Sally, I have pretty much the same story.  Back in 1970 I applied for a pathology secretary position and the pathologist asked me if I could sew, which meant he wondered if I could do intricate work with my hands.  In my spare time, I trained in histology and took my registry in 1973.  It was the best decision I ever made to take him up on his offer.  I love, love, love being a histologist and hope that my health remains good so I can do it for many more years to come.

If it weren't for a med-tech-turned-pathologist that took me up on my interest in becoming trained in histology (1967), I would not have just marked my 41st year as a histologist.  Back then, you just had to have OJT and study independently for your written and practical tests.  I had no idea what I was getting into but it was one of the absolute best choices I ever made.  To pretend to quote some baseball player, "Histology been berry, berry good to me"!
