Blogging makes you lose weight!


This is a group picture of students I had back in 1991.

I was quite an impressive teacher with all that weight.

Underneath laid someone gentile as Koji commented yesterday.

You read the comments don’t you?

Pierre! OMG! Is that you with your students??? I didn’t know you were a teacher.

I’m sure they learned of sacrifices and bravery! And what did I do to deserve this?!?!

You are much too gentile, Monsieur…

Merci beaucoup! And you sure do know me!

That’s the fun part of this blog.

There is an anecdote to this picture posted on Facebook last week.

I got notified I was on a picture…



I read all of the comments on Facebook and I kept a low profile. Comments made were nice and not derogatory.

Then I dropped a few comments about my weight and my sense of humor (humour if you are English speaking).


No more commenting…

I believe some students never expected this, just like Koji receiving his award.

Second row on the right, the girl next to the boy with the Montreal Canadiens jersey…


I met her yesterday. She was with her kids and I was with my grandson in the same municipal park. She did not recognize me.

I told her…

You’re one of my students.

She looked at me… and I told her my name. She told her’s.

Then she remembered and said…

They don’t make teachers like you anymore.

OMG! Moi!
