- 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 8 - Bad Habits
30 Day Good Photos Challenge Day 8 Subject - Bad Habits
Not following through on projects or, as I like to say, things undone, is a major bad habit of mine. And I have the lists to prove it--guitar lessons, diet, exercise programs, home maintenance and organization, patience, flying lessons. The list goes on, the latest being learning to knit. Last year I bought the yarn and needles, read the how to books and watch demos, signed up for classes at the local knitting shop. So far I can only cast on and off when I'd like to be making beautiful scarves or even this handy dishcloth that my friend finished as her first knitting lesson. Ah well, maybe I'll just say I have ADD!
