Knowing that the path of a tornado is virtually unpredictable didn't faze you ?
Is that your horse in the photo ?

Yanno. I spent 55 years living in the heart of Tornado Alley and never even had a glimpse of a tornado. Of course, that can be blamed on my religion; I'm a Devout Coward. Our controling mantra is "Run Away!"

I would be out there right with you with a video camera lol. Whenever we have a major storm my mom will call me and tell me to go inside. Chasing a tornado is my dream!!

In the work force, I fell into, accidentally! My best friend had gotten a job at a rest home, but when her hubby found out about it, he said NO!! She called me and asked if I could go to work for HER that night at the rest home.

Always eager to help out, I said, "yes" and went. I have no idea what I wore, white was the dress code but I know that I had nothing 'nursey" at that time. Here I am, no training, but I had cared for our four sickly children for years, knew how to use a thermometer——walked in and said that I was there to work for "ANNE"

I still can't believe that we got by with that in all of our innocence, I worked "for her" for two years and did very well, changed diapers on adults, not easy but didn't take a brain surgeon, put up meds, our kids had been on lots of meds—-charted, told a few basic rules, and did, also mopped floors, ironed the patrons clothes, even Kahkis—-and loved dealing with the patients.

I was the only "nurse" on duty at night, I had 17 patients and had to have them ready for breakfast by 7am—-I even took in my own ironing for a family of 6, and did it after I finshed the residents—-nothing was ever said, they all left me alone, and I blissfully earned my first paycheck and also Health Insurance, which we never had before I started working—-

It was only years later that I re-thought that time, no interview, NOTHING, not my life signed away—NOTHING! Yet I held it for 2 years, then when she decided to try it again, I went over to our local hespital and APPLIED and was hired on the spot!! Ah—-those were the days!! haha—But in 1960, life was different. But I still am amazed that we "got by with it", it was just one friend helping out another—-TO US!! haha—Pat R

As easy as my first job…Daddy: "Suzie, get up. We leave for the store in 30 minutes". As a teen, we could move fast! Those were my Saturday's until I could drive, then I got in around noon.

May 2010: perhaps the craziest thing I ever did was get my head stuck under my desk at work. Now I must say that it wasn't intentional but it happened. I was plugging in a calculator on my first day at the job (1980s) and literally got my head stuck under the kickplate at the back of the desk. Oh, I was on my hands and knees for quite some time… too embarrassed to ask for help. When I finally got freed, I scraped my forehead to the point of bleeding. I'd love to know if anyone can top that, and, if so, will they admit to it???

Ok, I'll take the challenge.

In the '78 (?) I went to work at a savings and loan. My first day in I was asked (nicely) if I wold please go home to change my "halter type" long sun dress. I was "nicely padded" and the bank mostly catered to an elderly population, and I was told in any of the other branches, it would be just fine, but they were concerned for the elderly men's hearts. I did go home to change, but wore the same dress to one of the Dodger's World Series games…got an autograph by LEANING over the stand's bar in the direction of Steve Yeager. One look at my cleavage and he happily signed.

So, at the end of my first day at the bank (long story), I was helping my trainer count the cash drawer. They never told me about the silent alarm. and I set it off. Within 5 minutes the cops came with their guns drawn. That nite, on my way out, Donna (my trainer) suggested I wear nail polish cause it "looks nicer" counting cash to clients. Sunday nite I remember and go to the drugstore before they close. I buy my polish, and as I am approaching the driveway to leave, I find myself surrounded by a police car in front of me and 1 on each side…all had guns drawn. Hands up I asked what happened. As they sped back to the drugstore, one said there was a robbery at the drugstore, and mine was the last car to leave…

Monday I notice all the tellers are pointing down toward me, and Donna is pointing at me…the customer was one of the cops that responded to the silent alarm on Friday. He wanted to know who set off the alarm. Donna introduced us, and I mentioned the drugstore story. He said he would like to spend 24 hrs with me cuz lots of stuff happens around me or I was exciting to be around or some such stuff.

I can find more, but do I need to? :)

Oh yes. I used to wait on Jack's wife, Felicia Farr (also an actress), and worried Jack told her. I used to have a fabulous autograph collection I think my father threw out when I got married…forgot to take it at first, and then it was gone. 98% came from working at daddy's store. Sigh

I bet if you asked around that your Father kept it for the memories it brought back to him.

Reading imsuzie2 on this reminded me of a Valentines dance that my now x son-in-law took my daughter and myself to when I was visitingthem in Alabama.He was a member of the Elks and the dance was held there. He brought this man and woman over and introduced them to me ,and I stupid like trying to figure out why it was so important to single this couple out,after they had left my brain woke up it was the singer duo of father daughter, The Kendells ,who at that time was one of my favorites.

As a child (around 14), I was helping my daddy in his jewelry store. He called me over to the customer he was helping, and told me to get his autograph. I said "OK, who is he?" in front of the man. It was Jack Lemmon. I did not recognize him, and he was gracious. "Under the Yum Yum Tree" was his current movie.
