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.

Friday Fences - Bluegrass Horse Farm

This is a thoroughbred horse farm on an historic turnpike between Lexington and Paris, Kentucky. A confession-the photo was in my archives and I don't know the photographer's name to give the credit to. However, it was so appropriate for this almost Christmas edition of Friday Fences, I just couldn't resist. Hope you enjoy this beautiful photo from Kentucky. For more fences, be sure to visit Janis for the list of players.

Happy Holidays, Everyone

Peace on Earth
