My friend, Laurie, and I walk 3 miles 5 mornings a week when I’m not on the road teaching. Early, before dawn.

The dancing granddaughter…
My granddaughter, Elanor, decided (with her mother’s help) to do a happy birthday song and dance for my mom (her great-grandmother). We’ll be seeing this number again at the end-of-year dance recital. She will be more spectacularly dressed then. My son, Christopher, had the thought of putting the movie on Youtube. It’s way easier than I thought it would be!
I’m teaching in the Tampa Bay area and I have to say that the Florida I have seen is really beautiful. It’s very lush. I think that you would have to beat back the vegetation to keep from being grown over!
I flew last Friday (on American) to North Carolina to visit friends. After all of the flight problems I was surprised to get to DFW (Dallas-Fort Worth) and find the place nearly deserted. There was no one in the security line! It was sort of amazing. Lots of personnel, no passengers. I was on the one flight to Raleigh-Durham that made it out on Friday morning. My flight home on Sunday was uneventful as well. These days, that’s all one hopes for.
My son, Jeff, sent me a link to the Free Rice site today. On it you will find a pretty decent vocabulary game that is good for your brain and raises money (in the form of rice) for those in need. The more words you guess correctly, the more rice is donated to the United Nations World Food Program. The money/rice comes from the advertisers on the site.
