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.

2012 in Review - Favorite Photos

Out of the bazillion or so photos I've taken this year, thought it might be fun to choose a favorite for each month as a way to reflect on how 2012 rolled along. Note: the one I've chosen may not be the best photos I took for that month. I just liked it for one reason or another above all the others.

January - sharp shinned hawks roosted in a tree in my back yard long enough for a photo op.

February - Good Old Dog Willie in his twilight.

March - pink dogwood in bloom

April - Chet, aka Bubbles Riley, 3 mos. old and in his new home on his new sofa

May - Chet the Good Eater after 1 cup of pup food and 2 mini  beggin' strips

June - a soft, natural sunset--straight out of the camera, no fiddling

July - 4th of July fireworks display from my deck

August - Garden 9 on the Historic Louisville Garden Tour

September - Moscow, Russia lights on Moscva River from the Red October Chocolate Factory

October - Bernheim Bridge over Beargrass Creek, Seneca Park, Louisville

November - sunset on the Ohio River, Railroad Bridge connects Louisville and Indiana

December - Olivia M, a thoroughbred beauty, on the Offuit Cole horse farm, Old Frankfort Pike, near Midway, Ky

So, that was an enjoyable way to look back at 2012.  I've enjoyed sharing photos with all of you this year.  Happy New Year friends,  and all the best to you and yours in 2013.
