About gleefulee AKA Teresa Lee

Retired after 33 years of teaching English and French (one year in private school in Memphis, TN and the rest in public school in Doniphan, MO. Enjoying new adventures - all those things I put off for lack of time, energy, now I can try them! Pottery, writing, traveling, camping, kayaking, dancing, listening to some of the best live music ever, and making passionate, lively new friendships. All christened with an appreciation for great red wine! Created and operated KC's on the Current, then sold it and managed it for new owners. Now totally retired and looking for my summers to be full of fun as well! Born and raised in St. Louis, MO near The Hill. Though a transplant to Southeast Missouri, still very much a city gal at the core with a deep love of the natural resources in these Ozark foothills. Currently I am a content contributor for Poplar Bluff Living Magazine and a columnist for our local weekly The Prospect News. My rescue Siamese helps with most of the proofreading; he has a great ear. I relish the solitude easily had in the Mark Twain Forest but thoroughly enjoy lively outings for music, wine, conversation close to home or in my beloved hometown. Technology is my greatest challenge but so worth the shared connections. There may be a need for solitude but there is little loneliness.

No dressing, thank you.

I don’t like dressing. Maybe you call it stuffing. After a bit of research I realize stuffing/dressing both describe the same dish. One comes out of a turkey, the other out of a pan. Either way, I don’t like it. … Continue reading

The Boot Goes On, The Boot Goes On

Chilly damp weather invites welcomed changes to the wardrobe. Soft sweaters, turtlenecks, comfy tunics, all coordinated with skinny jeans and knee-high boots battle the ‘brrrs’ AND match my youthful spirit. (I will never readily admit that my spirit and my … Continue reading
