I kept the "box" in my room and when turned on I could listen to what was happening in the classroom. There was another "Box" at school that a student carried from class to class.
I could speak and answer questions when I pressed the bar on top.
One of three teachers came to the house each week to review lessons with me.
Here are a few photos during my recuperation.
I developed a Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis.
Betcha never heard of that either.
I spent many months on crutches but was able to return to school the following year.
I continued to grow (much to the delight of my physician) and the pins were removed leaving me with little more than a slight limp, minor movement loss and a little shorter on my left side.
That is what happened in my case. I was not diagnosed for weeks while seeing a family doctor. He concluded I was just seeking attention!
A trip to an orthopedist sent me right to the hospital for more x-rays and into surgery.

How about a batch with fresh springtime strawberries?
A basic muffin recipe that is nice to make and freeze
for breakfast or snack time.
So quick and easy.
It reminds me of the first thing I made in
Home Economics class... way long ago!
I like to make this recipe with those little beginner
bakers that frequent my house.
I found the recipe on-line.
I probably wouldn't call them best ever...
but they certainly satisfy the muffin lover in me.

Grandma's Cottage Bed & Breakfast
I obtained this receipt from "Taste of Home Cooking Magazine" in April of 2001. This is one of my favorites among our guests. Can be baked the night before and served the next mornin'.
In first bowl combine:
In a second bowl combine:
Stir second bowl of moist ingredients into first bowl of dry ingredients. Stir only until the dry ingredients are moistened.
Add to this mixture and only fold in:
Spray muffins tins with baking spray and fill 3/4 full. Sprinkle a little sugar (I used cinnamon sugar) on top of each muffin. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Cool 5 minutes then remove from muffin pan and enjoy. Yield 1 dozen or 6 large.

These photos were only lighten ever so slightly.
No other changes were made to them.
Afterward we went to a local diner and didn't get her home until after mid-night.
What a great time!

I began with a shortbread tart shell that is buttery and tender. After baked and cooled I moved on to the filling of a combination of bittersweet and milk chocolate.
I also wanted to use a fluted tart pan but I do not have one in my collection of pans.
A dollop of fresh whipped cream and we enjoyed a lovely ending to our dinner.

The sweet photos of her Great-Grandbaby looking into her eyes...
The photos of her Great-Grandchildren gathered round her
The photos of her blowing out the candle on her birthday cake
