C.O.W. Jumped Over the Fence
Can I just jump right back in here after my absence and be a C.O.W. for a minute? (That's Cranky Old Woman, in case you're wondering.) There was just a story on the local news about whether cursive writing should be taught any more in schools. Well, color me old fashioned and backwards, but nothing ticks me off worse than to see someone in high school, college or beyond struggle to write something a fourth grader should have mastered!!! Are you impressed by a sharply dressed and coiffed executive who can't write their name legibly or put together an intelligent sentence? Me neither. Being computer literate and proficient is not enough. This is not an either/or situation, people. Success requires both "real" writing (as we used to call it in second grade) and computer savvy. Don't even get me started on people who don't read beyond grade school level and think they're all educated. Okay, the C.O.W. will jump back over the fence and go on about her business now.
Hoping to have several of these blooms this year.
I'll be back shortly with much better vibes, I promise. Y'all take care.
