In My Humble Opinion - IMHO
Sharon wants to write about a wide range of issues but mostly relating to society/culture, parenting, homemaking, humor, pets, schooling, music, humor, books, relationships (Dr. Abby wannabe) humor . . . did I mention humor? Bio: I am “retired” now after working so many different jobs since I was 16. I’ve not met many people who have had such an eclectic work history as I have had. Factory work of different kinds, farming, nursing, owning a motel, driving buses both school and transit, an artisan in a collectable basket business, office work, church office, lead teacher and assistant director in a child care center, teacher substitute and school nurse substitute and a para professional in public schools. Sunday school teacher and ministry team that traveled to other churches in other states and Canada. I belong to the Risen Son Riders, the Devils Lake Chapter of the Christian Motorcycle Association (CMA). And I am a bird watcher - love to see the birds!

The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had just gotten

married for the fourth time.

The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband's occupation. "He's a funeral director," she answered. "Interesting," the newsman thought.

He then asked her if she wouldn't mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years. After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her 20's, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40's, and a preacher when in her 60's, and now - in her 80's - a funeral director.

The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers.

Wait for it.......

"I married one for the money, two for the show

three to get ready, and

four to go."
