On June 15th we taught a Dabble class. With over 12 years of blogging experience, Molly was courted by the Dabble folks to host one on the topic and, once she said yes, we added Royal's 13 years teaching experience and ... hey, there was learning. About blogging. And we had serious fun.
Our class was great. The folks who signed up for it were really cool, had lots of ideas and, we think, are well on their ways to posting insightful writing about surviving cancer, books they've read from a teen perspective, instructing and critiquing rehabilitating homes and adding personal and manageable updates to their professional and scholarly websites.
We'll share the great work of these folks once it starts coming out.
Thanks for the wonderful class!
Recently, we visited Guido Pfister, Christopher Latham Sholes and the former site of The Norman, on Wisconsin Ave. in Downtown Milwaukee, where four people died in a 1991 fire that consumed the iconic apartment building in minutes.
Much like our Ofrenda, we paid homage to these people and places that impacted Milwaukee, lighting a candle for the dead at the former site of the Norman, bringing flowers and saying a few words at the Pfister family plot. Molly is posting about honoring the memory of Guido to the Pfister narrator's blog.
We often visit Christopher Latham Sholes, sometimes with custard-carrying kids, but this time we brought our new Royal Mercury portable typer. Molly typed out a note to Christopher and we left flowers for our typewriter inventing friend.
The accompanying photo gallery documents some of our day visiting the dead. (Clicking on a thumbnail will generate a larger image and the gallery can be scrolled through.)
