Weekend Coffee Share

Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some timely catching up with friends (old and new)!

If we were having coffee, we’d be outside enjoying the sunshine and blue skies.

I’d tell you that I just finished reading Dervla Murphy’s terrific Full Tilt: Ireland to India With a Bicycle. Her books are so invigorating. Now they don’t make me wish I had dysentery or was sleeping on a cold, dirt floor, but they do inspire me to explore or travel. I can’t wait to get another Dervla Murphy book.

Gilgit, Pakistan, one of Murphy’s stops

I had a Zoom job interview yesterday for an instructional design job for a real estate agency. It went fine. One interesting this was that the secretary who set everything up works from Manila, Philippines. It was 2am there. Time will tell if I get a second interview. Also, I’m excited about a Early Literacy Librarian job I applied for. After completing the application, I realized a couple sentences were missing from the description of a recent job. I tried to fix it, but it’s too late. Zanen.

Since it was supposed to get into the 90°s, my walking pal suggested going to Sommes Woods, a nearby forest preserve. I’d never been there and liked it’s short trail.

I’ve done some scanning of old family photos and found the newspaper stories on Gustav B. Keil, my great uncle* who was the mayor of St. Joseph, Michigan and got a patent for a part in washing machines and thereby made a fortune.

*I’ve learned that one’s father’s uncle should be called “grand uncle” while uncles in the generations prior would be “great uncles.” Like many people I used the wrong terms for both my grand uncles and grand aunts.

    Good luck with the job search! What would Early Literacy Librarian include, other than what i know about being a Librarian (a job I would love, by the way!!)?

  3. I think I might like your bicycle travel book. I sometimes enjoy travelogue writing. Some years back, I read about a book by an English guy who made a similar journey on a bike, across Europe and parts of Asia. That one is called, “You’ve Gone Too Far This Time, Sir,” by Danny Bent.

    I’m reading a fiction book right now called Miss Benson’s Beetle, but she’s traveling to another country and it has made me look up interesting things during my reading. I love books like that.
