About Me

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.

Two Weeks in Winter Photos, Day 8 ~ Scottish Highlander

Spotted this ancient Scottish Highlander at Shaker Village. No, he's not wearing black galoshes and yes, I could hear him clipping grass from over the fence. How thrilling if Colum MacKenzie's wild Highland clansmen had swooped down on a cattle raid about this time! :-)

If you'd like to join me in this challenge, just post your daily winter snapshot for the next two weeks. Leave a comment here and I'll let everyone know you're participating.

Here's the list so far:

I was calling them long horn shaggy cattle. Thanks for sharing the proper name Faye, now all I have to do is remember it..LOL BTW nice shot!
