Sat down on a bench before teaching, and read this sign — looking forward to our being able to put up something similar at the high school once Project 2 is completed. This is one of the things I’m happiest about working on for the school board — I won’t claim to deserve all the […]

Wouldn’t this be terribly romantic at a wedding? Happy with how it came out — I wouldn’t say it’s absolutely perfect, because there are a few tiny bubbles in it, but I
