My husband Tom continues to be my loving supporter, we've been together since 1973. Jobs included a variety of office work, market research analyst for 6 years, working at a retirement home as an Activities Director, and dealing with plans and variances in an Environmental Control office. We chose not to have children. We lived in the Grass Valley area of California for 25 years. After that we were in Washington, back in California, and since 2013 in Oregon . Tom and I are looking forward to our long-awaited journey across the USA and Canada over the next few years. Favorite activities are outdoor walks and museums. I still spend a good amount of time reading. In 2016 and 2017 I set up 55 eBooks on Kindle under the umbrella title of Permission Granted Today. For over 30 years I'd written and published articles in the personal and professional growth fields; these became the chapters. Overall, life has been good and we are grateful.
