About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills.

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.

Watery Wednesday and Winter Photos, Day 14 - Beargrass Creek



I took these photos of Beargrass Creek that runs through Seneca and Cherokee Parks on a very chilly New Year's Day. These two parks are part of the Olmsted Parks Conservancy, named for Frederick Law Olmsted, said to be the father of American landscape architecture. Olmsted designed our Louisville, Kentucky parks system. There are several bridges spanning Beargrass Creek. This one I thought was particularly beautiful.
