|Inf: I don't have a lot of free time. I start my maids to work at 8:30, and they stop for lunch at 11:30. And uh, I am here on the job, uh, start making calls at six o'clock in the morning, and I'm on duty until six of an evening. And then I am off for the evening. I have two girls that relieve me evenings, and then I can go and come as I like, do whatever I want to for the evening. Usually go out to dinner with my husband unless it's on Rotary. This evening there was a Rotary meeting, dinner meeting, I ate alone. And normally we go to the Oxford [?] and have dinner and get away from the motel and forget about it for a while. So I am pretty well tied down to my job.
FW: How long have you been working here?Inf: Since 1949. [FW: Oh boy]. And I have a bookkeeper comes in, does my posting, couple of evenings a week. And I have a CPA man that does my tax work. And uh, I make all my own quarterly reports. It has to be very, very accurate and I have a very good bookkeeper to, that does the posting, but he's, I've never uh showed him how I make my reports an' I feel that I've been at it so long that I am very accurate with it. I, I would feel that I had to go over his, just to double check, until he got onto it, so I continue doing my own. And I make my payroll out. And supervise the maids. That's my day's work.
