About Me

I'm Terry's cousin. I've written humor columns, an article about a tragedy in 1940, and a couple on sports. It was such a pleasure when I first discovered that our family circle includes at least one other writer. Terry's writings are interesting, carefully crafted, and full of insights on history, family and nature. There is much here to enjoy and learn from, for both students and us older folks.

I have watched Terry grow since before she was born. She was my first experience in  actually taking care of an infant.  She was the middle child and always very determined as she is today.  Later she was my children's babysitter and then on to high school and college and master's programs.  I watched her get married, have 2 children and now grandchildren that are almost adults.

The children that she has taught through the years have learned much from her.

I admire all that she has done and her strength in doing it.

I wish her well with this site and hope that many of us will check in on it.

Not quite sure what to put here... I am currently a student of Mrs. Palardy, and I wanted to comment on some of her stories/wonder ponder share posts.  I guess I'll update this later!

About Me

Yes, I am older now. But this was my first year in public education, kindergarten, a member of the class that had the first ever oral dose of  Dr. Salk's polio vaccine, and it meant something to us because we knew folks in our neighborhoods with polio. Does anyone else remember it? A little tiny paper Dixie cup formed of conical pleated paper, much like hospital cups used to serve pills to patients today. It was room temperature, very much like tap water, and was tasteless ... but very exciting to us. No needles!

I've known Terry a very long time...:)...I'm very happy to find her writing posted here.  I think "Beyond Old Windows" is a great creative outlet for her, and a great place for us to come reminisce.  I have a background in elementary education, special education, and education administation, but am currently working with adults with disabilities in their homes.  I live in Maine with my two kids, two dogs, and a bird.
