These are just a few of the exciting, unique and challenging jobs I've taken on for my "Editor in the Country" series. They have taken me to all 50 states and most of the Canadian provinces.

In 1976, young and wet behind the ears, I started accepting invitations from readers to "come work a day with me." My hardworking country hostesses have taught me a thing or two — and put me to the test in many memorable ways. I hope you'll enjoy reminiscing with me.

It's a privilege to have been associated with this friendly down-to-earth magazine. It continues to reflect the diversity, strength and spirit of country women throughout North America.
