Home is calling

Dear Reader:

I am finally heading home today- I will be so relieved when I pull in my driveway- safe and sound!

What an adventure it has been and as Helen Keller once said ” Life is either an adventure or it is nothing at all.”

My relief hierarchy includes several items.

*Car gets me home ( story behind this comment- share later)

Heat still working on both sides of house

No pipes broken/ no plumbing problems

Un- decorating the Christmas Tree

Throwing the tree out

Taking down the wreaths and table decorations

Going to the store!


Whew! Tuesday is going to be a long day! And I will miss all the family- it will take some time to acclimate again – but I will and life will go on!

Please realize that creating a blog on an IPhone is quite challenging- so if I have not responded lately I hope to get back in the groove with my old trusty desk computer! I have missed ” Oldie Goldie!”

So until tomorrow…There’s no place like home.

“Today is my favorite day.” Winnie the Pooh

I sent Brooke both these pictures and said the girls are already taking charge – hands and mouth in motion. Big brothers don’ t stand a chance talking anymore- ” Chatty Cathie’s.”

Whew! I am


About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”

      No problem…thought I was coming home but kept Eva Cate for Mandy Monday and by the time she and John got home the traffic would have been terrible…plus when I started my car for the first time…it started smoking…turned out to be okay but we first thought a hose had burst….so checked it out and finally left about 10:00 this morning….saw the food when I returned and it is delicious…had a piece of lasagna for lunch and going to finish it for supper! No harm done at all overnight. Too sweet…what a great way to come home! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
