Payne:  So did you have somebody who wooed you and you just said, “No, I’m not interested.”

Ray:  To do what I wanted to.

Payne:  Yes, because marrying would have meant not being able to do what you wanted to?

Ray:  Yes.

Ray:  I guess about ten.  

Payne:  Really, ten women?

Ray:  Yes.

Payne:  Who had grown up in New Albany?

Payne:  And what kinds of … when you got a little bit older and were doing more things that riding around on Sunday afternoon.  What kinds of things did you do?

12:34   Ray:  I took another job at night at the picture show.  And I worked there about forty-four years but not the same forty-four years that I worked at the soil conservation service.  So, I worked most of the time.

Ray:  I lived with my mother.  

Payne:  And how long did she live?

Ray:  She lived to nineteen sixty-seven.
