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.

Gorgeous photo.

I think orange is such a warm happy colour. I worked with a girl years ago who was terrified of anything orange, it must have been awful!

Lois Evensen said...

Georgia Girls said...

Perfect quote for a beautiful view. Isn't it amazing that if we painted the real colors of a sunset -- they would somehow look unbelievable?

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Beautiful ORANGE, Faye... But--when I think of orange, I think of my Tennessee Vols... They say that we here in Tennessee have blood that turns orange!!!!! ha
