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.

Watery Wednesday - Winter on Beargrass Creek


These two photos were taken on February 1, a cold and rainy day in Louisville. Both views are of Beargrass Creek which runs through Seneca and Cherokee Parks. The top photo was shot from a bridge so you can see the water running over the creek stones. In the second photo I was at creek level trying to capture as much of the moss-covered rocks along the water's edge as possible. It was not a day for catching reflections on in the water--just a quiet scene in winter. I'll come back here in the spring and show you how lush and green it can be.
