She never finished. Instead, she fulfilled her parents expectations; she married, had three bratty children, none who went farther then junior college, and worked part time when her last child entered school.
Like so many New York ladies, mom never learned to drive until we moved to California. Learning to drive as an adult is a lot different then learning as a teen and Mom never really got comfortable with the skill.
I OK with that. After all, she been a pretty good sport about being the subject of many a column at least the ones she knows about.
So at 52, mom picked herself up and went job hunting. Thank goodness online applications weren vogue yet.
It took her almost 17 years, but she finally received her AA and graduated Citrus College with honors. At 71, she was the oldest graduate in her class, with the loudest cheering section.

Mother, never content with the status quo, started taking classes soon after she was put on staff.
Mom retired about 18 months ago at 74. She didn want to, but the reasons why would take another column.
