Had a very interesting encounter yesterday..if I had had my camera would have added a photo. Complimented the lady next to me on MARTA on her lovely blue coat..it was cold..somehow the conversation went form Azelea (she has pink and white)..to where to find info on planting crepe myrtle..Look on the web..my little thing about webtv, when she said she had a pc but was not... And then she said ...it all somehow came out..she had retired after 40 years with the Atlanta Public Schools...went to the shopping malls at Lenox (Atlanta is mall heaven..or hell...depending on whether you are a man who has just given his wife/teenager the family plastic)...filled out paper applications..but at Nieman Marcus (we call it Needless Markup)..she was directed to a computer to do an applicagtion...she thinks they saw she could use it and they hired her on the spot...telephone operator. She was on her way to work... My students had fits about their simple questions for out test..they are so obsessed with grades... But a lot came by to let me help them..that is how I do best, one on one. Long dring, shrimp, etc. at Red Lobster with my buddy Diane ..media director....and a lot of silly complaining about coworkers....We really get going. I went to a thing with her with a woman Rabbi (D. is Jewish) about..the Jewish take on gossip....a few weeks ago. We were breaking all the "laws".... Cold here... Well, off to babysit for the day...spring break..so my daughter can go to one of her 3 freelance jobs...trade magazine she had first worked on back in 1986.... Oh...one more MARTA story..as I came back at 9:00..again past Lenox...a family of about 12 got on...little girls in the gorup in identical hairstyles with all those little braids and beads...a father, probalby daughters, granddaughters..a pair of twins in the group..the g father was sitting next to me and I asked..he said they olived in Florida but had a timeshare at Big Canoe in the Ga Mountains and got together every year....they must have been having an Atlanta break...from all tha fresh air..Big Canoe...one of those planned t.c. places... So..... If I go looking for a song to put on my web page for this diary day what should it be ??? Is there a "subway" song...??? E. And have a great one....
