About Me

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.

Friday Fences - very Kentucky

click on collage to get a close look

  This fence surrounds Fleur de lis Farm on the historic Wolf Pen Branch Road in eastern Jefferson County.  The road is narrow, winding, and lined with mature trees.  This fence uses two fencing materials --dry stone and black-painted boards--common in Kentucky.  The fleur de lis is the official symbol for Louisville, recognizing our early connections to France.  And, at the entrance gate to the farm, this is about the cutest mail box I've seen.
