Last Friday I fenced at DFC. It was mostly kids and not challenging.
Monday I went to help at foil because we had a bunch of girl scouts coming in to learn about fencing. Everyone rallied to help and it went well for the girl scouts. The regulars kind of got the shaft that night, but it could not be helped.
Tonight I had a good group lesson with Coach Miller and an even better private lesson. He bragged on me and it really made me feel good. I needed something like that.
My job search continues. Tomorrow will be week three. I talked to an ESC lady the other day. She told me that there is not supposed to be prejudice when it come to hiring someone in there fifitys....but there certainly is. I am determined to use my gray hair to my advantage and come through this thing. I hope determination counts for making something happen!
This weekend, certain touches, I make will be for my friend Beth. Beth is not well, but I am sure that she will be in the future. In the mean time she must hang up her blades for a while. It will just be for a while...I am sure. Someday my sister-in-arms and I are going to fence each other.
