Meet the Professor

back porch banner

Some books are undeservedly forgotten; none are undeservedly remembered. — W.H. Auden

Mrs. B is a retired English professor who taught early literature to students who were more interested in using the ancient tales to create characters for their role playing games than they were in studying great books. Sometimes her students played those games in class, which distressed Mrs. B. She is now happily retired. She no longer reads great literature.

On summer days, Mrs. B can usually be found on her back porch, sipping iced tea and reading science fiction and mysteries. Sometimes there is a cat. When she is not reading, she putters in her gardens and talks to herself about how best to get rid of the chipmunks that have invaded the yard and made great lumps and holes in the lawn. Her neighbors think her odd, but she prefers to think of herself as eccentric.

This blog celebrates the odd, the eccentric, and the ordinary – in short, life.
