My mom was from Exeter England and so I am a big history buff on anything England,,I know I am related to Sir Francis Drake the Queens Pirate and so when I went searching for any thing on my mom's school she went to when she was growing up I was shock to find info on it..here are some pictures of it and a link to the article of it..I hope you enjoy it...the color picture is of Bishop Blackall in the 1900's and the 2 black and white ones are of the school in the 1920's.

I just decided this morning that I need a change from my vampire books I have been reading, so I thought that this summer I would only read classics..and starting with none other the Jane Austen and Persuasion. I am looking forward to reading classics as I love classic music,and movies so why wouldn't I like classic books..I will keep you all posted in what I am reading and how I liked them...till then good day...

Its going to be a warm one this weekend here in Arizona,,,temps in the triple digits...oh yeah...well this is going to be a short post,,,had a nice quiet evening last night, Justin went and played racquette ball with our son Matt and so I sat down to do a little stitching and watch a movie I got yesterday,,it was a good one. I am into classics right now and Audrey Hepburn is one of my favorite actresses, it was "Paris when it Sizzles". Well I hope to get more stitching done this weekend, and some more movie watching. You all have a great weekend, till next time.
