    Whenever the Pitts athletic teams win, they can always rub their opponents’ face in a Pitts victory…. - Conversely, if they lose, you can be sure to hear the students at Pitts say: “We stink!”

    I think this pretty well sums up the feeling of anybody at their job. Even if they overall enjoy what they do. I like what I do for a living but almost daily I wish i was in Bermuda, or Hawaii, or even Vegas (where I want to retire too)

    This doesn’t make Mr. Fogarty seem sympathetic, it makes him seem pathetic. Every. single. day. for the past 30 years, he has wished he were ANY place else? And yet he did NOTHING about that. He never changed careers or tried to help himself in any way. *It definitely lends credence to the theory that Mr. Fogarty is terrible at his job. I have the feeling that this whole Fogarty plot will end with his students demonstrating that he really did make a difference. Too little too late.

    WORK DAY/PLAY DAY: I propose we have one during Memorial Day weekend. Yesterday I suggested updating Wikipedia’s Luann page, and JayBlue added,* “There’s also “Tropes.com” and Wikia (not to be confused with Wikipedia) and a few other sites that must be “maintained” and/or updated.”*Shall we go about this in an organized manner or just hit & miss, editing each other’s work at will? (That might be more fun and prevent uniformity.) What say we do the Wikipedia page unbiased to our favorite characters and as fans on one of the other sites?

    I taught for 30 years. The only thing wrong with this strip is the sex of the teacher. Most of the men were teaching because they loved their subject, or because it let them also coach. It was the women who had in the 1960s had the same experience I did. When I went to my high school adviser with A’s in mechanical drawing etc ( though I was the only girl in the class) and said I wanted to be an architect, his reaction was a gentle smirk and " That’s cute, do you want to be a secretary, nurse, or teacher?" So, yeah, there were a lot of teachers who hated the job and never should have been there, but most of them were women.

    Hmmmm. My 8th grade language arts students once likened me to Fogarty. Someone even gave me a birthday card with Fogarty on it. Well, I am bald, wear glasses, and have used some of his mannerisms and have given similar assignments. I also retired last year, so I am finding I have more and more similarities to him. Hmmmm. I actually used the Fogarty image for my Facebook account for awhile. And when I once wrote Greg and told him kids identified me with Fogarty, he replied how sorry he was for me. Well, hrumph. Fogarty and I are both going to be retired and ENJOYING IT. So there!

    “Yeah, the Four Lads! I’m sure the 45 is worth a small bit of change, by now!”^“Depending on its condition.”^Well, true. – I left that part out, only because though it generally is the case, you’d be surprised at which records will still attract some attention. For most records, they must be in NM, M, or VG condition, but there’s a special group of records (Meet the Supremes’ first pressing, $9,000+; second pressing of album with alt. cover, $500-1,000+) that collectors will make an exception on, especially if it is in “out of print” or “limited stock” worldwide, and they think that the chances of them running across it in a better condition or even ever again are “slim and none”….

    That’s the same way I feel about oxygen. I don’t like particles or histamines or even alloys in it. I take mine straight to the head- well, first to the nose, then to the lungs. Okay, I admit, I also like it to swirl around in my bloodstream a bit… but then, straight to my brain, right after that… – I also like planets without nuts in them….
