- 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.

Good Photos Challenge Day 4 - Something Green
Subject for Day 4 of the 30 Day Good Photos Challenge - Something Green
Of all the colors in nature, green, it seems to me, has infinite variety. And, all those shades of green complement each other so well. Like this golden lime of this creeping jenny growing among the almost black-green of English ivy.
(Good photos note: I'm still having a bit of a challenge with taking time to focus before shooting as you can see from this somewhat blurred image. Practice! Practice!)
