About Me

My photo
I am a retired English teacher and department head, the mother of three, grand mother of three, and have been married to the same man for 42 years. I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego. I love being Mom, Aunt Kathy, Nona Kathy, and Teacher. I spend a lot of time in my gardens in the spring and summer, and in the winter I plan what I'm going to plant. I also am an avid reader and photographer.

Currently, we are in Fort Lauderdale. I'm enjoying myself, the turquoise ocean, the pool, Richard Russo's That Old Cape Magic and Baldacci's First Family -- and my dear husband is working hard.

I'll write a legitimate entry after we get home this week -- before my second hand surgery on Thursday. Blessings, Kathy

You know how to have a good time. You've missed an incredible weather day today, but I'm sure you're not complaining :))

Sounds great! Hope the hand surgery goes OK again! You will be an old hand at it this time!

(sorry, couldn't resist it!!)

Your left hand should be easier.

Glad to hear you're having a great time. I'm in PA visiting my mom. I'll be coming back home tomorrow.
