Skywatch Friday Thoughts and More

Memorial Week-end Sunset, Ada, Oklahoma

It is amazing to me, the colors that can be produced in a sunset...or a sunrise for that matter.  Each day is different.  Some are rather mundane, while others are simply spectacular.  At this stage of my life, sunsets often remind me that I am entering the sunset of my career.  Believe me, that is not a bad thing.  I am looking forward to retirement, or semi-retirement, which ever opportunity comes my way.  I am ready to slow down a little and enjoy life.  I am ready to let someone else take the reins and manage seventy-plus staff.  Sunsets can be the signal of the end of one thing, but the promise of a new beginning tomorrow.  I wonder what my tomorrow will bring.  I do know one thing for sure.  "You can't keep a good man down".  Enjoy.



Thank you Lord, for a life that has been much better than I deserve, for a career that has allowed me to travel the country, raise a family, and live in a beautiful part of this world.  Thank you for good health, and wonderful family, and co-workers that I enjoy.  Thank you for the gift of eternal life.

  2. You have been very fortunate, but you also worked very hard for all that you've done and that you have. That's the secret to success. Just my two cents.

    Love the video. As always.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  4. The older I get the more I love looking at sunsets, sunrises, clouds, whatever is up there. I wonder what my last sunset will be like and if I'll still appreciate it.

    I'm not ready to retire yet, but it doesn't seem as far off as it once did.

    Great photo Driller and as always great thoughts to go with it.

  12. I love sunsets also. I love being outdoors and having a glass of wine or a cup of tea with friends or family. Or being at the beach. They are very relaxing me. You took a beautiful picture.
