AZ,"Sparkly Stuff", AZ, you are my kind of girl!. You and I were both wives and moms right out of High School and had a different kind of maturing than we've been reading here with those who went to college. I still proudly call myself "working class" though that distinction does not mean the same today. Many of our HS classmates also married early. It was the '60s and, as women, we had less opportunities than we have been able to give our children and now our grandchildren. My kudos to you and your sweetie pie for making your young commitment work for 50 years!
I am sure that fellow posters who have had the experience of college that we did not have can appreciate that we (and others here) have had the early experience of raising children and running a household without a degree. And it is self-evident that those of us here who might not have a degree have not stopped learning. I would not take away from those who have had the advantage of post-HS education, but I felt left out of the discussion earlier. (How dare you!) :>)
Damned you college people! (Wanna' have a crossword puzzle challenge?) LOL
OK, OK, I'll stop drinking and posting. Hic!
(You and me, AZ! Hic!)
