Back Again

Yow! Has it been that long since I posted anything? I went on a cruise along the Inland Waterway, from Charleston to Florida. I still have to post some of the photographs. Then the holidays hit. Once you get out of the habit of posting, it’s hard to get back. Okay, I’m back. No excuses.

I learned a lot, especially about using […]

Traveling Author

I’m in Pearland, Texas, having a wonderful time. I visited Mark Twain School and E.C. Mason School on Friday. Today I was at Passmore School where, again, I had a delightful time. The schools in the Alvin District have some of the best teachers, librarians, and students that I have ever seen. It’s a pleasure […]

Worst Birthday Ever!

Everybody loves a birthday party. So do I. Unfortunately, my birthday last week had to be the worst ever. It started out as an ordinary day. The only thing I had to do was pick up my neighbors, Robert and Brenda, at the airport. They had been in Europe for three weeks. They had a […]
