Interviewer: Use ye do pancake day.
Ruby: Oh, Yes. We used to make and serve them lots of times.
Interviewer: Did ye put things in them for Pancake Day?
Ruby: Oh, yes, for pancake day. Five cents or ten cents. The straw out of the broom and a nail.
Interviewer: Now the straw out of the broom … I never heard about that. Was that you were going to be a housemaid or something?
Ruby: Work or something like that.
Interviewer: The button, for a bachelor …
Ruby: The button … sometimes someone swallowed the button or the ten cents.
