So, you wanna live in the big city?


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that yesterday, I was teachable and learned something. Today, I'm gonna do that again.

that Scott W. is doing just fine in his new life-without-blogging

that I get to vote today; a privilege that I embrace as an American

for the year I taught school (I was 22 years old). I'm sure I learned a whole lot more than the 12-14 year-old kids I taught. They already knew everything.

We only go around once. There's really no time to be afraid. So stop. Try something you've never tried. Teach it. Do it. Risk it.

Hi Dave. I wish I could go to the 6:30 am meeting. That's peak time at my house getting ready for school.

Boy, I would hate to have change lanes in that mess!

Mary Christine said...

That is a lot of lanes!

I wonder what you will learn today. Hope its a happy lesson.

Lou said...

Hug Scott W for me today!!

Syd said...

Where is that city? I am sure that those kids would have learned a lot from you. Tell Scott W. hello!

That picture could have been taken Sunday night in Chattanooga. A tractor trailer rig turned over and and blocked all east bound as well as all west bound for over eight hours.
I believe I broke my record for number of Serenity Prayers. Lucky I knew a back way home. Still took hours instead of minutes to get home.

Patience little jackass.

I remember knowing everything there was to know at the age of 14.
