[DOROTHY] We’d only been in the house about three weeks I think and Bill had a kidney stone, so he was in the hospital for a while. When he came out, Oz Catt found a great big huge trunk of a tree, so all the guys around came and helped put it up so I could have a clothesline. It was great, and then Marriette Catt and I could use the same pole. You don’t think about that now because you have dryers, but in those days, it was pretty hard trying to get things dry.”
