Yesterday my students were working on a Journal called Camp Learned A Lot. On one of the pages they had to write the funniest thing that happened this year in 1st grade. Rewind to about three weeks ago. We were up to our necks in an art project. I, apparently, was at least up to my backside in an art project. I leaned against a table (or maybe I sat on it) and when I got up I had a glue stick stuck to my backside. A usually very loud little girl just walked up behind me, took it off my backside and said (all the while trying to hold back hysterical laughter), "Uh, Mrs. W, you had this stuck to your butt!"
Fast forward to yesterday while filling out the funniest thing that happened this year: Same little girl comes up and is laughing so hard she has tears in her eyes. She says, "Mrs. W, I just can't get over when you had that glue stick stuck to your butt!" This time she wasn't so quiet when she said it. :) Man, I'm gonna miss these kids!

One of my 3rd grade boys looked up at me this morning and said "I bet you have wrinkles under your makeup"...

Hi there! My name is YENDOR and I live in Alabama, the land of good Looking women and high humidity.
I was a traveling piano picker for about 25 years, a radio jock and then backed into teaching. I taught sixth grade one year and then fifth gradefor twenty-seven years.
My hobbies are computer, collecting old radio shows from the 30's-50's, classic OLD TV shows, Asian horror movies, reading, collecting autographs, and music. My favorite singer/songwriter is Michelle Shocked. If you don't like her you don't like me. My favorite comedian is W.C. Fields. My favorite author is Mark Twain.
I play the piano, bass guitar and drums. I sometimes wish I had done that for a living.
I have a freakish sense of humor and rarely agree with anyone on anything. I love practical jokes and only play them on people I like... which is a short list.
I retired from teaching two years ago and don't miss it a bit. People come up to me all the time and say, "What do you DO all day?" I simply tell them that I retire.
If you are ever in northern Alabama, come by and see me. If you don't drink sweet tea you will be shot at the door. If you put a lemon in it you will be beaten but not shot... the first time.
