These are some of the things that my granddaughter was telling me that she's studying in school. Another one was Manifest Destiny. I was very encouraged by her reports. Gives me great hope that, at least at the public school she goes to, kids are actually learning something.
BTW, she's 12 and in the 7th grade. I never was exposed to any of that stuff until high school.

"life is but a play whose player's strut and fret their hour upon the stage", "S" or as "T" once said,"most men live lives of quiet desperation".
(hope i got them right)

You ARE old...


I got all that stuff in grade-school here...

Still wondering what I can do with the knowledge I acquired of the 'Basket-Weaving Tribes' of the great plains...I'd rather know how to weld (but they kept telling me not to look)...I should have paid attention when I was a little kid...

You had kindergarten? You really are a young whippersnapper.

Was the first year here in the 'new' central school (1968 I believe), and they thought they were being sooo progressive by offering Kindergarten...

They started kindergarten in my town the year my son started 1st grade so neither of my kids had it. That would have been 1977.

I'm good...

I seem to be a week ahead of the 'garden planting curve' or at least where I normally am on it for this time of year...

Lawns are mowed...Boat is Fish-Killin ready, and I have lost 5 pounds of winter-fat so far...

Life is good...

I used to hate Shakespeare plays in school.The guy who played Shakespreare looked like he wore a pumpkin for britches.But later I studied the books of Shakespeare.He was a wise man.I read that he died around his fiftieth year in life.Too bad. The world lost a lot when he died before his time.

I mean, how long can a guy stroll around in pumpkin pants? I can't even get one leg in! :)
