Aunt Carolyn and Uncle David are retired school teachers. She taught first grade and he was a high school Biology teacher, wrestling and football coach. Before and after retirement they spent many hours in the field pursuing earth’s life-forms and natural wonders. Sadly, in July of 2012, Aunt Carolyn passed away.
These articles, stories and photos are, in most cases, drawn from Uncle David’s extensive archive. In other cases they are newly written. Many of the postings have already appeared in the newspaper local to where he lives.
Uncle David is well known in his southern Idaho community as a an expert birder and naturalist and I can personally attest that he is also loved by hundreds, if not thousands of former students who took his High School Biology class over the years. He was, to say the least, a unique and gifted high school teacher. I didn’t have the pleasure of seeing his instruction first hand, but I, like everyone in my family, have heard many stories and compliments from former students.
I am very grateful that he has allowed me to create and maintain this (his) blog. He sees the “likes” and reads the comments, but has asked me to respond to most of the comments.
Thanks for visiting. Here are some photos of Aunt Carolyn and Uncle David:
