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.

Quotography - Irish to the End


"Life's too short not to be Irish!" Anon

 "Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal."
on headstone in Ireland

Spotted the resting place for a proud Celtic soul in the Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville.

Great quotes! This shot reminds me a lot of the big cemetery we have here. It could actually have been taken here.

Love it so much! The quote and the photo of the headstone! Reminds me of Ireland!

Thanks for your comments about us spending time with our grandson. We try to do so many things with him and hope they will all mean a lot to him all his life...they sure mean a lot to us!
