Hard evidence that spring is really here

Peerless Watercolors

The Peerless packaging is 'Kodak' yellow to associate the product with photo tinting techniques.
At 11 Diamond Place, Rochester, NY, the Peerless company had a business for about 100 years. They worked closely with Kodak, originally as aniline dye paint colors to enhance photographs. When I took this picture, a pickup pulled up. The new owner is going to renovate the building into a loft apartment on top and a business space on the bottom. It's not a pretty building, but it's products made a lot of pretty photos and paintings. I like Peerless paints, and now the company is based in Stoughton, Wisconsin!

Friday in Mr. Darrow’s class

The class made pizza quesadillas. He had 2 ovens and a griddle going, along with a big fan because the room got a bit warm.  I was the designated oven monitor and quesadilla cutter-upper. The students love cooking.

You have to use all the letters of the alphabet

You can't just go around ignoring the ones you don't like. Mr. Capital H might get hurt feelings about this.

Another hurricane survivor

These pictures are from my first session with this 5-year old survivor of the hurricane in Puerto Rico. 
He was happy and excited to start learning English.
