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.

Fall Snapshots 2

Fall decorations appearing on porches in Norton Commons, including this cute, slightly over the top door wreath.
 

Goldenrod and punkin'--simple is always good:


Not especially fall, but liked the use of these old wrought iron pieces on brick wall:


Honeycrisp apples on sale at Paul's Market, all the better for their sweet, juicy taste and that they're only available in the fall:


Fresh, field grown bouquets of fall flowers on sale at Paul's:




 And finally a blue, purpley, golden sunrise on one of the cool days last week:

Have a good week and I hope you have time to get out and enjoy this colorful season, camera in hand.
