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.
Earlier this week I showed you some barn quilts in eastern Kentucky for Barn Charm. Since there's several really nice examples, thought I'd stick with the same theme for Friday Fences. I took these photos on a very rainy drive to Pike County to visit my aunt last November. This is a favorite scene from the highway when I'm driving back to eastern Kentucky. Such a well kept farm--two-story white frame house, new barn and fencing, cattle grazing in the field. At Christmas time there'll be a huge lit star on the barn that you can see from the road. And always, the brilliant Bowtie quilt design on the barn.
