A number of years ago, family members and friends encouraged me to take my FB entries and start a blog. I had no idea what a “blog” was but thought, “What the heck? I’m game.”

I’m a retired special education teacher born in upstate NY, spent most of my life in the SF/Bay Area and moved to the Olympic Peninsula of WA in June of 2017, and am currently enjoying retired life with my partner and two (sick), but wacky cats.

Most of my entries are humorous, but on occasion, I’ve been known to comment on more serious topics. I’m honored when people take the time to actually read and comment on my writing, but do not participate in any of the various “blog awards” that people have nominated me for in the past – I’m humbled that some feel I deserve an “award”, but feel these particular “Word Press awards” have strings attached and choose not to participate. But thank you for your consideration. Your visiting my blog and actually reading me is, in essence, my “reward”…..
