Introduce yourself to any new visitors, including a bit about how you’re doing Armchair BEA — where you are, what you’re excited about, what you hope will happen this week.The photo above is me with my youngest grandchild in 2008. I like that picture of Cady, at a time when she had become my assistant book reviewer. She would give her opinion of books I gave her to read, like the book And Tango Makes Three, that I posted the day before her eighth birthday. (Click on the title to read Cady's review.) Besides being a grandmother, I'm an ordained minister in the United Methodist Church (retired — click and read about #6), a former bookstore owner (which is why I recommend indies, or independent bookstores), and a friend of a cat named Kiki (who thinks I'm her personal slave, to feed her, brush her, honor and keep her — oh, wait, I think I kind of veered off into the wedding vows).
How do I "armchair"? That's a new verb for me, but I plan to spend Armchair BEA week writing a post a day and visiting other blogs to see what others have written. I'm "sitting pretty" in my armchair, and Cady just today graduated from the fifth grade. It's Cady's day!
"She is an amazing kid......she got several ribbons and a medal.... she got ribbons for being Star Roll, perfect attendance, and participating in the Science Olympiad competition at Chattanooga State (Daisy Elementary rated 6th place out of 24 Hamilton County elementary schools competing), and the medal was the "Presidential Award" which I understand rates higher than Star Roll (which is all A's) and is given to students who make Star Roll and are all around good citizens, etc., sort of thing. Needless to say, I'm very proud of her!"So am I! The photo below is my profile picture, but that is not MY armchair — mine is actually a recliner so I can put my feet up and relax while reading.
