  •  My stepfather comes from a wealthy family. (7+ / 0-)

    I have no idea what he inherited, but I know the family is rich.  

    He also spent many years as an endocrinologist and almost as many as a member of the faculty at the University of Washington in Seattle School of Medicine.

    My parents can make me look downright reactionary politically, and they are very active in the local parks volunteer system - though it doesn't hurt that the park they volunteer for is half a block from their house.  

    The rest of my stepfather's family is much the same - though the younger generation(s) also work for their livings. It has always amused me that one of my brothers-in-law has a degree in forestry from Yale.

    Strength and dignity are her clothing, she rejoices at the days to come; She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the law of kindness is on her tongue.
