Long story short, there WAS free city-based wifi at home for a while, but the connection was not fast enough to permit me to work on this webpage at any reasonable speed. About a month ago, the signal faded and has not been reliable. And when one does not have the internet around to be used to, one's thoughts about internet-based activities tend to vanish as well.
I am down in Grants Pass visiting grandparents right now, and it seemed like an opportune time to take a couple minutes and announce that I am not gone, just kind of incommunicado. I am registered in Coos Bay on the district sub list and have worked two days so far this year while the choir director was out ill. I am still in the process of looking for more employment to supplement the substituting without getting in the way of it.
Anyway. I hope you are all well! and that everyone had a wonderful summer. Thanks again to all my students and their families for making last year such a memorable, wonderful year!
