Two Things

One year of teaching second grade, I had a little boy who, every day, would dash into the classroom holding up two skinny fingers saying, “Mrs. Judd, I have TWO things I wanna tell you!”

Well, today I have two things I wanna tell YOU!

First of all, today is my birthday, and I am 79. Reverting to an old childhood practice, beginning tomorrow, if asked my age, I am saying, “I’m going on 80.” To me it just sounds way more impressive than boring old 79!

Second of all, I am announcing that this is my last blog post. Years ago someone said, “Be sure to leave the party while you’re still having fun.” So that is what I am doing.

I began this adventure four years and 342 posts ago. Not sure at the time exactly what the blog would be like, I can look back and see that it has contained the personal, the controversial, sometimes the comical, the unusual, and often the timely or the seasonal. It has been a very satisfying adventure, encouraging me to write, to explore memories and feelings, to pay attention to the world around me.

I thank everyone who has taken the time to read this blog and give special thanks to regular readers and to those who have taken the time to respond, either through blog comments, separate mail,or phone calls. Bless you for encouraging me.

And now, happy trails to all!

What to say? I love my family and friends. I also love kids, cats, and books. Oh, and potato chips and Cheez-its. I am a retired teacher who still loves to be in the classroom, so now I am a substitute teacher.
