First of all, I drove a truck across country by myself for 16 years from 1976 to 1993. It was not an easy thing to do in a man’s world. I had a lot of challenges when I broke into that field. I had to work twice as hard to get half the credit for doing the same job. At least I can say two things about my experience. I helped pave the way for women to drive trucks. Although I didn’t do the woman who went into this field any favors by paving the way. After 16 years on the road, my body is displaying all the damage that driving a truck does to a woman’s body. The second thing I can say about my experience is that this is a field where the men and the women receive equal pay.
My real passion is writing. When I find something interesting, I write about it. When I’ve had problems in the past, I’ve written about them in my diaries. I’ve even shared some of them right on this blog, after being rewritten of course.I realize that each person has their own tastes in what they like and what strikes their emotions. I enjoy viewing others work and finding value in each piece I view. After all, it would be a dull world if everyone liked the same things or thought the same way.
I’m retired now and have loved photography and art all my life. Now I have time to pursue my interests. Museums of all types are the first thing I look for when I travel. The coolest museums are the ones stuck in little towns in out-of-the-way-places. My traveling is limited at this time, but I do hope to continue in the near future.
This blog is going to contain three or four sections. The blog is the first one. The second section which will be opening soon is Very Basic Computer Lessons. I have found that many people my age avoid trying to learn the computer thinking they are too old to learn or understand it at all. With everything that is going on now, can a person really afford to not want to learn the computer? Unless you have kids that will do things for you, it is becoming a real necessity. Any company that you do business with wants you to do it online. Even the government wants you to do everything online. They even want you to file taxes online and you do get your return back far sooner if you do. Anyway, that section will be coming soon.
I’m going to offer to help those who want to preserve their older photos by using free editing programs to improve their pictures and restore some of the lustre they have lost. You’ll find that they are much easier than you think they are to improve. The last section will be the photos that I have manipulated and have for sale on AFA and Pixels. Any of the artwork I have for sale can be put on personal mugs, calendars, shirts, towels, and etc. That is a ways away.
