Four for Fridays

Hello everyone and welcome back! Work, work, work is all I did during the week. I've been pulling some serious overtime and still have more to go... Anyways, some questions from my tired bones.

1) What was your first paying job?

2) What was the first thing you learned how to cook?

3) What do you do for exercise?

4) I'm starting a series here... What event do you think signifies (or you identify with) the '60's?

Enjoy your weekend?

Mary, You were In DECCA? I was just thinking about that the other day. Maybe some cities should start that again. I didn't do It, but lots of kids did.

Toad - I don't remember what it was called but during my senior year I went to school half a day and work half a day.

1. Babysitting, but Boy Blue was my first official paycheck. I was in DECCA, too, in High School. MR Taylor found me a retail job. Both DECCA and Co-op are alive and running, still, in the High Schools.

2. Many things. I remember cooking hot cereal for me and my brother on the stove at a very young age.

3. Walk miles and miles and miles and miles every day.

4. I was a babe. Not much other than elementary school.

in 1960. JFK, RFK, MLK, assasinated. The Viet Nam war started. Marilyn Monroe found dead.
Charles Manson, miniskirts, sex revolution. If you remember the 60's you weren't having ANY fun.
