Heather: What were your thoughts during the war?

Audrey: I didn’t have any fear of them coming over here. I never had a newspaper. I hated to read about it. I was so busy with kids.

Crystal was born the day before Pearl Harbor and I was in the hospital. They closed all the curtains at night. We never got bombed. It was funny hearing the planes go over the hospital. Seems so I counted sixteen planes the first day. So I said to myself, I wonder if sixteen planes will go over tomorrow. However, after that day only a few planes went over. I was glad to be home because a hospital is where they want to bomb.
