Skydiver? Me, too! At least I used to jump. I made nearly 500 jumps but stopped to finish college. I enjoyed reading your whole list and may do it next week.... I'm using a teensy, tiny laptop and keep smashing wrong keys!

Thank you for leaving me a comment!
I tried to imitate your wonderful way of listing....coming nowhere close?!?!
but thank you for the compliment...

Your are surely a great teacher!
I feel encouraged just by those few words...let alone a whole school year in your presence?!?

Happy end of summer...prep for autumn!

oh you are revealing some of those amazing qualities that i feel so happy to have experienced in person. oh and look at that smile, those eyes and the natural talent for theatre you have :) you do look beautiful my dear. but how do you do those pyramid lists? that is an art in itself, you are a queen of language!

You didn't add wonderful, creative and delightful. Maybe that seems a little too into one's self for you to put, but I'll say it loud and clear!
