Go Figure!

My husband, my daughter and I were watching the super bowl game this evening with iOS from the iPad on a huge screen. The screen went out somewhere in the third quarter. I mean blank screen! Nothing- no sound. No picture! We sat there thinking. With our luck, this would be the greatest game in … Continue reading

Sit, Squat Or line?

There are certain topics that polite people do not talk about, but often think and question. One such topic, do I sit, squat or line the toilet seat in public? Whether one admits it or not-everyone has to pee or (God forbid) poop in a public facility.  This occurs much too often to me. I … Continue reading

Bad Teacher!

As a teachers’ teacher, I know how a good teacher should teach. After all, it is my job to teach teachers how to teach.  Well…a young Detroit teacher friend of mine I have watched and often give advice, was scolding her students for picking on each other. When all of a sudden a student yelled … Continue reading

A Bird In The Bush

It is no secret that I love to garden. I do both vegetable and flower gardens. Ever since I was a small child I wanted to watch things grow.  As a city girl this was a dream. But once I got married, I grew things. It started out by planting in our small patio off … Continue reading

The Pitts

Spunky, tiny, outspoken, athletic, and extremely independent, my beautiful daughter loves animals more than people. Nonetheless, most people love her once she allows them to know her. I love how bold she is with who she is. Always makes a statement. With her long, jet black twists blowing in the wind whenever she drives, she … Continue reading

Strike? Ball? Foul? What? Shit!

One would think that at my age I would know all about me.  This is so far from the truth.  Today was a prime example of pure confusion. I was too busy to be lost and too confused to know that I was lost.  I discovered I am not too old to feel like a … Continue reading

Did It Stink?

I had a six grade class this week. They were learning different types of speech and writing-like sequence, cause & effect and description. I was using an example to explain each concept. I told them my kitty defecated in the bathtub. I asked if they could come up with some causes the kitty did that? … Continue reading

Off Center

I was subbing yesterday in a classroom full of high school freshmen. At the end of class, minutes before the bell was to ring, I noticed several girls against the wall with their shirts hiked above their belly buttons. I strolled over there slowly as not to cause addition attention from others in the classroom … Continue reading

When I was three-almost four…

When I woke up mommie said we were in Georgia. I remember (where ever we were), there was nothing but trees. I got out of the car. Mommy took my small hand and held it tight. There were a lot of people here-at least to a three year old. Then it started. I tried to … Continue reading

A Bad Decision For The Right Reason

My son had a football game Saturday three hours away from us.  I woke up early on Saturday. I rolled over and looked at my husband sleeping peacefully.  I checked my watch. It was now or never, I thought. I gently woke my husband. Looking out of the window I said,“You know dear, you may … Continue reading
