Today I am returning to Musical Monday. My song today has a funny beginning. The teacher who teachs French, ESL, and English 10 at our school has joined a roller derby team. I remember watching Roller Derby when I was a child. My uncle Cecil, my dad's older brother, loved it. He actually took us to a roller derby once with my dad when I was a tweenager. I loved the sound of the wheels going round the wooden track. So...with that said...my Musical Memory today....and what moves me is a Jim Croce song called, "Roller Derby Queen." Every time I saw Sam today...the song was playing in my head....of course when I sang it for her...she did not know it...it was from another lifetime ago. Man did I just date myself. If you like Musical Monday then visit Jori and Diane at their blogs. They have a great time there....or visit Mimi and see what she chose for today. Happy Monday to all and to all a good night!
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
