Dear Art Educators,

I sure would make a lousy administrator - I can't seem to get my "Quotes of
the day" out in the morning..... Things just keep popping up for me to do.
Well....anyway. I have been talking today with two Deborah's so today in is
honor of Deborah (also my sister's name). Deborah means honesty (My sister
was a little too honest at times -- smile).

Off the topic - I will close with this one just for Patty Knott - just in
case she is reading. I don't know who John Raper.
There is no pleasure in having nothing to do, the fun is having lots to do
and not doing it. (John W. Raper)
I am glad there are things Patty did not get done today. I had fun talking
to her, too.

I'll just do these quotes during the summer....Those of you who like quotes
can save them -- or ask me for the files during the school year.
