About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Haa--ppy New Year!

Fun Monday host Peter asks us to share our best cartoon or joke. I got help from Calvin and Hobbes to send best wishes to you all in 2008.



Hint: click on cartoon to enlarge if your eyes are suddenly a year older!

Your blog is getting so technologically sophisticated that I thought the least I could do was include a pic in my own profile. I know you like this holiday, so am sure you'll have a Happy New Year! And I, too, needed to embiggen the cartoon!

I'm late for reading -- I always have to READ ALL of the Fun Monday stuff.

I see you were in good company with the Calvin & Hobbes choices.
