the questions I posted for Thanksgiving, you know, the ones none of us has attempted to answer yet. Actually, I did tell a couple of friends my answer to this one, and now I'll share it with you.
"What advice would you give to your younger self?" I told my two friends, "I'd tell myself not to get married." Yeah, I didn't do very well in picking a husband. "But what about your three children?" one of them asked. Well, there you go. Back in the 1950s and 1960s, one certainly did NOT talk about choosing to be a single mother and raising children on my own. It was not done. Oh, no, no, no. Unless, of course, one was divorced. Which I was. So I raised them as a single mother, anyway, albeit with their father getting them on weekends and such.
I guess I'll have to re-think this advice. (Is that like recalibrating?)
