H: Really? Well, I never stopped to realize that, but that goes with that old New England saying, “Use it up. Wear it out. Or do without.” What was it like to move to West Warwick in that big house?

Audrey: Oh, all the houses I lived in were big. Now I live in a mansion (Alpine Nursing Home) but I only have one room, but it is enough. [Laughter] I’m reading –oh I can’t remember–wait a minute. I’ve got to back-up in my chair and go over and get it. The Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw. Do you know Tom Brokaw? That Tom Brokaw’s book is cute. I like the picture on the front cover. I guess it is a couple who are saying “good-bye”. The Greatest Generation, that’s the book you sent me. The only thing that is sad is people getting killed. That drives me crazy.

I lived through all that war.
