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.

Super Moon and a Break

After a week of frustrating issues with technology--computer freeze up, Internet and DSL disconnects especially--I've decided to take a break from blogging until July 1.  By then hope to get these things sorted out, plus taking care of some issues around the homestead that need attention.  To quote Ballykissangel, my favorite Irish TV series:  "Missing you already!" 

Before I sign off though, have you been enjoying the Super Moon these past few days?  I have, and luckily we've had clear skies these past three nights.  Here are my best photos:


Around 3:30 a.m. June 22nd.


Around 9:00 p.m. June 22nd.


Around 1:30 a.m. June 23rd.

Enjoy these first weeks of summer and I'll be seeing you soon.

Beautiful pix! I've got my camera outside warming up so it won't get "steamed" when I try my hand at moon shots tonight.

Enjoy your break, Faye.

And whilst doing your homesteading maintenance, I'll quote from that other Irish TV classic, Father Ted...

Careful now.

Your moon pictures are so much better than any we've taken.

Hope you have a good break and managed to get everything up and running smoothly again.

So sorry you have been having computer problems! Hope that is all sorted out by now. Love your supermoon photos. I took some shots of it with my manual camera and don't have that roll finished yet. Will post any good pics when I finally do. It was beautiful, and I enjoyed it so much!

Hi Faye! Sorry to hear about your techy probs. Sure hope you've got the "bugs" worked out! That can be totally frustrating.

Anyway, you got some great shots of the super moon! It was absolutely amazing!
