Share Your World – 2016 Week 31

What is your favorite part of the town/city you live in.  And what Country do you live?

I like this area, with all the trees (but minus the caterpillars). I love the woods, the winding roads, the way the light filters through the leaves in the summer and fall. I even like the piles of snow in winter.


Often when we are driving home from someplace else, Garry and I are caught off-guard by the pure beauty of where we live. With all the hassle, this is a fine place to be.

This is Uxbridge, Massachusetts, the heart of the Blackstone Valley in New England, U.S.A.

Would you rather wear clown shoes every day or a clown wig every day?

I can barely be persuaded to wear shoes at all. I’m kind of a barefoot or socks gal. As for a clown wig? Last time I wore wigs it was because following cancer, my hair fell out. I think I’ll just take a pass on this one, if you don’t mind.

Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?

Over, if you please. Garry used to tuck in under, but he has bowed to my superior wisdom in this matter.

What do you do to make a living or during the day?  If you are retired what mostly occupies your day? Or if you are a student what are you studying?

I used to be a writer. I started out writing promotions for Doubleday Book Clubs. After moving to Israel, I found myself becoming a technical writer. Which turned out to be a comfortable place for me and I stayed there for more than thirty years.

Summer amidst the maples – yesterday

Now, in my autumnal years, I’m a happy-go-lucky blogger and photographer. I write whatever I like and there’s no boss looking over my shoulder. I take pictures for fun, not profit and own ten times more equipment that I could possible justify. Fortunately, I don’t have to justify it.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Last week sort of sucked, but this week has been (mostly) better. Next week is probably going to be better still since we’ll be visiting friends. Which is always a treat.
