Winnie is helping me write my first post under a new and expanded program … I can’t thank John enough for troubleshooting the problem for me! And now Winnie wants to leave her ” paw” mark on my advanced current post!
Actually yesterday morning was coat weather… not sweater weather! I had a medical appointment at nine in Charleston and when I got in the car it was 39 degrees! BURR!
It is really starting to look like Halloween -here are some fun examples!
More to come later but am having to learn some new procedures with this new program!
I will be honest… when my blog froze… I did too! The thought of not being able to write sent me reeling. It is such an important part of my life!
The old program lasted over a decade with all those pictures so it did quite well for me!!I am thankful and filled with gratitude!
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.”
Good morning, Becky,
Glad John and you got it all worked out. I can imagine the panic you felt when you couldn’t do what you normally do about your blog. Trust me, we’d miss it/you, also!!
Sometimes I get kind of a panicky feeling when I open my laptop to do something and the screen is totally blank and nothing “comes up.” I got this laptop during my last year of teaching, so it’s at least 11 years old – a long time for a laptop, I know. I just fear the thought of having to buy a new one! Panic time!
Glad you’re enjoying the fall weather. It’s as cold – probably colder – up here and “summer me” is adjusting to it. I finally switched my closet from summer clothes to the more appropriate winter ones. (I’m never happy about doing that!)
It is that old “monitor and adjust”.
So glad you are back…
