(Our first quote from this author . . . since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  I think that these are things that one – hopefully – learns in school.  But, I think it depends on a whole lot of factors.  Some within the student’s control, while others not so much.  But, if this was written, or spoken, as a counter to home schooling, then I am in agreement with this generalization.  There are two small ironies about my introduction to Ms. Williams.  One, is that she bears a resemblance to one of my daughter-in-laws.  This daughter-in-law is 18 years younger than Terry, but the one picture I saw of her is from 2001, which is 13 years ago. And, the second is that she is a native of Utah.  The only thing to stump me in today’s L.A. Times crossword puzzle was:  Utah’s Uinta Mountains.  I should have figured it out, but I kind of misinterpreted a clue for an intersecting word, too.  Oh, well.  I’m human.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  There were cuter school/classroom pictures available, but they’re all owned by Getty.  If things like this continue we are all going to have to pay to use the internet one day.   —   YUR

PPS.  Third irony/coincidence:  The above photo is of Hayden Peak, in the Uinta Mountains.  One of my grandson’s name is Hayden . . . and, today is his birthday!      YUR

    This author was totally new to me, Unc Rave. It’s one of the benefits of working daily puzzles – meeting new people like Ms. Williams and seeing new places like the Uinta Mountains.
