I was born Eleanor Rutledge in the (then) small town of Sanford, N.C. I'm a retired nurse with 42 years of service in the medical field. I took my vocational nurses training in Topeka, KS at Kaw Area School of Vocational Nursing. I moved to California when I finished my nurses training and just never left. Ventura is beautiful and has a wonderfully moderate year round climate.
My wonderful husband, Ralph, puts up with me spending time writing and doing research at the computer.
Having four of my six grandchildren close by gives me more to be thankful for.
