You folks are amazing. I look forward to seeing that i have messages. Thanks for you support.

I love my dogs, wife, kids, granddaughter.

I used to teach Math for 28 years then became an administrator.

I have a passion for wrestling. I coached for 25 years, but now I love cars, especially lowriders. (Lowlow64)

I love God, however, I seem to fall off the tracks then I feel horrible about it. I have been clinging to Him now and plan to never get off the tracks again.

Your dogs are very cute! How old are they?

What type of Math did you teach? When I was in school, my best subject with Math was Algebra. :-)

I taught Algebra, Geometry, Algebra Two and College Algebra. I taught at the Junior College level as well for 13 years. I had to have as many jobs that could pay the bills. My wife was a stay at home mom, thank God, until our youngest was in 3rd grade. Then she became a teacher and I could quit the Junior College job. My kids are 38, 31, and 29. They are wonderful people.

What did your wife teach? Before I went into working for Senior Centers, I was a Teacher's Assistant for Learning Disabled Students in Elementary School for 7 years. :-) I've been working with Seniors for 20+ years.

How old is she?

in reply to Activity2004

She is 8! She has GAMT deficiency. Fine when she was born but as soon as she started on protein. Epilepsy! No speech, nappies but swims like a fish and is really a mermaid!🧜🏼‍♀️

How’s your swimming? Tilly has a protein free diet and takes supplements 3 times a day. She communicates by pointing at pictures. They tried her with Makaton sign language. The sign for biscuit clicked instantly!

I don’t swim anymore because I have a CGM system for blood sugars and the receiver has to be in 20ft. so I can get readings. It’s not waterproof. I had done swimming before I started using the system 6 years ago.

😊 Now I can see them both in all of their beauty!

Wow, what interesting and varied career paths you have walked. I love Lowriders, but of the Bike variety! The cars are very impressive too!

Look forward to hearing a lot more from you. x

Thank you. I started building a car, but it is expensive to buy parts and get things done. These cars are old and parts are so accessible, and if you find them, they are pricey, so I have to safe up for them. I even worked at Walmart part-time to save up some money. I only did it for 3 months, it was too hard and i was spreading myself too thin! I do love Pumpkin and Gus! They are the sweetest and most loyal dogs!

I'm sure it is indeed! Doggies are just simply the best! We are without one at the moment, having lost our special little sweetheart last June. I thought we would have another furry friend by now, and have no doubts one will choose us soon, but it is taking me a long time to come to terms with her passing! Both our doggies have been rescues too, and it's not as easy to get to the Animal sanctuaries given the lock downs.

Beautiful dogs And nice to learn a little more about you 😁🐰

I taught English, drama and theatre studies to kids age 11- 18 yrs old and was Head of the Drama Department.I was also responsible for the theatre performances at school. I mainly directed the plays but sometimes I would make the costumes. I loved my job and especially sharing my enthusiasm for theatre with the kids.

Look at those dogs ....could be an exclusive dog walker for you . Maths ...admire you . I just got through the O level with a Grade C .I screamed with delight and all thought I had an A - oh no - it just meant no resit in the 6th form as my school was strict all girls .

Gorgeous Dogs!

I was fine (if a little slow) with Maths at school. When We hit Algebra I hit the wall, I just could not manage equations. I can appreciate it in 3D geometry, but no further, and at 73, I am not about to try again!

I don't want to get too far into religion, but everyone has a crisis in their spiritual life from time to time. I don't know your Denomination, so I can't judge, perhaps you are holding yourself to a very high ideal, or perhaps you feel you have let your faith down in some way. We are all Human, our Gods expect us to fail from time to time. Try to accept that you aren't perfect, nor are any of us.

How about having a chat with your Minister about your fears?

Cheers, Midori

Thank Midori for those kinds words. Yes, I believe guilt is also part of it.

I am a born again Christian. I know people are different in their beliefs, but I do know God loves ALL of us!
