  1. Fascinating! Now if someone had told me this 40 years ago! LOL!!

    However when I was in high school girls took steno and typing. We were expected to cook and sew neither of which I do. Well I do cook but I’m no Susie Homemaker.

    The US Army had me working with and electric typewriter. I remember in my first job after the military I worked with a Telex machine.

    Then in my 20s the world changed with the PC, then came beepers, cell phones and somewhere along this time line records, cassette tapes, 8-track tapes, CDs, now digital. The world has changed some much since I graduated high school back in 1977 there would have been no way to anticipate what I wanted to do. Technology has changed everything. Personally I think kids growing up today have more opportunities than I did in the 1970s. However since I’m maybe 2 years from retirement and soon to be 60 I will concentrate on the 3rd phase of my life and make my Golden Years count.

    1. I graduated High School 10 years after you did πŸ˜‰ Even then I didn’t know what I wanted to do. My first instinct was to be Pilot so I could travel the world but my dad didn’t support that route because 3 of my brothers were already in flight school. So my next option was Computer Programming, back there there were NO jobs back home in that so I went back to college to earn a degree in Business Administration. Now when I tell people I’m a Business Administrator they say, Oh, you mean a secretary!

      My job is more than secretarial, I worked 8 years in the Diplomatic Corp, before that I was station manager or a local airline, before that I owned a Curio store but had to close shop and go back to work after my first marriage ended and I moved out of town.
      But I don’t think life is simple, we don’t learn the it’s meaning until we’re older. My 22 and 18 year old are in Uni and even now they vacillate between options. ME now I just wanna be skinny, rich and happy. LOL! LOL! And a successful writer πŸ˜‰


    2. Thanks for stopping by and always sharing your story. I really do believe you should right a book about your journey. I’m sure reading about your experience would help a lot of people out there. Including myself.


Always great to hear from you....
