Why Not

Why not catch a bloom?

"Why not?" is a slogan for an interesting life.
Mason Cooley
and a busy summer at hand!

Why not grab your pole?

"He who has a why to live
can bear with 
almost any how."
Friedrich Nietzsche

Why not share the coolest water tower ever?
And watch their reactions.

Why not enjoy your summer
with jest and gusto
before the winds of winter blow in, right?

"No one is useless
in this world who lightens
the burden of another."
Charles Dickens

Why not stay out after dark?

Why not live by those words!

Why not,
"Join the caravan of those who have
turned their faces to the sun."

"Might even raise just a little sand"
(Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child)
and shape it into Yogi Bear!

"When the power of love,
overcomes the love of power;
There will be peace."
Jimi Hendrix

Excuse me while I kiss the sky!"
Jimi Hendrix

Why are babies born?
Why not I ask?
"A baby is born with a need to love
and never outgrows it."
Frank A. Clark

Karina with her brother Jack 7 years ago!

On Monday she turned 7!

"If you can find a path with no obstacles
it probably doesn't lead anywhere."
Frank A. Clark

Why not climb that mountain?

"We climb mountains so that we may see the world;
not so the world may see us."
David McCullough 

Another fun trip to our favorite Yogi Bear in Wisconsin!
It's the why we love our lives!

Hello Karen, it is so nice so see your smiling faces and cute grandchildren. They must be a joy to spend time with. The photo of Jack with his baby sister Karina is adorable. & seven years has gone by quickly. Happy Birthday to Karnina. Jellystone Park sounds like a great family outing. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!
