Ray:  Yes.

09:23   Payne:  And so, then did you stay with the soil conservation over a long period of time?

Ray:  Forty-four years. (laughter)  All my life. (laughter)

09:38   Payne:  Well, now, were you a single, independent woman or did you marry?

Ray:  No. No.  Still single.

Payne:  Still a single, independent woman.  And so, did that mean that you had a group of women friends with whom you took vacations …

Ray:  No.  I didn’t take vacations.  I just had a bunch of friends here in New Albany.

Payne:  And what kind of things did you do?

Ray:  Rode around on Sunday afternoon with whoever had the car. (laughter)

Payne:  Where did you ride to?

Ray:   Just around town (laughter)

Payne:  Well, Aunt Marguerite remained a single, independent woman as she … as she called it and she said that she just never met a man who was as good as her brothers.

Ray:  That’s probably right.  (laughter)  So, is she dead?

Payne:  She died four years ago.

Ray:  Is that right?

Payne:  Yes, at ninety-two.

Ray:  My goodness, how old was she?

Payne:  She was ninety-two when she died.  So, she would have been … she would have been about thirteen years older than you.

Ray:  I remember her.

Payne:  Yes … but we liked … she …. She talked about her decision not to marry and she just said, “I never found anybody as good as my brothers.”  (laughter)
