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 - Goodbye New England Gardens


What do you think? Did I save the best New England garden fence for last? For the month of February I've been sharing photos from a May '99 garden tour of New England states--Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont. Here you have a combo of stone walls, sturdy fence, and promise of voluptuous roses tumbling all over.

Stay tuned here for the fences of Ireland in March when all of us turn a little bit Irish. In the meantime, be sure to stop by host Janis' place for more Friday Fences: Life According to Jan and Jer .
