After college I became a social worker for 10 yrs.,then after i got married,I became a pastry chef, working with Culinary Institute of America trained chefs. I worked at the Johnson City Country Club for years, then moved to Bristol, TN. and started at the Martha Washington Inn in Abingdon, worked there until I got a job at the Bristol, Country Club. I then went to a little place in Bristol called K.P.Duty for several years until I retired in '95. In '93I had bought a little house in Bristol, and after I retired I started remodeling it. I've done something to every and now it has tripled in value. I also planted about 50 trees on my little lot,only lost 3 of them over the years-my effort to be ecologically aware. I created my own woods! Over my life,I've had some really weird experiences, met some people filled with hate,some with love, some with greed, some with lust, and some who are totally out of it. My life has never been boring,I got to work at doing something I was really good at, and enjoyed. My health has always been excellent and remains so----in spite of all the cakes, pies,cookies,bread, and other sweets I've baked over the years,my weight hasn't varied much from 135lbs. I usually got the waiters to taste every thing! I still read a lot; all but 4 of Tom Clancys, Daniel Silva {great read}, Joseph Finder, Robin Cook, Steven King,etc. I'm not on any social networks, don't even have a cell phone and only got my computer back after it being on the fritz since Aug. I remain a strong Democrat. I despise Donald Trump and tune in the morning news shows every day to see if he's gotten us into another war. What an ego he has-- he can't keep from telling everyone how smart he is. How could Americans be so gullible to vote for a man who stood up and said " Vote for me and I'll give you every thing you want."? Do any of you remember reading Orwell's book "1984"--thats Donald Trump's attacks on the free press and the technology is coming to in this country. Now have 5 cats, plus 5 more I'm feeding from the neighbor hood. Also feed a raccoon, possum, a yard full of squirrels, and occasionaly deer that come to the bird feeders. After I retired,I volunteered at Bristol's Hospital, there for a couple of years and at the public library--don' do that any more , plus joined a gym and got myself in shape. Don't do that anymore, tho I've just gooten new insurance that gives me free membership to a local work out center,so will start doing that again soon. My life would seem boring to most people, but what the hell, I still believe in God and love, and that's good I hope. I noticed not many people post any more, but I'd really like to know what's going on with the rest of you. Sheila Davis, are youall still in Myrtle Beach? And the rest of you, Jennings, Greg, Charles Lee{my neighbor hangs out clothes on her clothes line all summer},Richie,Diane, Joyce Ann{I love animals as much as you do and contribute to the ASPCA every month},Willie, Johnny Dixon,Buford, Delores, Margerat Crabtree, and all the rest of you? That's all for me. Iknow my comments about Trump will piss some of you off, but I just had to speak out. My love to you all--we were quiet a class, were'nt we?
