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 & Lilacs

Lilacs make even the plainest picket fences special when they first bloom in the spring.

For more Friday Fences check out Janis' site at Life According to Jan and Jer .

(Readers-noticed this morning that there's Blogger trouble with commenting here. If you had problems getting a comment to go through, sorry--will try to fix. Regardless, thanks for the visit!)

Oh, that fence is a nice fence...I like it and like the lilac...I love sitting on my back porch and letting the lilac smell over take me.

Lilacs would make a mud hut look lovely! But, it's a very nice fence just the same!

George said...

Hi Faye, Luckily, I wasn't on Blogger this morning. BUT--it wasn't "YOUR" blog. It was many of them from what I'm hearing... Blogger does that at times... Bah!!!!

Beautiful pictures of the lilacs. We don't have any in our yard--but I like them..

YES--the hiking sticks (both of them for each of us) really come in handy. It's like two more legs!!!!

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

I adore lilac. We have a lilac tree in our garden and it's only just starting to bud now. I can't wait for it to be in full bloom.
