Me too

I took a couple of classes to keep my certification for another 5 years past retirement.
Seemed like a prudent thing to do. My classes may not have been as much fun as yours, though.

Excellent idea!

I love that you lock yourself out of email for the summer, FUNNYJOKER.
(Unless you don't really, and that was just a funny joke!)

Ha ha! We are all old ladies here (or old gents), so no worries about asking health questions. Medicare is great. It doesn't cover optician visits or eyeglasses, but does cover all dr. visits and for...

Great show!

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
I don't know how much time you have before going, but if you have time, it would be good to listen to the music (and it is all music!) online and read the...

Vote with your feet

Leave. That won't solve the problem for the others, but you don't really have to do that. It is up to the school district officials to get rid of him or to change his behavior. They may be on the way...

Some entertainment for the party?

How about a conga line of friends singing, "The old gray mare is not what she used to be?"
(Because you are all older than she is, it wouldn't be mean.)

This sounds splendid!

The chance to be with family in a leisurely way is such a gift. You earned it with the years of hard work that you put in. So glad you will get to enjoy this.

Those desks!

Photo #6
So regimented! All desks in straight rows facing front.
I do remember it well, but these look positively modern compared to those in our school, which were actually bolted to the floor.

Think positive thoughts

Nice that they are doing this early. Beats getting an interview and job offer in August, and then having to scramble to be ready on time.
You can do this. It can work for you!

I was thinking about contacting the census bureau to inquire about temp work.
Has anyone done this? Advice?

Miss subbing already - it has only been two weeks.
Thinking about contacting the census bureau for temp work. Want to keep busy, and summr paychecks would be nice, too.
Have any of you done this?...

Is that a record?

Bell ringer, that looks like 42 years! Very impressive.
Has anyone here taught longer?
Only 30 1/2 yrs. for me.

Another solution

You have gotten suggestions for lots of products that might suit your needs.

Go early

Go ahead and get there 3 hours early if that is the recommendation. Better to be too early and have a little time to wait for your flight than to be cutting it close, and feel stressed out at the...

We record the show, and watch it later. I fast forward through knife throwing, underwater escapes, etc.
Last night's sledgehammer and coconuts fell into that category. Just zipped by it. Most of the...

They are selling something. The free lunch (or dinner) offer is effective for them because they know that some folks will buy. If your strategy is to eat a free meal and learn the tips they are...

you rock!

Reread your first paragraph. That is the real message. Not often do we get such unsolicited compliments.
Forget everything that comes after. It has to do with bitter feelings about someone else.
