Thanks for sharing the past with us!!! I taught English for 37 years in public schools in Texas and your articles are the type I tried to get my students to write. There's much we all have to share and thank you for sharing.

I look forward to reading others!

Keeling,
Thirty seven must be the magic number for teaching. But I sure had fun all 37 of them. I think writers must write about things that are near and dear to them, that's all I seem to be able to do, but I do enjoy it.
I'll bet you were a great teacher, and I am sure you hear often from those students who really appreciated all that you taught.
Nice to hear from you, and thank you for your very nice words.

37 indeed! Add me to the list of 37-year teachers (high school and college - English composition and Celtic literature) and Plumbago growers. Bought a plant at Lowe's hardware last summer. It was slow to emerge this year -- showing growth only last week (June 10th), but now has a large bunch of leaves. Can't wait for the blossoms.
