Personal History Question 33 is, “What did your parents do for work?”
Both of my parents had various jobs over the years. My dad worked for New England Telephone for several years in the 70s. Mom stayed home with me until I was in school full-time. She worked here and there, like in the school cafeteria, and at a local bakery/convenience store. Other jobs she had were at a pizza place, and a florist shop for many years. Upon moving to Florida, she ended up long-term at an air conditioning company. She pretty much kept the place running smoothly and did everything from answer phones, dispatch workers to jobs, and keep the books. My dad ended up working as a diesel mechanic and he did that until he was forced into disability at age 46.
It is so weird to me to be older than he was when he had his open heart surgery and his hip replacement… yikes.
