This is a sort add-on to my previous entry where I reminisce about a trip to Nice, France and show some pics of the apartment we rented and the views from same. I was searching my wretchedly disorganized files for some of the photos of the views and could not find them.....today I came upon several of them and figured that I had better grab them while I had the chance. God knows if I would be lucky enough to find them again....one of these days I MUST get organized.....
These 2 shots were simply views from the balcony and living room windows of the buildings around the square where our apartment was located in the section called Olde Towne. Delightful in every way.
Maverick of a weird, but wonderful family. Have managed to stay alive for an astounding 86+ years kept alive by a passionate interest in many things and a sense of humor.
Have led 2 or 3 separate lives,the first 40 years as a starving artist, ceramist, and graphic designer. At age 40 a matchbook cover that said "Be A Computer Programmer" inspired me to go back to school and emerge as a binary fanatic. Loved my work, had a wonderful 20 year career as programmer and trouble shooter. At the same time I had the chance to meet, befriend and marry Jazz Cornetist Pete Daily,an idol of my youth, whom I had worshipped in my young life. Lost him to cancer after 11 wonderful (and sometimes awful) years. Retired in 1989 and had 20 years of fantastic travel adventures all over the world. Now I crochet afghans, tend my garden, my 3 cats, the neighborhood birds and squirrels, a flock of voracious hummingbirds and assorted wildlife like possums and raccoon families who come nightly to my Porch Buffet. A great life, and it ain't over yet !....(after all, I have just discovered Blogging....)
