because I'm very organized. I told my husband that and he said,
"You'd be a horrible private secretary! You can't type and you don't
do anything anybody tells you to do.' I realized he's right, so I don't
know what I would do."

Looking back over her 30 Years as "Viki" on OLTL in March, 2001.

On getting older: "When I turned 40 we were in the market
and Michael was at the end of the aisle, looking for cereal or something
and he saw '40' written on the cereal box. And he said, 'Mom, look
it's your birthday, it's your age...40' He yelled it as loud as anything.
What are you going to say? You can't be angry with them. I didn't have
a problem with turning 40 or anything else, because you are what you are,
and you feel how you feel and there's not a lot you can do to change it.
You can just live as well as you can."
