ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct.8

I did a little yard work today. The last time I did yard work, I was moving rocks around . Now I have a lot of dead leaves to move around. My yard, I just figured out is about 16 sq. ft.Some math teacher from years ago , must be so happy that I can use math in my every day life. I use math a lot. I have this thing about counting how many steps I am taking while I am walking. I do this more as I get more tired at the end of my walk. I use math a lot in cooking. I hope that I wasn't the kid that whined that when would I ever need algebra when I leave school. I even have to use it for Noodle's medication , which is a liquid with a syringe for accurate dosage.  I tested out of math in college. I did have to take a statistic course. I think I choose the easiest one, Statistics for lovers, or something like that. I also talked myself out of PE, which was a requirement for graduation back then. I figured that taking care of a husband, four kids and getting a degree was physical enough. They must have agreed.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
