- 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 7 - Fruit
30 Day Good Photos Challenge - Day 7 Subject - Fruit
Every year in late July my friend Kittyhawk and I make our annual peach roadtrip to Jackson's Orchard in her hometown Bowling Green, Kentucky. We're after the luscious red-gold freestone varieties like Cresthaven, Redhaven, Blushing anything. In this 2010 photo the back of my Scion xB "bread truck" is filled with summer goodness. We're loaded and ready to make a fast trip home and get deliveries made to friends and family. They ripen by the minute and, for sure, it's a fortunate time of the year to call us friends!
