Ahem. I'm Just Sayin'.

Hello, lurkers.

Oh no, my lurking self has been caught - although I have made a comment or two. Good luck with your new computer, by the way.

It takes too much effort to post comments. That's why I never do it.

Being a fellow Oklahoman who still lives and teaches in "God's country", I thought that we had a psychic connection. Since it doesn't seem to be working I'll just let you know that I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog. Keep it up, 'cause we're listening.

Hmm. I don't take it personally if no one comments, just like I don't get really mad if no one has questions after I give an assignment or go through a lesson. In my mind, it's because they're agreeing or understand it and just sitting there nodding.

Yeah, I don't get many comments (not as many as you, for instance) and I figure I must just make perfect sense to everyone and they figure I have covered everything.

Laura - that's the best way to consider things.

What I sometimes do is ask a question or two during my post that people can answer in comments. That helps get the conversation going sometimes.

Unfortunately I don't get a lot of comments on my educational posts. Politics, Sports, and my son get many more.

I just thought this cartoon was funny. My husband often says stuff like this to me, because he does not worship in the Church of Blog....

okteachermom, God bless ya! I don't know how you do it. I'm not sure I could afford to be a teacher in Oklahoma.

Laura, you DO make perfect sense.

40, you run your fingers over the keyboard-- it's easy. :-)

And carol, you have made a comment or two. I liked your post about fathers, too.

Mr. Lawrence, but you can see if the kids can understand by looking at their faces for signs of comprehension. Here, not so much.
