“Gone Fishing!” (Nah…Gone “Booking!’)

Dear Reader:

Since this is our 10th Mid-Winter Retreat Edition…I want to remember one small incident from the past few years each day we are here….

Thought I would start with Libby’s famous Press N’Seal (from last year-March 2019) her brilliant idea on how to cover my foot (Remember the six month recovery period from a Mohl’s Surgery gone wrong…infection, infection, infection. Hard to believe this time last year…I was still limping and hopping around.)

More than anything at the last retreat… I wanted to just walk on the beach but was strictly told “No”…couldn’t take a chance with sand getting in the healing wound.

Libby never gave up…Press N’Seal...covered my foot completely and off I went! A friend in need is a friend indeed!


So until tomorrow…There is more than one way to skin a cat…at the end of that same month last year…I was released from six months of tenuous and painful foot procedures. Today, I am happy to announce my new skin completely covers the wound…and I don’t even have a limp. And no pain!

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.”
