Hi,

I don't know if you remember me. I went to Doherty Middle School. I changed my last name from my dad's to my mother's you would know me as "Lee Davis."

Hi Lee,
Of course I remember you! We had such fun with the debate enrichment class. I'm so glad you found me here.
Enjoy the stories and poems - and let me know how you're doing. I have another web page at www.terrycrawfordpalardy.com, and a blog: http://AtQuiltersQuarters.blogspot.com.
I miss Doherty and all that we had there. But I'm living my happily ever after now, and running a quilt shop!

Hi Terry,
That was a beautiful story about Stephen. I have enjoyed all of your stories and hope to read many more.

Thanks, Kay ... I'm sure there are many more to come ... one by one.

Enjoyed the story of Halloween when growing up. I also enjoy the parade of costumes but don't get the crowds like we did in the city.
The Lions Club and Knights of Columbus each do parties here also where all the kids can march in parade and dance to music and games & prizes.
All free for the children to enjoy.

Terry, you are a hidden treasure, for those who love teaching, small towns, and the nuances of language.

Thank you, Karen - I'm glad you found the site, and welcome you to share it with others who might enjoy it. I've had a lot of fun building it, some for my students, some for my family and friends, and some for me. I'd be happy to have you join in whenever you're here - love, Terry

Enjoyed Pledge of Allegiance page. It makes it very meaningful.
I tried some of the signs but my hands don't cooperate as well as they used to.

It helps to see it ... reading the directions, like reading music for the first time, is hard ... but once your hands learn something, they keep it ... I cannot recite my school computer password, but I can type it ... and Mum never read guitar music, but she could play it, and the organ, and the piano, because her fingers and ears worked together ... an amazing talent.
Thanks for reading those long directions, Kay! They were as hard to type!

I'm so glad to find you here and enjoying what I've written ... This may in time spawn a new site, one dedicated to the classroom and one dedicated to the creative side of me ... Right now, though, the one is bolstered by the other, and so far, students are enjoying both ...

Dear Terry, I so much enjoyed your writing about your anniversary and how you relate it to Memorial Day. Your site is a beauty--love the pictures of the flowers, and your very evocative comments about your home and the moon that guides you. Love, Rosalind
