And we were up visiting her when the man? ager (of the Wandlyn Hotel), she came in with a gift for her-- 'cause that's where Joe's mother worked, at the Wandlyn. And we were all sitting around talking. And I happened to mention that I worked in a laundry before. And they were looking for someone with laundry experience. And she offered me a job right then, and I went to work on Monday. So, you know, I got back to work before the un? employment went out.

So everybody says they're never going to--I worked with Ann Young, who was at Gl. And I worked with a couple of other girls--whack of them, really--there were about 10 of us from Gl.
