1. I was born in 1958 (barely) – in December. The year before Alaska became a State.
2. My mother worked once I was in school – she was the elementary school secretary where I attended – it was a dream job for all of us. Off in the summer. Once I was in jr. high she went to work for the school admin. office. She LOVED to work, but was a great Mom too. My Dad was a pastor til he retired. I appreciate my parents so much.
3. I have several going at once: 1,000 gifts by Ann Voskamp; Apothecary by Maile Meloy, The Country of the Pointed Firs by Sarah Orne Jewett, and I just finished The Hunger Games on my Kindle. Quite an assortment!
Thanks for posting The Thursday Three — it’s fun!
Good morning Susan. I’m glad you’re enjoying the Thursday Three. We’ll see how long I can go without asking a repeat question.
That sounds great having your mom working at your schools. Not all kids would think so unfortunately.
1. 1960. Ike was still President, but Kennedy was about to be elected.
2. My dad worked at a gas station as a mechanic. My mom worked at a music store in our little town. A real music store with records, acoustic guitars, banjos, violins, band instruments, harmonicas, kazoos …. what a great store! As I got older, my brother and I along with the owners’ children would work sidewalk sales (a 3 day event). We’d be outside blowing whistles, siren whistles, nose whistles, maracas, bongos … it was great fun and we always sold a lot of stuff.
3. I have several books that need to be read, but my schedule isn’t cooperating right now.
2. Yes my Mom was secretary at our church and my dad worked at steelcase
3. Not reading a book.
Ah, Steelcase. Some of the prettiest and cleanest Semi trucks on the road. I worked at Steelcase in Grand Rapids for a week as a “Kelly Girl” back in the 80s.
2. Mom stayed home until my younger sister was in high school then she did some odd jobs like selling Amway, part time restaurant work and was a cashier at a convenience store for a little while. Dad worked at a chemical plant in Texas City, Texas as a chemical purchaser. He was always a white collar office guy.
3. I never have read books unless they’re cook books or ways to make home made soaps and cleaning solutions. I also have a book that my BFF gave me for Christmas one year that’s everything you need to know about living on a farm. I pick that up when I have time and read it and highlight things that I plan on using when I retire. I guess I’m just not interested in books unless there is a benefit in it for me.
If you mean by outside as being a paying job no. Mom worked harder than that at being a wife and mother!
The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone – by Tennessee Williams.
2. Sort of. My father was full-time in the Air Force, my mother was mostly at home but volunteered with the base Family Services group for a while, and went back to teaching full-time (as she’d done before my older brother was born) when I was in high school.
3. “The Fiddler’s Green” by A. S. Peterson
