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.

Kitty Knows

"After reading you blog I couldn't resist sending you this":


My longtime friend Kittyhawk sent this message this afternoon after reading my most recent post, "Listography Q & A". I laughed out loud when I opened the kitty attachment. After revealing that not only do I have years of journals, I also do very self-absorbed exercises like making life event timelines and personal photo collages from childhood to the present. I deserved a good ribbing and who better than a friend to do it!

Yep, you're right Kitty. I am a mess at times. And one of the advantages to blogging is that you can go ahead and reveal some of that in your writing without too much loss of face. Kitty knows and so do your friends, but they accept you anyway.

Writing can be such a release of so many emotions. I can't imagine not doing it anymore.

HaHa..too funny. You know Faye..I think its a great thing that you journal about your life..I think everyone should leave behind a glimpse of themselves for the next generation.

for some reason that made me think of "The Cat Who..." novels. (Braun)

Faye said...

debs--you're right. Best cure for the "monkey chatter" going on in your brain is to write it out.

church lady--only a good friend could get away with telling you the truth. :-)

janis--I'm not sure about the leaving behind, but I guess at that point we would be worrying about the opinions of next generation.

pamela--I'm not familiar with the "Cat Who" novels. Mysteries?

I can't believe KittyHawk didn't call you out for not revealing (Share something you wish your readers would know about you) . . . TA DA! Your Brazilian Wax. (Oh, does it have to be something TRUE? Well, it would certainly give your fans a start if it were!)
