Share Your World – June 7

Polishing the world

Melanie is our host for Share Your World.

1) When you were a kid, did you eat the crusts on your sandwich or not? I did eat the crusts, it never occurred to me not to.

2) Are you a fan of musicals—why or why not? I do enjoy musicals. I started seeing them as a teen and was surprised at how much I liked them.

3) Is it difficult to do what you do? (for a living, hobby etc.).  If you’re retired, what you ‘did’ previously for a job can be substituted. I was a teacher before retirement. It was a very difficult job, but I loved it. I took my job seriously.  I spent nights and weekends working on lessons and grading. I worried about the well-being of all the kids and especially those who needed me the most.

4) What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?  (Doesn’t have to be a rock concert either). I saw Eydie Gorme and Robert Goulet at the Carousel theater in West Covina in the late 60s. I had never seen to a musical before. It was amazing.

GRATITUDE SECTION: Looking back over your life, what is one thing you’re grateful for?  One thing you really regret? I am grateful for my paternal grandparents keeping me in their life after my parents divorced. I really regret not knowing my maternal grandparents well. They lived across the country and did not have a good relationship with my mom. They moved to CA for one year and I got to know them a little. I was an adult at the time and realized how much I missed out on.
