I bought a dog! A sheltie of my very own! Her name is Middie. She is going to school with me.
Of course Middie is short for "Woo Hoo Middle School" and I feel SURE that my students will fall in love with Middie, the literary pooch.
She came today and I am so pleased with her appearance. She is life size! Isn't her face adorable? One of the reviews on Amazon said that their own sheltie was afraid of this toy. She is very realistic, a little less so for human eyes.
I'll let you know what the sixth graders think of her.
Quite some time ago, Gumbo Lily told me about Penguin Threads. I love these two editions of favorite books, don't you?
MK asked about The Willows and their progress on their Grand Tour. Well, they got held up at Alison's because she was leaving France for England, so I THINK they have been mailed to Floss (also in France) and she is on holiday with her family. As soon as she returns I'm sure she'll entertain them. After Floss they go to The Provincial Housewife in Australia and then on to The Angel in the Garden in New Zealand. It's been a year and they are still having a wonderful time. I'm supposing that I'll see them around Christmas.
My sister-in-law found my seventh grade class picture in some of her things. Can you find me? Guess which happy camper I am!
The training I had today was fun and I loved seeing some of my pals.
I am VERY thankful for five more days of freedom. I might clean my house. It needs cleaning VERY much.
Thank you for all your comments. You really make my days, friends.
I shall give Middie a pat on the head for you.
Thank you for calling in!
