Goodbye to all my friends around town, who I haven’t seen in forever, who I have dreamt of running into in WalMart sometime,

To all my Dad’s ex students, from all the schools that he has substituted at, and from his many classes at  Wilkinson Jr. High, who we are always running into, y’all are so much fun to meet

Goodbye to all the back roads I have ridden down, around here, bumpy, muddy, and twisty as can be,

Goodbye to Pongo, our faithful family dog, who we had for 10 years, and has seen it all, where ever you are now, goodbye

Goodbye to all my team mates from playing volleyball at the YMCA, Most of y’all were so much fun to play with, y’all are great girls, I hope you all make it far in volleyball as I know you all wanted to.

31 Random Facts About Me #28

Random Fact #28: I used to absolutely hate swimming. My Dad was not the most patient swimming teacher, and as a result I dreaded going to the beach. Every time we would go to the beach, he would take me out to the water and make me swim and if I messed up, well let’s not go there.  Let’s just say it wasn’t the happiest time for me. So that explains why I hated swimming when I was little.

Once I began swimming on my own, I was fin, and I even considered, for a little while, maybe pursuing the local swim team. But I’m not really a very strong swimmer, and I don’t love swimming as much as I love Volleyball.
