was dinner time. And he was just like.... John: No, he was working there--he was cleaning it out. Sadie: So he figured he'd clean it out while the dinner hour was on. So, the boss came in.... (You used to make a poem when someone died. But you didn't make a poem about this death.) John: No. (Nor did anybody on that.) No. (That's too tough, to try to do for your? self.) It's harder to do anything for yourself. (Like that.) Some people don't mind, but--I wasn't that--I was soft. Sadie: Well, we'll be 65 years married the last of July, if God'11 spare us. And he hasn't been one day sick since we were married. Never even had to go to bed with a cold. And I had him to the doctor Tues? day. Doctor said he doesn't need--he's not even taking a blood pill.... Doctor said he doesn't need anything'... The doctor said he's perfect healthy--doesn't need nothing, he said, no pills, no nothing. John: I had a medical test.... Sadie: Four years ago.... John: And the doctor--a wom? an doctor, it was. She went all over me-- stripped right down, went all over me, never left a thing. And when she was done, she said, "Mr. Theriault," she said, "I never examined a man like you." She said, "You're perfect in every way." Sadie: Yeah, the doctor told him the otlier day.... He said, "I don't even have to give him a blood pill." He never took med? icine. Must be tobacco's keeping him healthy. John; Didn't hurt me, couldn't hurt me. Well, tobacco is a dirty habit.
