My little bit of paradise.
Merry Christmas

This journal is largely restricted to the few people on my read list because I must protect the privacy of some of the people I share this world with. However, if you'd like to read my journal, please email me at Ldygwynedd@aol.com.

Cast of Characters:

Jean -- Me, I'm just past that half-century mark, teacher, wife, mother, friend.
Bill -- My husband of 30+ years and my best friend.
Cassie -- our daughter is a Reading Teacher in Northern Florida. I'm proud of her.
Jonathan -- our son who is also a marvelous teacher. I'm proud of him, too.
Brandon -- Cassie's husband. He's a good man and I am glad to have him in our family. He is in finance.
Keagan -- MY GRANDSON. Keagan made his appearance on January 10th, 2008.
Rowan -- MY GRANDDAUGHTER. Keagan's baby sister arrived on April 26, 2010.
OB -- my dog. Old Bay is a beagle. He's crazy.
My mother is in her 90s and lives in a retirement community not too far from me.

Aside from my colleagues and students these are my recurrent cast of characters in my story.

My dear Cori, our wonderful pit bull terrier, went over the rainbow bridge (a particularly stupid euphanism) on February 26, 2008, at the age of 11 years.
