Scary Heat Thursday

Good morning friends. It's very hot here in Amherstburg, Ontario, Canada. Yesterday was 95 degrees, index 99, today 97 degrees index 100 and tomorrow ( when I'm suppose to play golf ) 94 degrees index 97. Hopefully we are suppose to get some storms in the afternoon but I doubt that it will change how hot it will be. It doesn't change until the weekend where it should be in the middle 80's.
I've already arranged to bring 3 bottles of Gatorade. Two bottles are frozen already. I'll taken them out tonight so they should be ready tomorrow morning. I'm just going to have to rest as I play tomorrow I guess.
As I said after I did my post about police  and the respect I had about policemen, this post will be about teachers of which I one for 31 years. By the way, Tuesday I had a wonderful time sitting down with two former students who are policemen, Detective Gary Bezaire, London Police Force and Officer Steve Owns, Amherstburg Police Force. It was wonderful seeing these great men. By the way, they were great students when I taught them. I hope that I will have another chance to see them again.


Describing his teacher to his mother, Jimmy called her “mean but fair.”
“Just what do you mean by that?” – his mother asked.
“She is mean to everybody.” – Jimmy replied.

Pupil (on phone): My son has a bad cold and won’t be able to come to school today.
School Secretary: Who is this?
Pupil: This is my father speaking!


A teacher of the earth science class was lecturing on map reading.
After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees and minutes the teacher asked, “Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 23 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude and 45 degrees, 15 minutes east longitude…?”
After a confused silence, a voice volunteered, “I guess you’d be eating alone.”

A mom and dad were worried about their son not wanting to learn math at the school he was in, so they decided to send him to a Catholic school. After the first day of school, their son comes racing into the house, goes straight into his room and slams the door shut. Mom and dad are a little worried about this and go to his room to see if he is okay. They find him sitting at his desk doing his homework. The boy keeps doing that for the rest of the year. At the end of the year the son brings home his report card and gives it to his mom and dad. Looking at it they see under math an A+.
Mom and dad are very happy and ask the son, "What changed your mind about learning math?"
The son looked at mom and dad and said, "Well, on the first day when I walked into the classroom, I saw a guy nailed to the plus sign at the back of the room behind the teacher's desk and I knew they meant business."

A little girl came home from school and said to her mother, "Mommy, today in school I was punished for something that I didn't do."
The mother exclaimed, "But that's terrible! I'm going to have a talk with your teacher about this ... by the way, what was it that you didn't do?"
The little girl replied, "My homework."

 A teacher was having trouble teaching arithmetic to one little boy. So she said, "if you reached in your right pocket and found a nickel, and you reached in your left pocket and found another one, what would you have?" "Somebody else's pants."


Teacher: "Sam, what is the outside of a tree called?"
Sam: "I don't know."
Teacher: "Bark, Sam, bark."
Sam: "Bow, wow, wow!"


Teacher: Johnny, you know you can't sleep in my class.
Johnny: I know. But maybe if you were just a little quieter, I could.

"If there are any idiots in the room, will they please stand up" said the sarcastic teacher. After a long silence, one freshman rose to his feet.

"Now then mister, why do you consider yourself an idiot?" inquired the teacher with a sneer.

"Well, actually I don't," said the student, "but I hate to see you standing up there all by yourself."


Well that's it for now. Being a teacher was one of  my proudest moments. As you can see, my students do come back and see me. I often wondered when I retired, did I do anything for my students? Well, many of my past students still come to see me and they and their parents always tell me how proud that their children loved my class and me and they also remember much of the life ideas that I taught in my class. One especially was the word RESPECT and they in turn show that to me today. Thank you.

                                                                       " SEE YA "


  1. I'm sorry it's going to be so hot the next few days. I hate heatwaves. We're having a warm spell here too, but not as hot as in your area. Looks like you've planned how to survive your golf game. Good for you.

    Teachers rock and it's a hard job. Used to be a lot easier, but now many parents find fault with the teacher when the fault lies with their child. Thank you for being a good facilitator to so many.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. ☺

    1. I agree Sandee. It's so hot that you really don't want to do anything except staying inside.
      Thank you for the positive comment.
      See ya.

  2. Wow, how neat is that that you got to see two of your x-students and know how well they turned out. My niece was a special ed and reading teacher before retiring so I know how dedicated most people in your profession are.

    It's been ungodly hot here in Michigan, too, without much relief in sight.

    1. Jean it was 90+ today and I hope to get some rain soon. I hope.

  3. My hat is off to you, you were an amazing teacher!

    One teacher of arithmetic was trying to help a little boy add. He said, "If you have two candies in one hand, and three in the other, how many do you have?" and the child responded, "A mouthful!"

    Teachers are amazing, they put up with so much.

    Hope you enjoy your golf tomorrow in spite of the heat.

    1. Thank you for your high comments. It makes me feel great. " a mouthful " Ha,ha,ha.
      See ya my friend.

  4. Blimey that would be a nightmare here in London as it's never prepared for any extreme weather, when we do get extreme weather everything comes to a standstill heheh!

    I found your post quite heartwarming even some of the jokes too :-)

    I agree with Sandee teachers do have a hard time espeially in this PC world arrgh

    Have a great day golfing Pauleo de Cornetto and in this heat avoid sweaty balls it can be a hindrance :-)

    1. Hey Steveo, how do know that I have sweaty balls? Ha,ha,ha. You have a great time also my friend.

  5. Hawt hawt! The N GA Alps are cooling off to mid-80s. Thank goodness.

    Enjoyed all the teacher funnies. Both daughters and daughter-in-law are teachers.

    Big hugs, honey...

  6. We are also having temperature as hot as what you have over there. The hot weather is making me very lazy. I prefer to hide indoors with the fan on full blast. We can only sleep with the air con on. Great teachers and students joke.
