I am a retired teacher of grades Pre-K- 3rd, wrote a textbook for beginning readers, give art and reading lessons as a community service, and the art lessons to guests who are interested and English pronunciation and reading to foreign guests who would like to improve their accent. I live with a well behaved, lovable English Pointer. I like to read and garden, and am interested in history and Bible studies. Since I always worked in a bi-lingual classroom, I speak a little Spanish, enough to make myself understood. I don't watch television, except for a little news, but I do have streaming video and every evening watch a black and white movie from the 1930s-1950s available on Amazon Prime. I can't live without quiet, greenery, books, my family, pets, and a good movie. I treat my guests like I do my family members. I look after them making sure that they have everything they need before starting off for their day, things like: beach blanket, ice chest and packs, picnic basket, umbrella, snacks for the road, art supplies for children, jacket,sun hat, seat cushion, and anything I have that might make their day more comfortable. My life motto is: You can't do what you can't do; but you can do what you can do.
