Comments:

I live in Colorado and love it.........it's beautiful here. I love all the seasons and the lack of BUGS! I have been teaching for 25 years and still enjoy it. I am currently teaching part time kindergarten and the kids are adorable. I have three children and two grandchildren. I am called Ya Ya, and not because of the movie, (hated it) but because my grandson couldn't say Mi Mi and it came out Ya Ya. It turns out it is Greek for grandmother...........so there you go........my grandchild is bilingual and gifted.

School Story:

OK, MANY school stories, but one of the funniest was when Johnny Hooper and I decided to skip school to water ski. It was just too crowded on the weekends to ski, so we, more than once, decided to skip school and share Lake Murval between the two of us. Johnny never let anyone drive his boat, (especially girls! ewwwwwww) but since it was, watch me ski all day or take a turn of his own, he LET me drive his boat. The reason he never let anyone (especially girls, ewwww) drive his boat was because the motor for his boat was WAY too big for his boat. (that's all I'm talking about...k?) And if you didn't keep the motor and steering wheel lined up, the boat would flip. Anyway, I greased myself down with baby oil and iodine, and sat on top of the back of the seat to drive his boat. Well, Johnny was skiing and jumping the wake and going WAY out to the sides of the boat...........you know, so far the boat leans over to the right and then the left pulling the boat with it, until one has the feeling the boat is going to tip over.......well, I am so greased up, that when Johnny skiied to the right the boat tilted WAY over, and I slid right off the seat onto the floor of the boat. The steering wheel started spinning around so fast....and all Johnny could see, from his skiing position, was NO ONE WAS DRIVING HIS BOAT. The steering wheel was spinning frantically....and I was on the floor trying to grab it to straighten it out before the boat flipped...............
I made it, but was laughing so hard.... Johnny, was, of course, yards back, in the water watching and hoping his boat would make it and not flip...not sure, but don't think he was laughing........... not sure if he let me drive again after that either.

This fish is dedicated to all the drummers in the Timpson High School Band, it's a juvenile drum fish.

This is my favorite fish right now. He is a Juvenile trunk fish. He is the size of a penny. He just bounces around and rolls like a dice. Too cute.
