DODGE BALL - A TRUE UNDER DOG'S STORY

Today I was back in high school substituting for the physical ed teacher. My job was to run security for the first hour and a half, then sit with my class in the bleachers to watch the graduation ceremony. It was simple and sweet, especially since I coached a few students through last year and this.... Sign in to see full entry.

JUST THE WAY I LIKE IT - EVERYONE IS LEARNING!

Counseling Theories professor handed out topics and dates for extra credit work. I picked a partner and committed to writing and performing a duet. The song will be in dialogue style - think "Paradise by the Dashboard Lights" - and will represent (among other things) the Existential therapy profile.... Sign in to see full entry.

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL (HINT: I DIDN'T CRY)

I woke up too early. Then lay and meditated. I got there fifteen minutes before class at 8:00, and got the best parking spot there. I was so excited! I went to the student center area of building #1 where two of my three classes meet; they have a Subway Restaurant! I had my breakfast which I... Sign in to see full entry.

TAPS' DICTUM: DO SOMETHING NEW AND DIFFERENT!

I subscribe to that. Doing something new, however, for most of us is not easily accomplished. Yet looking for something new to do is a very good suggestion. Today is my first day at the Urban Campus. I am full time this summer and am registered for Fall term. Now, I have been going back to school... Sign in to see full entry.

I'M COMPLAINING ABOUT THIS TO THE PROPER AUTHORITIES AT BLOGIT.COM

This is a ridiculous but necessary complaint. There are people all over the globe getting up today and going to work and play. Yet, here I lay, back spasms and all, just because I didn't wait and ask for help unloading the new mower. There are fourth grade students in the local elementary school who...

MORE ABOUT DADDY

His nickname in town was "honest John". People would ask him to take their case, even when he told them that he would most likely get them more jail time. He wouldn't lie or cheat. And that's no way for a small town lawyer to make a lìving. He made the front page of the Des Moines Register twice.... Sign in to see full entry.

MY REWARD

I woke up to the dog barking and tried to get out of bed. He was still barking a few minutes later and I was still trying to get up. I did a few stretching exercises and got some control. I went out with Leo and set my lawn chair where the sun was peeking through the trees. Leo and I shared the back... Sign in to see full entry.

OVERDID IT AGAIN :(

I returned my library book, made a bank stop to fix the new premium on my monthly health insurance bill payer, got a roast beef on pumpernickel and a meatloaf from the deli by the bank, walked two miles with Leo, bought a lawn mower (during which time Leo attacked the meatloaf), mowed the lawn, went...

COMPLAINTS!

Today I bought my books for summer school. I guess I'm about the oldest man on campus. But I don't care. A job in chemical dependency therapy would be a better job for me in my golden years than herding cats in middle school. I went straight to Pizza Hut, ordered lunch and began to read in my...

WHAT 3 WORLD EVENTS OCCURRED IN 1492?

In response to a blog post today I got to thinking about my 6th grade teacher, Sister Carolyn Mary. She was one of those fine old dedicated teachers who would dig through the warehouse, or basements of churches and cathedrals to find interesting sets of books and tapes for us to study. For example,... Sign in to see full entry.
