What did you do after leaving BHS?

I married five months after turning seventeen and spent my seventh year pregnant with our son, Allen. Total disaster #1. When he was three months old I was back in Georgia and worked at Sunshine Bisquit Company until I remarried in 1968 and we moved to California. Disaster #2 but before the collards hit the fan I got involved with music, joined the Academy of Country Music, and was very blessed to be elected to serve on the Board of Directors in the catagory catagory as a singer/songwriter. We had one son, Tyler, divorced in 1983, and I have been deliriously happily divorced ever since. I've had three what I consider to be serious relationships since my last divorce, and a few stragglers just passing through, but I find myself happier when I'm not on a leash. When I was young I felt old and now that I'm old'er I want to feel and act young again. This is how I pull it off. I only look in a mirror where there's subdued lighting plus husbanditis and kiditis, added with dementia, helps me think I'm still 35 and Forever Young. LOL

Favorite School Stories:

I hated home economics because my mother started teaching me how to cook, sew, and grow up to be a good housewife when I was five years old. I loved to sew, but only what I liked to sew. I think my teacher's name was Mrs. Anthony, (dementia again) but I didn't like her and I liked her even less when she ordered me to make a dress with a sailor collar on it for a Fashion Show she was putting on. I made it but on the morning of the Fashion Show I ran to the sewing machine and sewed the collar shut so it wouldn't go over my head. For that prank I got an "F" and a red butt from my mother ... but ... I still grin when I think about the look on Mrs. Anthony's face when she tried to pull the dress over my head. LOL

Dream Vacation?

I'd like to go to Dreamland, dream it was 1958, wake up in bed on 3922 Linden Circle to the wonderful aroma's coming from the kitchen as our mother fixed breakfast, then wake up and find it to be true!

Biggest Regret while at Baker?

That I did not realize how important getting a good edcuation would be to my future.
