Now, the hard one. Tell us what we need to know. Give us 50 years in the space below:

Met Bruce when I was 21. Got engaged at 22. Built our first home while engaged. Moved after eight years with two children to Syracuse , NY , then after five years to Pennsylvania , then to Cincinnati , Ohio , onto Rochester , NY . Transferred to New Jersey after living in Hong Kong . NJ was our longest home stay. I retired from municipal government as an Assistant Tax Assessor (almost 15 years).

Finally, if I had to do it all over again, I would…do it all over. I loved being in the International Corporate World of Business (in which I participated)
