I think it's fun to reconnect with people I knew in my growing-up years. I was at a show in May and another vendor was my English teacher from high school (notice that I did not say "my old English teacher.") He makes and sells beautiful dried flower arrangements, and apparently reads my blog. Now I am paranoid about sentence structure and use of commas.
Big shout-out to Mr. Painter and the rest of the Sherando High School faculty as this is the official first day of school. At least you have a short week and long weekend.
