• Yes. At 17 I saved enough money waiting tables in one year to pay for a down payment on a new car and my first year in college.

  • Yes. We have a peak in the mountains nearby called 'Aanamudi'. Some 3400' tall. There is a good trail as people often climb it. The younger guys in our locality said people of my age group couldn't climb it and make it to the top. Four of us took up the challenge. We started out on a Sunday morning with some 15 young fellows for company. We did climb it and reached the top before noon and got back home by evening.

She said I shouldn't bother..she and some of her other friends had tried and they were told there were no openings. I went anyway and got hired on the spot. I didn't want my friend to feel bad so I told her that a job had opened up right before I applied...if that had been the truth, no one at Bullock's ever told me. :)
