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.

Yes, those webbed feet working away, as they glide atop the water. Your post is very nice.

Great shots of the ducks...they are so much fun to watch and I can just imagine their little webbed feet working away to move them around.

Great quote and pretty photo! Yes, unfortunately my fences have been posted. I have only back yard fencing and if you look at the shot of our grandson letting the dove go, you can see how boring they are. :-) You can also see that I never fully eradicated the weeds. :-) Living with sand in the back yard is very distressing...there's a lot of work we plan to do out there if we stay in this house. Glad you enjoy my fence posts!
