Life is Good…

Dear Reader:

If grief is the price of love, then falls, ” little ” c,” doctor’s appointments, surgical procedures, and rehab must be the price for longevity!

And guess what? As we Ya Ya’s once again convene at Edisto … all those medical ” interruptions” are just that… interruptions but not endings! Life is good and all of us are willing to to do what is necessary to be present and accounted for twice a year!

… And if you are lucky enough to have a birthday in the fall… with Ya Ya friends… you keep partying into continuum and beyond!

The birthday bag said it all… Best Birthday ever!
Look at my beautiful fall painting… now while ‘ waiting for fall’ I can immerse myself into it at any time!!

Getting ready to party!

If you are trying to read the fridge magnets… they say… ” It’s Weird Being the Same Age As Old People!”
How lucky am I?
This card was too funny…You know you are getting older when… 1. You feel like the morning after but you didn’t go anywhere the night before. 2. Your knees buckle but your belt won’t! 3. Your back goes out more often than you do. 4. Everything hurts, and what doesn’t hurt, doesn’t work! 🤗
I lOVE my ” Life Is Good” Winnie the Pooh long-sleeved t-shirt-just perfect for the beach this year!!! And it is so true- FRIENDSHIP MAY BE THE MASTERPIECE OF NATURE

So until tomorrow…On the tag of my ” Life is Good” t-shirt is labeled – Do What You Love – Love What You Do! And being together is what we love. Friendship, conversation. stories, and especially memories ( along with cool fall breezes , long cool drinks, delicious food, ocean views, sand between the toes and all is right with the world. Best medicine EVER!

Today is my favorite day… Winnie the Pooh

Of all Winnie the Poodle’s favorite toys-Tigger is her favorite!
Marcia Temple ( Mollie’s mom) is down visiting and she sent me a picture of her gorgeous maple tree ( NH) Marcia… incredibly brilliantly outrageously beautiful! Autumn in New England.

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”
