Cover of the Social Studies Text from 1954

I’ve moved this book four times myself. I have been thinking about cutting it up and making art from the pages, but before I do that, I think that I should read it in its entirety. It was probably 1982 when I took it home from my school; so by then, it was really old and dated. The cover is pretty faded, but you can see well the radio tower, low mountains, forest, river and the boy on his painted pony accompanied by a sheltie. The cover could be depicting my home state of Colorado, but I suppose that it could be West Virginia. I note that there are cars and also an airplane which are prominent–as well as a European American boy. I initially wondered if the text would champion machines as progress and have a white-only story.

I'm 45, and doing much better to keep my life in balance. I will probably be raising an only child--my son--so as a result of various experiences over the years, I have decided to adopt a dog. My son, who has been asking for a little sister or a dog for years made her adoption easier, so I will try to pretend that we know what do do with Storm. I don't keep up with her blog too much, but I know that I should write more, because like exercise, it always helps me. We also have Wicket, a chihuahua terrier who runs the house and three cats, Twig, Zephyr, and our newest addition Obsidian. I guess you could say it's an animal house--less the frat lifestyle. I love them and am encouraged to see how they interact and enjoy each other. I completed my doctorate in the fall of 2014 and teach Adjunct at two universities while working the day job. I've also taught four classes on-line and have enjoyed five-years of work as a Professor. I used to blog about my personal life, but found that I would rather tell narratives with respect to animals. I hope that you enjoy reading some of our day to day stuff. Writing helps me in more ways than I can count. Thank you for stopping by my site.
