Blogging Through the Pandemic, 2.0–“Retired But Not Shy” at Twelve

[Note: Ah, yes, the end of another blog year at “Retired But Not Shy”! Twelve years and counting, I guess. This past year has been difficult, what with the continuation of the pandemic and the need to create new posts for this blog. I’ve tried my best, but I’m still not sure how well I’ve fulfilled my responsibilities. Oh, well, we’ll see, I suppose!]

About georgelamplugh

I retired in 2010 after nearly four decades of teaching History at the "prep school" level with a PhD. My new "job" was to finish the book manuscript I'd been working on, in summers only, since 1996. As things turned out, not only did I complete that book, but I also put together a collection of my essays--published and unpublished--on Georgia history. Both volumes were published in the summer of 2015. I continue to work on other writing projects, including a collection of essays on the Blues and, of course, my blog.
