Writing my Memoirs
With Memory Monday
When we first retired here in Florida
I often frustrated my husband who was so solidly employed he worked for the same company all his working life, with just a stint in the Navy during his youth. He started at Sears, then after the Navy he got a job in Kmart management and worked for them until he retired. Kmart Corp bought Sears a few years ago and renamed the company Sears Holding, Inc. But I digress and that was him, loyal to a fault.
My favorite job was running the large library at a Christian school. I had student helpers but I had the full charge of the library. I held classes to learn the Dewey Decimal System and all about each category. I read my favorite books to all the classes through 7th grade during their library time.
Here is my list as I remember from age 16, each job has a good story behind it:
1. Copper Kettle Cafe - Waitress
2. Dairy Belle - Counter
3. Theater Concession sales
4. Jolly Burgers -counter
5. Sales Clerk, Hancock Fabric's
6. Gal Friday in a small office where I commuted to the city
